These two yoga sessions are for anyone who has or has had back pain. This is a gentle yoga practice using posture to strengthen and support your back. First session will be done standing and with chairs, second session will be on the floor. If you cannot get on the floor this posture can be done at home in a bed. A handout will be provided to help maintain a healthy practice at home to reduce and prevent back pain. This is not suitable for those with severe, acute back pain. Limited enrollment.
