Background: Yoga has garnered considerable public interest and attention across various countries worldwide, frequently being suggested as a means to enhance one's health. It encompasses more than mere physical exercises, incorporating a distinct philosophical outlook and psychological processes. This aspect is crucial when integrating exercises into today's unique cultural milieus. Aim: To determine the effect of selected yoga postures in treating backache. Methods: A quasi-experimental design was chosen to substantiate the objectives of this study. Seven different postures were considered; eight respondents recorded their responses after the yoga therapy. A purposive sampling technique has been followed to acquire the data. The data were screened and analysed using a one-sample t-test to signify the effectiveness of the yoga postures. Moreover, ANOVA is used to analyse posture comparison and compute whether all participants obtained the same relief. Furthermore, twelve cohorts participated in an awareness seminar and took part in thirteen different treatments; the effectiveness of such treatments was gauged via t-test. Results: Significant levels of relief were identified. However, the extent of relief among participants was different. Conclusion: This study adds to the literature related to the effect of yoga in reducing back pain. The study results can be used to create awareness of providing conventional treatment substitutions.
