Yogasana Intensive #2: Yoga for a Healthy Back

Saturday November 1 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm in Bothell

It is said that there are only two kinds of people: those that have had back pain, and those that will have back pain. The intent of this workshop is to understand the common causes of back pain, and explore preventative yoga routines that keep back pain away.
We will explore the importance of core muscles and deep spinal muscles in keeping the back healthy. Through several yoga postures, we will also highlight the relationship between the pelvis and low back. Learn how simple hip-opening routines can be remarkably efficient in keeping the back healthy.
