Yoga for Back Care

Yoga for Back Care

Are you suffering from back pain?

Has your doctor suggested you join a yoga class?

If so, this series of yoga for back care classes is for you.

Our increasingly sedentary lives have contributed greatly to the back pain epidemic spreading across the Western world and it now affects 8 out of 10 of us at some point during our lives.

Join us for this series of classes each Saturday to improve your understanding of your anatomy and make lasting improvements to your posture and movement.  During each class, we'll explore approaches to strength and mobility to help change your experience of movement in both yoga and everyday life.

Yoga for Back Care offers an insight into how and why we experience pain and offers a simple programme of movement to support you in learning to soothe and settle your back, building strength and confidence.

Each class will end with restorative postures to alleviate any discomfort, promoting self-repair and healing.

You’re welcome to attend all classes as a block or drop in on a weekly basis.   If you’d prefer to book individual classes, please click here to book.

During the back care classes we will work together to:

* Gently mobilize our joints thereby promoting the natural healing mechanism of the body

* Build awareness of our natural movement patterns and how they may affect our ability to move with ease

* Look at our posture and how we move in our daily lives

* Relax tense muscles to enhance restorative blood flow

* Develop strength, coordination and stability to help us move with confidence

* Challenge our beliefs about pain, weakness and damage

* Reassess our understanding of our bodies as vulnerable and discover the innate resilience of our structure

* Reconnect and restore flexibility and joy in movement

Yoga for Back Care

These back care classes are suitable for anyone with neck and shoulder discomfort, lower back pain, sciatica, sacroiliac issues and general or chronic back pain.  Anyone suffering from severe or acute disc injury is encouraged to seek the help of a qualified physiotherapist or osteopath before embarking on a course of yoga.
