This fall, a team of British academics, yoga teachers and practitioners will join forces to find out if a 12-week course of Iyengar Yoga can be used to treat lower back pain. More than 260 people between the ages of 18 and 65 who have had back pain in the past 18 months will participate in the trial. David Torgerson, director of the University of the York Clinical Trials Unit, told the BBC, "If the trial shows yoga to be effective then this low-cost treatment will have a considerable impact in the quality of life of patients with back pain." Which asanas do you find best relieve—or even prevent—lower back pain?
