Yoga can help ease lower back pain by gently stretching and strengthening the muscles of the lower back and legs.
Check out these poses of yoga that can help you get rid of back pain:
Bow or Dhanurasana
This pose is effective in straightening upper spine hunches. Yet, this pose is meant only for those having light back pain and it is better for anyone with a history of chronic back pain or acute back pain to avoid it.
This pose is a healing posture for the low back but this posture may have a negative effect if done incorrectly or too deep. This posture decreases stiffness in the lower back, enlarges the chest, and strengthens the arms and shoulders.
Corpse or Savasana
The Corpse Yoga Pose is considered as classic relaxation yoga pose. hysiological changes include the lowering of your respiration and heart beat. It will also reduce your body's energy loss, remove your stress and rest your whole system.

Those are only some of the poses that can help you get rid of back pain. Take a yoga class to know more poses. However, it is best to check out with your doctor as well before trying any yoga poses and consult with your yoga trainer.
