Yoga for Low Back Pain

Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.

~B.K.S. Iyengar


Welcome yogis to Yoga for Low Back Pain. It’s unfortunate you are here, as back pain is not fun, but let me assure you there is hope. Trust me, I know where you are!

As a sufferer of chronic low back pain myself, with 5 bulging discs and scoliosis, Yoga for Low Back Pain was born out of a passion to share what has worked for me. My personal experience with chronic low back pain combined with my 10 year career in Rehabilitation (working alongside some of the top specialists in the country) has certainly taught me a thing or two when it comes to managing back pain and strengthening the back.

Low back pain is becoming increasingly common in today’s day and age. Living sedentary lives, sitting at computer desks for much of the day, hunched over mobile phones, and long commutes to and from work are just some examples for why low back pain is on the rise. And unfortunately, it is likely most of us have or will experience low back pain at some point in our lives. So let’s get excited about introducing some preventative and healing steps forward to better manage low back pain.

While severe back pain should always be examined by a doctor, chronic and moderate-level back pain can often be assisted with a regular yoga practice. Yoga can be extremely beneficial in naturally strengthening and lengthening your spine, stretching your muscles, and improving your back’s alignment, which can often be a root cause of persistent back pain.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Yoga for Low Back Pain is a 90-minute workshop introducing you a to carefully designed yoga sequence that will aid your recovery and alleviate symptoms of back pain. We will also touch upon basic anatomy to help you understand why, where and how the low back can get injured, and how to prevent further injury in your yoga practice and day to day activities.

All students will also receive access to an online portal containing images and descriptions of all the poses you will learn in class to make sure you can maintain a daily practice at home for long term benefit and well-being.

Finally…

There is hope that you can return to a life without pain (or at the very least, better manage the pain). You may not believe it right now, but I assure there is hope. With the right ingredients (aka poses), clear expectations and a good understanding of why your body feels as it does, you will be on the path to recovery in no time.

If you’re ready to take the next step in your journey, then I warmly invite you to join me on the mat.

With love, support and a reminder you are not alone, you’ll already begin to feel better.
