Tone Those Legs + Relieve Back Pain
By Melissa Williams, Yoga Instructor, RYT

Sneak Peek:  We’ve worked out the best 3 moves for toned legs and a pain-free back!


Low backache? Your inner thighs may be to blame.




 
Unfortunately
most Americans have some kind of back pain.

While we attribute much of that pain to sedentary lifestyle, or a lifestyle where too much time is spent sitting (in a car, at a computer, etc.), there is another cause of back pain...
weak inner thigh or adductor muscles.
 
Mothers often complain of back pain, whether their children are newborns or grown and out of the house.

Why?
Pregnancy can weaken the inner thigh muscles, causing the tailbone to tuck, creating tension in the low back and further weakening the legs.  If it goes uncorrected, posture can be affected as can every day movements.
