If you keep up a regular exercise routine or work in a physical job, then you may regularly suffer from muscles soreness. Scientists believe that when the muscles are required to work harder or in a different way than usual, then the muscle fibers undergo microscopic damage, resulting in soreness.

Yoga can help alleviate the effects of overworked muscles. Here are a few of our go-to poses.

Wide-legged forward bend

-Stand with the legs far apart. Align the heels and turn the toes slightly inward. Place your hands on your hips.
-Take in a deep, cleansing breath, lifting the torso. On your exhale, fold forward at the hips. Press the palms of the hands into the floor in the middle of your legs. If you’re more flexible, bring the hands to your shins, ankles or feet. Get a deeper stretch by pulling on the ankles.
-Allow the head to dangle, aiming to place the crown of the head on the floor. You may reach the fingertips in between the legs, toward the back of the room.
-Remain in the pose for 5-10 breaths. On each exhalation, stretch and pull gently for a maximum stretch.
-To get out of the pose, bring the hands back to the hips and inhale, raising the torse back up to standing.
