YOGA AND THE HEALTHY SPINE

No yoga experience necessary – All are welcome!

Does your back ache after driving for long periods, standing or sitting at your computer?
Do you have or have you had back pain? Do you feel pain in your lower back when in cobra, uttanasna (forward fold), trikanasana, back bends or any other yoga poses?
If you answered yes to any of the above, this workshop will be perfect for you, as we explore how to access your body in a mindful, gentle and safe manner to allow the spine to work pain free in yoga poses and everyday life.
We will explore yoga poses that will lengthen and strengthen the spine to allow ease of movement and bring your body into alignment as you learn to keep your spine healthy.
  • Low back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease 2010.
  • Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work. In fact, back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.
  • One-half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year
  • Experts estimate that as much as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in their lives
  • Most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic—meaning they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer.
  • Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain—and that’s just for the more easily identified costs
