Healthy Back Mini-Series w/ Naomi Gottlieb-Miller

Fridays, 4/25/14, 5/16/14 and 6/6/14, 7:00-8:15 pm

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 class series 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.

Each of the 3 weeks will focus on a different area for strengthening and supporting the low back.

Week 1: Find the Midline~Learning to Use Your Legs to Support Your Lower Back

Week 2: Strength and Length~Accessing the Hamstrings and Quads for Optimal Lower Back Health

Week 3: Core Power~Awaken Your Abs to Create Greater Back Strength

This series is appropriate for all levels. The intent of this series is to give tools to yogis who have struggled in yoga due to lower back pain, as well as reintroduce yoga to those who have taken a break from their yoga practice as a result of lower back pain or injury. Ideally this series will offer confidence to students looking to regain access to their bodies by creating healthier patterns and actions. This series should also serve as an opportunity for injured students to learn how to practice yoga safely in a public class or at home, respective to their low back impairment.

You can sign up for all 3 Fridays or attend as your schedule allows.
