In this workshop, participants can expect to learn skills and practices to use to support ourselves as caregivers and maintain a healthy emotional balance and mental perspective. This workshop is designed to help caregivers nurture their own needs and gain ideas for how to refuel, re-energize and get centered.

Yoga for a Strong, Healthy Low Back w/ Naomi – 2/23

Low back pain is one of the most common complaints these days among yogis and non-yogis alike. Sometimes back pain is a symptom of too many hours seated and sedentary; other times unsupportive repetitive patterns can contribute to back pain. Even yoga, when done with less mindful alignment can wreak havoc on our backs.

This workshop is here to help.

Learn the ways that your yoga practice can support your low back, through specific poses designed to help relieve low back pain as well as strengthen an unstable spine. Using some basic, but essential actions to create healthier alignment in your legs and hips, you’ll offer your spine the optimal circumstances for freedom. You’ll also be given tools to take this healing and strengthening practice into your everyday activities.
