• Yoga for Back Pain and Core Strengthening
    with Megan Davis

    Lower back pain is one of the most common injuries/complaints.  Much of our low back pain comes from poor posture and misuse/overuse of particular muscles through unbalanced and repetitive motion.

    In this 4 part series, we will focus on:

    • using the feet and the legs to activate core stability muscles
    • aligning and strengthening the core stability muscles to support the lower back
    • stretching muscles to decompress the lumbar spine

    This class is appropriate for students of all levels. Students with injuries are welcome and modifications will be given.
