8. Locust Pose
Locust Pose, or Salbhasana, is a backbend that manages back pain and stretches tense muscles. You’ll lie on the floor on your stomach and lift your arms and legs up parallel to the floor.
Modifications help make the exercise accessible to all skill levels. You can look forward, or look toward the ground if you’re having trouble relaxing your neck muscles.
You can also add a towel between your hips and your yoga mat for cushioning for sensitive hips. Try to hold the pose for a few breaths, but don’t feel bad if it takes a few tries!
