Yoga for back care

pexels-tim-samuel-6697118 copy.jpg

Back pain and stiffness can relate to a range of different causes and can evolve over many years. In addition, our busy lifestyles means our postural muscles are constantly turned on and may start to pull in different ways.

 

Yoga can help to balance posture, induce relaxation and build a strong yet supple spine. Incorporating subtle breath work with relaxing and targeted yoga poses, these classes will assist you to develop a body centred awareness, ease in balance and alignment, and show you how to care for your back during yoga practice.

 

We will involve all parts of the spine, lower, thoracic and neck, with the main focal areas on the lower back and pelvis.

Testimonial:

I found your short course in yoga for back care, incredibly helpful. … The individual attention and correction you gave each of the participants was ... hugely beneficial. It was a privilege to be a member of your class.
