In brief: Experiment

Yoga is a way to stretch.
Keeping your "core" (tummy and back muscles) limber and strong can help reduce back pain. Experiment with the movements and positions. Choose those that work the "core." a little discomfort is okay. If a position is really uncomfortable (during or after), try something different.
