She Is Trying Out A New Yoga Pose. Now Watch Her Dog’s Unexpected Reaction!

Certain animals are naturals at yoga. They can flex and contort their furry little bodies into the craziest positions without even thinking about it. Practically every time a dog or cat switches positions, or gets up from a nap, they have to yawn and do a big stretch before flopping back over into another yoga-like pose to resume their sleep.

Our pets bodies were seemingly built for stretching and that’s why they are among the top performers of what we humans call yoga on the planet. People have a lot of catching up to do if they want to be able to keep up with their pets in the yoga department.

One woman was doing just that and decided to film herself practicing her technique. She sat down her mat, positioned the camera directly at it, and got straight to work. In the video you can see her trying out a new yoga pose as she tells her dog to also try the move.

As she struggles to perform the pose the dog effortlessly masters it with both ease and grace. The adorable yogi dog is further proof that animals are naturals at the ancient practice and have inherent incredible stretching abilities.

Perhaps this woman should bring her canine friend to an animal yoga class. Some studios offer classes where humans and animals, mainly cats and dogs, can get their stretch on. There are even specific poses and maneuvers that have been specially developed for them.

Instead of tripping over your poor pet while switching poses, you can instead incorporate them into a session, and you will both be happier and healthier from it. After all, a yogi dog (or cat) can teach us mere mortals a lot about stretching, so why not partner up with your pet!

Simple Life Hacks To Relieve Sciatica and Lower Back Pain Quickly

Sciatica is a painful and debilitating condition to have to suffer through. If you’ve ever experienced it then you know how miserable the severe nerve pain makes you feel, it’s both mentally and physically exhausting! Simple everyday activities, such as sitting down or standing up and walking across the room, suddenly become hard to do and it can really affect life and spirit. There are several causes and variations of sciatica but the medical condition is most generally characterized as back pain originating in the buttocks or lower spine area, which goes down the leg(s) and radiates through the lower body area.

The reason why sciatica is referred to as sciatic nerve pain is because it stems from the irritation, pressure, and/or pinching of several nerves which run from the spinal cord to the sciatic nerves. When the area surrounding the nerves in the lower back and spine becomes severely inflamed it causes an intense, radiating type of pain to shoot out along those affected sciatic nerves.

The pain tends to range from moderate and manageable to severe and intolerable, but it can get a lot worse. People report that sneezing, coughing, getting up or sitting down too quickly, sudden movements, and things that put strain and pressure on the area can cause the pain to suddenly flare up.

A combination of lifestyle changes and medicine is how sciatica is treated. To help manage discomfort and pain medications may be prescribed and doctors recommend that patients take NSAIDs, like Aleve, to help reduce swelling and inflammation in the lower back. You should also try to stay active and strengthen your core to prevent future flare ups. Yoga is one of the best ways to condition your body and get into shape and it’s highly recommended that you start stretching.

Activities that place a lot of stress on the lower back should also be limited. In particular, bending or folding forward should be avoided like the plague!
