Most back pain is a symptom of conditions developed over time. It can be caused by overuse injuries, lack of movement, accident trauma, poor posture, prolonged sitting, and emotional and mental stress. The antidote? Healthy movement. Targeted movement increases blood flow to soft tissue, muscles and joints; restores stability and strength; works in an optimal range of motion to restore flexibility; balances the nervous system; promotes healing; and helps prevent injury.

In this exploratory workshop, Linda will present various forms of movement and yoga therapy designed to aid the back. She will guide you toward new insights into how your body moves, what causes pain, the importance of alignment and good posture, how to increase your kinesthetic awareness to produce more fluid and efficient movement in your body, and the vital role of the breath in releasing pain and tension.

No prior yoga experience necessary. Open to all who want to have a healthy, stable back. Also encouraged for teachers who would like to earn therapeutic CEUs.

Each participant will receive a healthy back home practice guide at the workshop.

Cost:
$35 in advance; $40 at the door
