The sacrum, or lower back, is an incredibly powerful part of the human anatomy. Itas what enables you to stand upright and tall, it unites your upper and lower body, it roots you to the earthaand it is one of the most common areas where people experience chronic pain and discomfort. Yoga practice can have a transformative effect on lower back problems: it allows the body to gain the range of movement and flexibility that short-circuits the mindas perception of limitation and pain. Yoga for a Healthy Lower Back will help you understand lower back pain and heal it through gentle exercises that can be done even by those with no previous yoga experience.
