5 MINUTE YOGA FLOW FOR LOWER BACK STRAIN

Check out this awesome little flow I use to begin almost every class I teach. Simple, but super effective warm up for the entire back of body. 

🔥 Perfect as a grounding warm up to a longer flow or as a simple everyday mobility sequence to combat strain in the back of the body.
-
😌 When moving, focus on a deep grounding inhale that explores the entire body & a soft smooth exhale that calms a chattering mind and releases any physical tension.
