Lead by Jyoti Shah
Back pain is one of the most frequent causes of activity-limitation in adults today. In this program, practitioners will be lead through a pathway to a "Better Back". This program is designed in a way so that the practitioners can find benefits beyond just the physical form of movement or stretches. By bringing slow movements and bodily awareness in their asana practice, and focusing on the proper breathing, this program can improve the overall health of the postural imbalance and asymmetries of the body to help alleviate back pain. These practices can also help lower stress and reduce the anxiety and depression often associated with back pain.
In this 10-week program, you will learn various adaptable asanas and movements to support and stabilize, stretch and strengthen your spine from head to tail where each movement is breath centric. Healing happens when awareness is brought to the breath and with mindful movements.
This class is for those who are able to move up and down from the floor and no prior yoga experience needed to participate. Each week, we’ll begin on the floor either lying down or sitting on the floor, then up to standing poses and make our way back down to the floor for supine/prone poses and end with deep relaxation.
The following are the props needed for this class- a yoga mat, two blankets, and one pillow.
