Urd­hva Mukha Svanasana can strain your lower back due to tight­ness or lack of sup­port from the front of your body. If you feel any strain in your back, mod­ify the pose with props—or by bend­ing your knees to de­crease the back­bend. An­other help­ful mod­i­fi­ca­tion is to rest with your legs down and your fore­arms on a small bol­ster so the back­bend is gen­tler. This way, you can still ex­pe­ri­ence the ac­tions of your legs, lower ab­domen, up­per back, and shoul­ders, but with less ef­fort and range of mo­tion than in the mod­i­fi­ca­tion below.
