Upcoming Workshops and Events:
Back Care Basics
Back pain sufferers take heart!
Come and find relief and discover new options for your home
practice. Whether you have general backache, stiffness, or
soreness in your upper spine, scoliosis, SI joint dysfunction, or
sciatica, this workshop will teach you how to relax and modify
poses to make them work for you. Yoga poses traction the
spine. Once the spine elongates and decompresses, ease of
motion is restored, as is free and easy breathing. You’ll go
home knowing how to set up simple poses that alleviate
discomfort and get a new lease on life.
Yoga Series for a Healthy Back
Nov 8, Dec 13 & Jan 10
The spine is the central feature of the human body. It supports
the head, gives stability to the pectoral and pelvic girdle, and
transmits body weight while standing and walking. In the yogic
tradition, the spine is the abode of the nadis, channels through
which the energies of the subtle body are said to flow.
Muscular imbalance, spinal curve distortion, and incorrect
posture cause back pain, body misalignment, and loss of
energy. If you wish to improve your understanding of back
issues, learn how traditional and modified yoga poses can
help to improve spinal alignment and mobility, and to
decrease back pain, this workshop is for you.
