This back care workshop is designed for yoga teachers and students to create a holistic yoga class or personal practice by incorporating alignment based postures, breath work and meditation. Attention is given to posture sequences that lengthen and gently strengthen the muscles needed to support daily, pain free movement. Meditation and breath work are included to release stress-related tension in the body and mind.
Yoga Alliance teachers can receive 2 hours of Continuing Education credit. This workshop is one hour of lecture/discussion and a one hour yoga practice. Props we will be using for class: 2 blocks, big bolster, and blanket or cushion for sitting. Props are provided, but feel free to bring your own.
