Therapeutic Yoga for Low Back Pain – The Next Stage of Healing
March 28| $249
This 8-week series is taught progressively, and intended for students of all levels and abilities. We learn yoga poses, basic anatomy, breath work, and how deep relaxation helps alleviate chronic low back pain and tension. This highly effective program is based on the two largest, most definitive studies utilizing yoga therapy for the treatment of chronic lower back pain. The series offers a particularly gentle form of yoga, with a strong focus on individual adaptation and breath development. Our practice is extremely accessible for all body types.
This enhanced course (the next stage of healing) is appropriate for new students and returning students who want to continue work around healing your back, and the connection of low back pain to neck pain.
We will also take a deeper look at the breath and relationship to chronic pain. This style of breathing compliments the Essential Low Back Program, and is based on scientific research by Robin Rothenberg, also the creator and author of the Essential Low Back Program. This breakthrough type of breathing can help calm the nervous system, build inner core strength, and improve overall health.
We will also be exploring some additional movement to relieve tension in the head, neck, shoulders and jaw, with a whole body approach to low back pain, neck pain, and breath.
