We explore functional, safe yoga methods for preventing, reducing and often eliminating low-back and hip pain. We will explore embodied anatomy, or how your body feels and functions from the inside out. We will gain a better understanding of how the body works and how to support it with simple yet powerful techniques, including deep breathing to improve core stability, therapeutic exercises to address and prevent pain, and how to hold better posture in daily activities. Activities fee: $30 will be collected at Training Partners on the first day.
