Sitting down all day makes for really tight hips and hamstrings which often is the root cause of low back pain. If any of that sounds like it pertains to you, give this sequence a try. Always work within a pain-free range, and never push yourself too hard. Breathe 5-7 long, full breaths in each pose before going on to the next posture. Have a wonderful weekend! PS- A gentle yoga sequence, yoga for better sleep, and a short energizing yoga flow to combat the afternoon slump.
When doing a seated forward bend, it's important to keep the feet strongly flexed throughout and to engage your thighs as much a possible and get the best hamstring stretch possible. Keep the spine long and straight. It doesn't matter how far down your torso comes. Imagining the pelvis as a bowl slowly tipping forward helps encourage the correct rotation of the torso over the legs.
