This two-session class is for anyone who currently has or previously has had back pain. This gentle yoga practice will strengthen and support your back. Included in the two sessions are standing, seated, and floor postures. If you cannot get on the floor, seated options are available (and “floor” postures can be tried on your bed or couch after class). Wear loose, comfortable clothing and have a mat/towel for class if you have one.
