This series of four poses is designed to prevent back pain through improving basic spinal flexibility, strengthening the core and the spinal support muscles, and becoming comfortable with the movements that control flexion and extention of the spine. On each page, you will find links to full instructions for each pose.

Begin the series by coming on to all fours with the wrists underneath the shoulders and the knees underneath the hips.
