Yoga classes have brought relief to many back pain and tension headache sufferers. This mind-body practice combines awareness and breathing with a series of poses that loosen up muscles and joints. It also increases range of motion and aligns the spine, which can ease aches for those who have chronic back complaints. Styles of yoga range from seated to athletic, so there’s a class for everyone regardless of fitness level. How to find one: Yoga is taught everywhere from yoga studios to health clubs to retreat centers. Once you’re in class, tell the instructor about any injuries or chronic pain issues, and don’t do anything that hurts or strains your body.
