[Live Streamed] Back Care Series with Chiara Guerrieri
Mar 22, 2021| $150
Being upright comes with its challenges! Back pain is the second most common physical complaint (headaches are number one) and the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work. On a happier note, recent studies show that strengthening and stretching exercises like yoga are more effective for managing chronic back pain than surgery or pain medications, and offer little to no harmful side effects. This is good news!
In this six-week Back Care series we will:
• study the basic anatomy and physiology of back pain to uncover common unhealthy habits
• learn and practice healthy alignment and movement patterns (sitting, standing, walking)
• practice gentle stretching and strengthening exercises designed to increase support and balance to the structures of the spine and pelvis, legs and feet
• practice movements that increase circulation, help to relieve pain and speed healing, and build a better mental embody map
You will leave with a well-stocked tool kit of back care savvy that will help you to solve current issues and avoid future problems.
Open to all levels of yoga experience.
✓ Mondays 6pm-7:15pm
✓ March 22nd-April 26th, 2021
Note: Our series require a minimum of five registered participants, by five days before the start date; if you are considering joining please register early.
Cancellation Policy: Refunds of 90% up to five days prior to start of series. No refunds allowable after that time.
About the instructor: Chiara Guerrieri
What to expect in Chiara’s Classes: Chiara teaches us how to connect with the body through the breath, how to track physical sensation moment to moment and how to find an internal sense that guides movement and choices for wellbeing. In both her SoulMat & Hatha yoga classes, expect to go slowly, to pay attention to your body and breath, and to explore alignment. An important aspect of Chiara’s teaching is to help students learn when – and from where – to stabilize or mobilize. Expect the wisdom of a 30-year teaching career, plus a good dose of humor, to infuse each class.
Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: SoulMat with Patrizia Gavoni, Hatha Yoga with Bob Smith, Forrest Yoga with Ana Forrest, Shari Fredrickson, ParaYoga with Rod Stryker, and dance from around the world.
