A Practice to Maintain a Healthy Lower Back

Move through this gentle practice that’s designed to support lower back health. You’ll begin lying down with a centering breath practice. After that, you’ll warm up with flowing movement in and out of bridge pose before doing a breath-filled sequence that includes reclined hip and hamstring stretches, a tabletop to down dog flow, prone back and core strengtheners, and more.

You’ll conclude with a breath retention practice in tadaka mudra—a reclined stretch that is beneficial to overall back health—and savasana.
