Go into a forward right lunge. Lower your left knee keeping your hips tucked underneath you and glutes squeezed. Lift both arms into the air and bring your hips slightly forward. Hold for 30 seconds.
3) Pigeon Pose
Go onto all fours. Cross your right leg into your abdomen. Bring your entire spine towards the floor. Keep both your arms back or at your front. Hold for 30 seconds.
4) 90/90 Stretch
Lay on the floor on your back and cross your left ankle over your right knee. Grip the thigh on your right leg and pull the knee towards you, lifting the foot off the floor. Pull the knee further up to increase the stretch. Hold for 30 seconds and alternate sides. There you have it! Of course if any of these stretches for low back pain are painful for you, STOP!
