This video is more instructional than it is a routine. They do go into the poses with you, but they don’t hold them for very long, and they only do them once, even though they say you have to do them 3-4 times.

These stretches demonstrated are suggested to relieve back and beck pain, but some of these poses are actually super hard…and I think they’d actually make back pain worse if you aren’t flexible, to be honest. There were some poses I couldn’t even do, and since there were no modifications offered, it was kind of impossible to follow, which made it kind of frustrating.

However, I did like how each of the poses had a detailed explanation on how to do them and what their benefits are. Plus, there were also some easy moves, and the ones I was able to do left me feeling pretty good at the end, so this workout has various pros and cons.

All in all I’d say, if you want to learn some asanas that could help relieve back pain, this is a good place to start, but don’t try to push yourself to the extent that these very flexible people do. Skip the ones that are too hard and work your way up to them. Don’t hurt yourself in your attempt to make your back pain feel better! And as always, consult a doctor if you have really bad pain.
