And I have got to apologise for not being regular and maintaining a proper schedule, but things just keep coming up, like my examinations, so really sorry about that.
This series is for lower back pain. The most important thing about lower back pain is the CAUSE :
1. STRAIN - sitting for long hoursss.. lifting heavy stuff.. bending the wrong way all of a sudden. You know just the normal kind.
2. Vitamin B12 defeciency, constipation, kidney problems which radiate the pain and such.
This is only for STRAIN and people with Vitamin B12 defeciency, constipation, kidney problems please do not do this, you will not be able to raise your body off the ground.
And trust me on this one because I have severe back pain for a few months. I guess i just overexerted myself. The pain went down in a span of 2 weeks, just like that, I keep doing these sequences once a week so that the pain does not recur.
TRUST ME, do it the right way and it reallyy helps. It was a beautiful day, though cloudy the breeze was amazing and relaxing.
GETTING TO WORKKK NOWW !! Do each count for 9 counts and increase it to 15 counts and 2 rounds or maybe 3 depending on the time you can spare.
1. STANDING GOMUKHA (COW)
And as usual sync everything with your breathing.
INHALE as you take your arm from the side.
EXHALE as you try to hold hands together. If you cant reach it does not matter. 👍
Make sure legs are like in the pic and repeat the aasan with your other hand and leg.
2. VEERABADHRASAN 3
INHALE and start with this stance, the heels of both you feet should be perpendicular to each other.
Now, on INHALATION, turn.
On EXHALATION , raise right leg up.
Repeat the same with the other leg.
3. CHAALANA APANAASAN / THIRIYAK
INHALE, bend knees and liftt feet slightly off the ground.
EXHALE and slowly just roll your back, legs moving sideways, slowly, you can feel the relief pass through your back. 😊😊😍
4. VARIATION OF THIRIYAK
INHALE, keep knees straight.
EXHALE, legs to one side and your head to the opposite side.
Repeat the same the other side. Felt like I was playing dead for a while. 😂
5. ARDHAMA CHANDRIYASAN
First, make sure one leg goes beneath your butt, or seat or ass, whichever word you find comfortable to read. 😁
Then cross over your other leg to the opposite side.
Then turn your face towards the leg that is under the butt.
Now the hands, if your left leg is crossed over, then your right hand goes around that knee and behind your back.
Then the other hand just reaches out to join at the back. And as usual do not worry if you cant reach, and do not over exert. Just do as much as you can increasing the count as you go by.
And the head, look straight.
INHALE, when turning and then EXHALE.
6. SETHU BANDHAASAN
On INHALATION lift you body up.
