Yoga can be an invaluable practice for managing existing back conditions, helping prevent future problems and dealing with some acute back pain episodes.
In this workshop, we will use breathing practices to bring awareness to the spine and gentle movements suitable for when we have reduced mobility. Then we will move through limbering sequences toward standing, seated, prone and supine postures to take the spine through its full range of flexibilities.
We will look at what it means to bring the spine into its neutral curves and how we can use the all-important core muscle group to support our spine during practice. Using strengthening and stabilising postures to help address any muscle imbalances and weakness that may contribute to our back problems. We will finish with some more restorative postures and savasana.
