Posted by on Sep 13, 2017 in Health and Wellness, Stretches

If you're struggling with discomfort in the low back, forward bends can be tricky. Maybe you've tried leaning down towards your toes and felt extreme tightness around the sacrum? Or maybe you've experienced some sharp pain heading into this posture? Either way, this week's Quick Tip is great for you: a modified forward bend that keeps your low back safe.

Check out how the support of a chair, stool, or table allows the low back to release instead of straining to hold your torso up, and still gives you a solid stretch in the hamstrings and glutes. Try it out — playing with the depth that works for you — and let us know what you think!
