Back to Health: Relief for Chronic Low Back Pain with Susi Wingenroth Next held on Wed, Sep 20, 2017 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Wed Aug 30, 2017 - Wed Nov 15, 2017
Do you have chronic low back pain? Relief may be available through yoga. Yoga has proven effective, more effective than medication, for treating chronic low back pain. In this twelve week series, based on a protocol developed and studied by the Boston Medical Center, you will learn accessible yoga postures carefully sequenced to support relief of back pain. The series is geared for people who have done little or no yoga before. We begin with very basic poses, gradually adding poses that build strength and flexibility in the muscles of the spine to achieve better functioning and reduction of pain. Participants are encouraged to practice 30 minutes at home on days when class does not meet. We will provide you with detailed course materials for home practice.
($200 for 12 week series)
