Address367 New Cross Road
It’s estimated that around 80% of adults experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. And it is rated as one of the most debilitating health conditions of the modern world. Many people turn to yoga as an affective way of managing back pain and to help restore movement and mobility into their spines and lives. Yoga can also be extremely helpful in the management of pain. We know now that pain is phycological and that factors such as stress will influence the pain response. Yogic practices that help to calm the nervous system can be very useful in reducing and managing back pain.
Join Alice for this 2 hour workshop where you’ll be invited to participate in a gentle asana practice designed to mobilise the spine. The asana practice will flow, however there will also be anatomical discussion so you’ll know how to modify your practice in an open class setting. There will also be breath work, meditation and restorative yoga postures to address the psychological affects of managing back pain. You’re welcome to bring a recording device so that you can record the meditation and relaxations, and you’ll also be offered a worksheet with a short 15 minute home routine that you can use to keep your back happy.
N.B. This is a general workshop for back care and will not address specific conditions or pathologies. If you have any concerns or are unsure about your suitability for this workshop then please contact Alice directly to discuss: firstname.lastname@example.org
