You Are Here:Yoga for the Back Summer Series (June 19 – August 21)

Yoga for the Back is designed for people with back pain. Each class incorporates slow and easy transitions between postures that are safe for the back. This series focuses on not only the back but other issues that can cause back pain such as a weak core, tight hamstrings, or stiff hips. The classes are well balanced and incorporate repetition from one week to the next with some minor variations so participants can learn the postures to practice at home. Participants will need to be able to place pressure on their hands and knees as well as getting up and down off the floor comfortably.

This series runs for 10 weeks. All ten classes are included for the 10 weeks.
