Back Care workshop
1:00 - 3:30 pm
Back Pain afflicts at least 60% of Americans and costs billions of dollars in treatments each year. Many feel that they must learn to live with this chronic pain. Many turn to yoga to seek relief with little relief or worsening of symptoms. In this workshop students will learn about some basic problems with the spine and how to address them in their personal practice. With correct attention to alignment, yoga asana practice can increase the health and longevity of the spine. A systematic approach using props can create stability, fluidity, and mobility in the spine thus breaking down the bodies habitual patterns of movement.
