Nowadays, poor diet and busy lifestyle are creating many barriers against healthy living, leading to several diseases and conditions. Cervical pain and lower back pain are also one of such illnesses or conditions that are becoming relatively common among many people. So, it is essential to take a pause and look upon your body posture, especially if you are in a desk job. Cervical Pain severely affects the cervical spine. And as we all know, our neck is consists of several ligaments, discs and the cervical spine or vertebrate. The deterioration caused by cervical pain to the vertebrate can deplete the cushioning effect of the neck, which may lead to other health issues.
Apart from sitting and standing in the wrong position, stress and an unhealthy diet are also considerable contributors to cervical and lower back pain. People suffering from backaches & cervical experience intense pain and stiffness in the neck, back, and shoulder regions. Therefore, the program designed by Mahamukti Yoga will give you a closer look at your lower back and cervical pain and what type of stretches and yoga can help to cure it. In our private yoga sessions for cervical pain and lower back pain, our yoga teacher will teach you listed below yoga asanas and many other pranayamas so that you will be able to overcome pain.
Matsyasana (Fish Pose): To perform this pose, cross your legs and bend backwards until your head touches the mat/floor. The pose helps to increase flexibility and give relief to neck and back soreness. During the stretch, it also improves the airflow into the lungs. Fish pose is beneficial for cervical pain induced by a desk job.
Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose): Imitating like a cobra snake, this pose eliminates neck, back, shoulder and spine stiffness. The spine plays an essential role in sending impulses to the brain and other parts from the neck to the lower back. But during cervical pain or spondylosis, the spine becomes stiff, and nerve impulses get clogged, leading to other health issues in the body. Bhujangasana lessens the severity of lower back pain/cervical pain.
Makarasana (Crocodile Pose): Like Matsyasana, Makarasana also aids spine and neck stiffness and pain by resuming them to their normal position. This yoga asana is created to provide immense relaxation to the spine to get rid of cervical pain.

Besides, it also relieves chronic digestive conditions like indigestion, constipation, etc. To perform this pose, lie on the ground and raise your legs and back, shaping like a boat.
Ardha Shalabhasana (Half-Locust Pose): It is done by lying down in a prone position, where the entire chin and stomach touches the ground or mat with one leg remains lifted in the air. It is an excellent hip-opener yoga pose that benefits the lower body. Ardha Shalbhasana gives the best relief from lower back pain and increases the flexibility of the legs too.
Shashank-Bhujangasana (Striking Cobra Pose): This yoga asana is defined as the combination of Shashanka (Hare Pose) and Bhujangasana (Cobra pose). To do this pose, stretch yourself from a bow position to a striking snake position. While performing this yoga asana, moving from one pose to another will elongate and strengthen your spine and neck.
Kohni Chalana (Elbow Rotations): The Kohni Chalana pose improves mobility and the strength of the shoulders. To perform it, move your shoulders with the help of your elbow and arms. This movement increases the blood circulation in the neck area and gives relief from cervical pain.
