This is a gentle yoga class, appropriate for individuals dealing with minor limitations (some of the practice is chair optional for those unable to withstand pressure on their knees). Modifications will be provided, as needed, to address any specific limitations that might arise during the class. This class is designed to support spinal health, relieve back pain and sciatica, calm the nervous system and relax the mind.

This class will improve flexibility of the hips and shoulders, which will decrease demands on the back and allow the spine to rotate properly, as well as strengthen the muscle groups that support the spine. The stretching postures will help to increase blood flow to the tissues that support the spine, improving the health of the intervertebral discs and muscles along the spine. This class will also help to improve posture and proper alignment of the vertebrae, reducing undue stress on the back.
