The Yoga for Back Care class is designed to relieve pain, help prevent back problems from worsening and enable you to build strength and confidence.
Whether you have a diagnosed condition or are amongst the large number of adults who experience generalised back pain with no obvious cause, Yoga can help.
Back pain can have a huge impact on your ability to participate fully in the activities you enjoy. You may have stopped doing many things because of a fear of making it worse. Many people find it affects their work, family life and their ability to exercise or be active.
Long term back problems can also affect your mood and stress levels.
Attending a regular yoga class is an effective way to prevent back pain. However, once back pain has begun, you might find certain movements trigger your pain and it may be difficult to know how to manage this. You may find yourself becoming less active as a result.
This specialised class can help you understand what you can do for your own body and will teach you how to modify the movements in a healthy, enjoyable way.
The session includes therapeutic stretches and strengthening postures to ease different types of back pain, flowing movements designed to relieve stress (which often accompanies or triggers back pain), and breathing exercises which calm the mind.
