3. Cow Stretch
Get down on your hands and knees keeping your spine parallel to the floor. Gently arch your back downwards pushing your head up and your belly towards the floor.

Relax and repeat the stretch 12 times.
7. Low Back Twists
Lie on your back with your knees bent. Stretch your arms out on both sides with the palms pressing into the floor as if trying to form a lower case “t” with your body.
