Between commuting with heavy bags, sitting in a chair for much of the day, holding our arms in a fixed tying position, those of us who work a regular office job place a lot of strain on our spines, resulting in chronic back pain. This series stretches and strengthens the spine, preventing future injuries and easing past ones. Cat/cow pose warms and massages the spine, while reclining big toe pose lengthens and stretches it. A short series of "baby" backbends playfully challenges us to explore how we crunch our lower backs - and how to treat the area with more kindness and compassion. Finally, wind-releasing pose strengthens the abdominal muscles, which support the lower back so as to prevent further strain. NYV0037
