The Essential Low Back Yoga Program
Oct 23rd – Dec 4th, 2017
no class Nov 6th
Have you heard that viniyoga can be very helpful in reducing back pain?
Join us as we spend seven weeks strengthening and stretching the low back, building core strength and focusing on the key yogic principles of stability and ease. We’ll discuss anatomy, bring awareness to posture and reflect on habits that can help and hinder our condition.
You will learn how to do yoga on your own to care for your back. As part of this course, please plan to do a gentle home yoga practice that will support the work we do in class.
These are small classes with individual attention.
This series of classes is based on the Essential Low Back Program that was used in a National Institutes of Health study in the U.S. In the study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, 78% of participants had significant reductions in their pain levels and showed continued improvement in their condition 26 weeks later.
Please contact Melissa if you have concerns about whether or not this class is appropriate for you.
Melissa was trained by Robin Rothenberg, C-IAYT, ERYT-500, in the protocol for Essential Low Back Program, and is qualified to present this series for therapeutic purposes.

Did you know yoga is a complementary treatment to other medical healing practices? When we’re struggling with health challenges, therapeutic yoga classes are a safe way to begin moving in a caring, friendly, communal space while calming the nervous system and building resistance to stress.
These classes are beneficial for people living with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, MS, cancer as well as people healing from structural challenges such as chronic low back pain.

Description of Somatic Movement Explorations
Somatic Movement Explorations is a 3 hour class designed to experiment with our sensory perceptions. Incorporating global themes of inner to outer, mobility/stability, exertion/recuperation, and function/expression, these classes involve weight sensing, breath support, use of Bartenieff Fundamentals to explore how we organize ourselves. This is a moving meditation so you can connect deeply with yourself and understand information coming from our bodily wisdom and that of others with whom you share the world.
