Full Description

Join us as we spend six weeks strengthening and stretching the low back, building core strength and focusing on the key yogic principles of stability and ease. We'll discuss anatomy, bring awareness to posture and reflect on habits that can help and hinder our condition.

You will learn how to do yoga on your own to care for your back. As part of this course, please plan to do a gentle home yoga practice and light reading that will support the work we do in class.

These are small classes with individual attention.

Please contact Melissa if you have concerns about whether or not this class is appropriate for you.

Melissa was trained by Robin Rothenberg, ERYT-500 and Professional Yoga Therapist in the protocol for Essential Low Back Program, and is qualified to present this series for therapeutic purposes.
