This is the perfect antidote for weak, weary backs. This yoga class focuses on three movement categories to improve back health. Strengthening and extending the back muscles will enhance alignment and stability. Gentle twists and supported forward bends will lengthen shortened muscles. And mobilizing the shoulder girdle and softening around the heart will help you breath more deeply and reduce tension. Note: If you have any existing medical conditions, you must provide physician approval to take this class.
