Balancing or strengthening your core will help protect your lower back.

There are specific muscles that need to be strengthened for lower back support.

In Yoga one Asana that uses these specific muscles is the Crow Pose (Bakasana).

You can practise simply going from the kneeling position to bringing the knees to the chest until you are comfortable bringing your legs through. Use your fists instead of your hands until you have this exercise mastered.
