Soothe Your Back at the End of the Day with this Pose

half down dog twist

We develop back pain for many reasons: stress, poor posture, muscular imbalance and lack of core strength to name a few. Half Down Dog Twist soothes back tightness while helping improve your posture, so hopefully you will have less back pain in the future.

Half Down Dog Twist is a deep stretch for the shoulder and chest--muscles that get tight and shortened with hours of desk work or driving. Adding a twist stretches and lengthens the muscles along the spine.

Enjoy this pose at the end of a long day or at any time you want to do something nice for your posture and back.
