Pain is not permanent: Understanding the low back
March 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
If you ever said, “My low back hurts too much to go to yoga today,” this workshop is for you! Yoga is a powerful practice for restoring full range of motion and reducing low back pain. However, not all classes are created equally. Many of us carry injury or compromise into today’s fast-paced classes, and can leave the room feeling frustrated- or even feeling worse.
This workshop is designed for those experiencing chronic low-back stiffness or pain. The class will provide concrete tools to break the cycle of pain= stiffness= avoidance= more pain.
The two-hour class consists of a brief overview of the general anatomy and mechanics of the lower back and a deliberately paced asana practice in a personalized setting. We will explore common asanas to help give you strategies for increasing physical integration and a greater sense of physical capacity in any class setting. You will walk away with greater understanding and a clear set of tools to use in your daily physical practice. Using a new understanding of your own individual practice, you can break the cycle of physical pain and regain a full range of motion.
