I have herniated disc, what are the yoga exercises for that?

Yoga For Injuries

The practice of Yoga can be helpful to diagnosed disc problems after the acute stage has passed.
Asanas can tone your back muscles, make it more flexible, alleviate pain and improve your posture.
Symptoms of a herniated disc include: pain in back and/or leg; stiffness, numbness, weakness or tingling in leg or back; and/or shooting pain down leg. With a posterior (backside) disc herniation, back bends will help reduce inflammation and help press the nucleus back into the disk. You want to choose back bends that focus on the low back like cobra, camel, and bridge pose. Forward bends are contraindicated.
