It’s been suggested that Homo sapiens are doomed to inevitable back pain, due to the intense pressure gravity places on our upright spines—a fate not suffered by the quadrupeds of the animal kingdom. Whether or not that’s the case, modern life can indeed make back pain feel inevitable, but the ingenuity of the achey Homo sapien has given us a powerful tool for fighting it: Yoga! This 30 minute restorative yoga session with Demi is designed to relieve and prevent back pain through gentle stretches and strengthening poses you can keep in your everyday arsenal to build a strong, pain-resistant back.
