Yoga For Back Care

  • Shunya Yoga Studio Kings Grant, West Main Rd. Portsmouth, RI (map)



This class will help decompress your spine, increase mobility, and relax your mind. You will move through postures that elongate your spine, as well as postures that open your chest, shoulders, neck, and hips. Classical yoga poses can help you restore and maintain a healthy back, relieve muscle tension, nerve pain, and reduce mental stress often associated with back problems. Yoga offers a well- rounded approach to improving core strength and flexibility and breath awareness. Students will also learn how to modify the poses to meet their individual needs. Some of the benefits are:


   relieve  muscle tension and nerve pain

   increase  flexibility in the back and hips

   give  the spine adequate support

   improve  posture and alignment


You will develop tools to achieve pain relief, relax and reduce tension associated with chronic pain, and restore the natural posture of your back. The class will be gentle and therapeutic by nature and open to all levels of practitioner.
