Yoga for back pain

How to cope with working from home

Working from home has gone from being the exception to the normal everyday situation. A difficult situation, because in addition to the limited opportunities for sporting activities, the psyche also suffers from isolation and monotony. Added to this is a problem that almost all people with a desk job are confronted with sooner or later: Back pain. To help you keep fit at home and prevent pain, we have put together a yoga workout that will help you to strengthen your back - and give you some much-needed time out from the stresses of everyday life.

Child's Pose (Balasana)
