Yoga for Back Pain

Yin & Somatics:

Getting to Know Your Back

Many who have back pain believe that their spine is unstable. There is a distinct feeling of instability and vulnerability in the back that is reinforced by confusing or misleading messages coming from popular culture and even medical professionals. Current research shows however not that people with back pain are not unstable, but too stiff! In this short practice we will gently explore that stiffness and seek to restore subtilty and differentiation to the movements of the back, especially the spine and ribs.

This is the second episode in a short series “Getting to Know Your Back”. You are free to take the classes in any order.
