Ease back pain
According to Statistics Canada, four out of five adults will experience back pain at some point in their life. That's a whopping 80 percent of the population who will suffer from some form of back-related pain whether acute or chronic. To help minimize back pain and prevent further damage, it's important to be proactive with spinal health. I spoke with Cynthia Funk, co-director and yoga instructor at The Yoga Sanctuary in Toronto, to find out which yoga positions focus on the back to help lengthen the spine and reduce pressure.
