Yoga For Low Back Care
Mission Cliffs Climbing Gym, Sunday, March 23rd, 1:30-3:30pm.
Yoga is supposed to be good for your back, right? Only if you’re practicing with healthy alignment. In this workshop we’ll move through a sequence of “low back candy” poses that provide release and relief, and we’ll address common mis-alignments that can aggravate this injury-prone area. We will also go over ways you can modify your practice in your regular classes if you’re already experiencing low back pain. You’ll leave with the tools you need to sustain your yoga practice for many years to come.
About Barbie: Barbie has over five years experience teaching yoga. She promotes joy and presence in her classes by making them challenging but achievable; entertaining but uncomplicated; and accessible (not too much Sanskrit!) without losing touch with tradition. Her academic background is complemented by the spiritual nature of her yoga teacher trainings, making her uniquely qualified to host yoga classes that promote harmony of the body, mind, and spirit.

Check out my blog: It’s an archive of poses, transitions, flows, and quips that I’ve picked up attending yoga classes and workshops with a number of different teachers. Every now and then I’ll use my academic knowledge and resources to write a post about what science has to say about yoga. My goal is to share clear, concise ideas with other teachers and committed yogis. I try to keep my explanations pretty quick to leave the exploration up to you! Visit my blog >>
