Desk job calls for long sitting hours straining your back, neck, legs, and hips. But,
you can reverse that damage through improving your lifestyle. Yoga is one
crucial aspect of maintaining spinal cord health. Regularly stretching the
muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support the spine is an important element
of all back exercise programs.
Consult your doctor before you practice these asanas. And it is highly
recommended you practice only under supervision of a physical therapist or
spine specialist. Pregnant females should not be doing these asanas.
Benefits of stretching include:
Reducing tension in muscles supporting the spine
Improving range of motion and overall mobility
Reducing risk of disability caused by back pain
Decreases stiffness in the lower back
Bridge Pose /SetuBandha Asana
Stay in the pose anywhere from 30 seconds to 1 minute. Release with an
exhalation, rolling the spine slowly down onto the floor. Avoid if having neck injury.
Cobra Pose / Bhujanga Asana
Hold the pose anywhere from 15 to 30 seconds, breathing easily. Release back
to the floor with an exhalation.
Mountain Pose /Parvat Asana
Hold the posture for 30 seconds and extend up to 1 minute over a period of days
with regular practice.
Practicing the above sequence of 5 to 7mins daily will release the stiffness &
stress accumulated in the spine.
