4. Then, while inhaling, begin to move the pelvis forward, moving your center of gravity to your knees.
5. Your pelvis should stand in line with your knees.

 9) Butterfly pose:

7. Feel free to hold this position for 1-3 minutes.
8. Breathing deeply and thinking positively.

 All these poses are vital to relieving back pain, stimulate the blood circulation in the pelvis, and improve the circulation of the lymphatic fluid. They not only improve your overall health but also enhance your mood and productivity.
But what makes them amazing is that you won’t need any special equipment or even much time to implement them on a daily basis. Try not to forget that it’ll be much better to have a 30-minute yoga session every day, than to have a 2-hour workout, say, once a week.
Even though none of these poses requires special equipment, make sure that your clothes allow you to bend and stretch. And remember: normally, there are no restrictions for yoga exercises. But in case you feel any discomfort doing any of these poses, or you have any special health condition, consult your doctor before you start practicing.
