This 2 hour yoga workshop is designed specifically for those who experience low back pain.
How can yoga help low back pain?
Yoga is a mind-body practice that addresses both the physical and cognitive factors that influence back pain.
On a physical level, yoga can increase strength, stamina and flexibility, helping you to return to doing whatever you need to do, whether it is cycle to work, carry your kids or get through the day at your desk.
On a psychological level, yoga can facilitate relaxation and promote greater mind-body awareness, helping you to address fear, anxiety and stress that may be contributing to your ongoing back pain.
What the workshop will cover
The ‘Yoga for Back Pain’ workshop provides you with an introduction on how yoga can benefit low back pain.
You will use gentle flowing movements and longer held stretches to release areas of spasm, tension and tightness in your back, legs and hips.
You will connect your breath with movement to improve your pelvic and core stability.
You will learn poses to safely build strength in your core, legs and back muscles, supporting your recovery and preventing further episodes of low back pain.
You will learn techniques for relaxation and deep rest
