Yesterday I twisted my back and wow do I ever now have compassion for people with back pain. Tiger balm, stretching, extra strength Advil … Nothing was really a match for it.
Back pain is horrible. I think I had a muscle spasm, but whatever it was it affected my whole entire body.
Preventative measures are good, safe, careful back workouts practicing good alignment. That’s why it is important to go to class! Working out at home is great, but when you do yoga in a studio with a licensed certified yoga instructor to watch your alignment & keep you safer.
