"Yoga for Back Pain" provides a structured series of yoga poses which aim to improve flexibility and strength, and reduce back pain. Whether you have lower or upper back pain, these exercises will improve your lumbar function and may provide relief for backache.
According to ancient Ayurvedic texts, back pain is caused from lack of proper exercise and excess stress. The exercises in this app were chosen because they strengthen the spine. In yoga there is an axiom, “you are only as old as your spine”. Keep your spine young and flexible with “Yoga for Back Pain”.

The program guides you through several yoga poses while emphasizing correct breathing methods. As you become accustomed to the exercises, you can change the settings from beginner to intermediate, for a longer more effective session.

Ratings and Reviews
This app really work's wonders, at first it was tough to get into position because my back was going in and out of spasms but after the third session I started to notice improvement in my back pain and the spasms went away. Now any time I feel the pain coming back I usually do 2 sessions and it takes care of me. The addition of voice over option is awesome and now I don't have to look at the screen, but voice over and sound only works on my I phone and I pad if I have the side button is turned off of mute!!! But that is the same with all apps. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing future apps from this company.
I downloaded the app this morning, unaware that my office would become a place where I could coax my lumbar region from a state of screeching, furious pain to a relaxed and flexible muscle group above my glutes! I feel like a troupe of masseuses and physical therapists crossed paths and then used their tiny, nimble hands and superior skeletomuscular book learning to send me straight into a lower-back nirvana. This app is the greatest, I'm recommending it to all of my partners today!
After a long stressful day, my back feels so strained. Noticed this app is free for limited time (I'm a sucker for free apps) so thought I would give it a shot. It is awesome!! After one day of use (twice a day) I feel less pressure in my lower back. Paired with Universal Breathing (where I was notified about this free version) you will feel super relaxed and limber. Totally worth however much it costs when not free. Cheaper than going to a chiropractor.... LOVE IT!!!
