10 Yoga Poses for Parents with Back Pain

Carrying. Sitting. Bending over backwards--sometimes literally.

Welcome to parenthood.

As soon as that little bundle of joy arrives, you can expect your body to be contorted into so many different directions that even the most flexible parent will have back pain.

Your back is involved in every movement you do. If your body alignment is shifted even just slightly, you are putting more stress than necessary on your back. Proper posture while standing and sitting is the first way to help with back pain. Yoga, however, is a more proactive approach to managing back pain.

These 10 yoga poses stretch and strengthen the back to help ease pain.
