This series of standing yoga poses addresses several of the causes of back pain - tight hamstrings and weak hips. The series starts with Mountain Pose which helps establish a postural baseline. You will then move into three poses that stretch the hamstrings and strengthen and align the hips.
Begin the series by coming to stand in Mountain Pose - Tadasana.
Take 5-10 breaths here.
