Postural Health

Geenie Celento

This class works to relieve low back pain and improve posture. Side sleeping, screen time, and day to day life can close specific lines of the body which leads to low back pain, poor posture, and loss of mobility.

Designed to be both therapeutic and to improve muscular balance. This class opens key reflective points within the body to support back/shoulder mobility and to release: upper back knots, low back lateral 'pulling', tightness across chest and front of the hips.

Recommended to be done daily - few times a week to improve posture, shoulder mobility, and support hip opening. Practice with my video, Evolutions of flow-Seat of Health for a healthy back and hips.

Healthy Backs: Nurturing Hope Through Backbends

Kristin Gibowicz

"We practice to nourish our hope — our hope for a more settled mind, a more stable breath, a more compassionate heart. Our practice feeds our hope, and our hope feeds our practice. In fact, our practice is hope in action." Judith Hanson Lasater

What does embodied hope look like? Is life weighing you down or are you walking with your head high and with an open heart full of hope. This practice incorporates nourishing backbends like sphinx, floor blow and even an opportunity to cultivate Ardha Chandra Chapasana (half-moon bow pose). Backbends energize and help us counter and strengthen our modern and chronic postural patterns. You can take this slow or customize with vinyasa transitions to build heat.

Strengthen, Protect & Heal the Lower Back

Desiree Rumbaugh

We all have habits and some are better than others. If you have chronic back pain anytime during the day or in your practice, check your posture. It can be that simple and yet it will take some work to change. In this class we will be working to change our patterns using strength as well as myo-fascial release to create new ways of moving. If you experience back pain during this class, ask yourself if it feels like injury pain or just stiffness. With stiffness it is common to have some "discomfort" when doing cat cow or lying over a block. The integration of abdominal strength with any kind of backbending exercise will ultimately relieve the pain. Get ready for a new lower back experience!
