Back Care

Neck & Back Care Workshop

“I sleep so well and with out interruption every time after Back Care, thank you. I alway have problem sleeping and smallest noise would woke me up, but never after your class.” Silvia Medrano

 

“Your class was excellent–exactly what my back and neck needed! It’s so surprising how intense such small movements are.” Amanda

“Don’t know what you did to my back during relaxation, It feel fantastic! Thanks” Caroline

This workshop is for people who are dealing with ongoing chronic or acute back and/or neck stiffness and/or pain. Through modified *restorative yoga poses, you can find much-needed relief from back and neck stiffness and/or pain, with the aim to develop full range of motion of the spine, be stronger and more flexible. These are small group classes, for all levels, that are held in a casual environment. The smaller group setting allows for more personal attention and greater help with adjustments.

*restorative yoga will be use for this class. It is a very gentle practice where postures are meant to be done fully supported by props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps. Once set up in a pose, you should be able to release all the muscles in the body into a passive stretch. Poses are often held for 3-10 minutes each per side, and this practice should be considered safe for “all” participants. These are the slowest classes (least vigorous) of all styles.

“after taking my 1st yoga class with you, for the 1st time in a long time. I didn’t have to take pain medication (for my back) to go to bed, and wake up from a well rested sleep. Feeling the best I have feel in years, thank you” Minoo
