Yoga Therapy for the Low Back
Location: Small Business Center, 190 Central Park Square, #209

Tuesdays, November 2, 9, 16, 23 from 6:00-7:00pm     

Investment: $15 per class or $12 per class when you purchase the four class pass.
 

This 60-minute yoga therapy class focuses on the low-back and will be offered for four  consecutive weeks.

Eighty percent of Americans experience low back pain at some point in their adult lives.  According to a study in the journal Spine (Sept. 1, 2009), yoga therapy can reduce pain and improve function in people with chronic low back pain. Chronic low back pain is defined as pain that lasts more than three months and is often difficult to treat.

Yoga helps manage low back pain by strengthening and lengthening the muscles of the lower back, reducing inflammation and increasing circulation. A regular yoga practice also improves posture and body mechanics which can help relieve pain and prevent injury.

In this class, you will practice a mix of floor and standing based movements and breathwork to lengthen and strengthen muscles, releasing connective tissue and letting go of stress.  Register Here
