Video: Yoga for backpain, weightloss and more
Long work hours, sitting for extended periods at a desk and excessive responsibility are all a part and parcel of most careers today. As a result, youngsters are facing health issues such as chronic backpain, deep-vein thrombosis, weight gain and mental stress.
To help you combat these four common complaints, we got senior yoga instructor Kamlesh Barwal of the Art of Living Foundation to demonstrate a series of yoga poses and practices.
First up, we have three poses for backpain -- the Cat Stretch (Marjarasana), the Locust Stretch (Shalabhasana) and the Cobra Posture (Bhujangasana).
