Yoga for Back Pain part 2 - Kati Uttanasana

The Kati Uttanasana (waist tilting)

This is the first basic asana for back pain problems. The procedure is as follows:

1) Lie as in the picture
2) the legs should align with the body and the head should align with the shoulder and the body
3) raise the small of your back without raising the upper back or the butts from the ground
4) Inhale and you perform step 3
5) Exhale as you come back to initial position

Execute this asana gently without applying force anywhere.
