Release Lower Back Tension

Release Lower Back Tension
Feeling really stiff lately and in need of a good stretch to release tightness?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1st row:
Always therapeutic and relaxing to start with child’s pose then a couple of cat-cow stretches. Inhale arch back, exhale round back 5x.
2nd row:
•Squat: Release tension in the back as you twist and open up the hips too.
•Seated Twist: Keep spike long. Inhale to lengthen the spine, exhale to twist.
3rd row:
•Butterfly pose to stretch the spine & inner thighs.
•On your back: Hug knees to chest keeping shoulders down, using core strength to get hips closer to the ground to stretch the lower back. Then open legs for happy baby to stretch hamstrings and inner thighs too.
Rest in supine butterfly for a few deep breaths.
4th row:
•Thread The Needle: Stretching the glutes helps release tightness in the lower back too. Relax shoulders and lengthen the tailbone down to feel the stretch.
Finish with a good spinal twist, breathing into the belly, exhaling from the lower back.

Hold these poses for 1-5min.
