Treat yourself to a gentle yoga based back care practice that releases tension, reduces pain and improves postural alignment. This class is modeled after the back rehabilitation principles developed by Dr. Mary Pullig-Schatz MD and is taught by a medical professional. We emphasize stress reduction and selective stretching and strengthening of the major muscles that act on the spine and pelvis providing an indispensable intervention for chronic back and neck discomfort. This program is conscientiously designed to decompress & hydrate intervertebral discs, take pressure off spinal nerve roots, improve postural alignment, and correct imbalances in muscle length & strength. You will learn self-care practices that release unnecessary tension, stabilize the torso, balance the sacro-iliac joints, and restore comfort to your bodymind. No prior yoga experience needed. All levels welcome. Bring your own yoga mat.
