This series is for those looking for some support or relief for the low back. This series will look at: the neurologic inputs to help regulate pain, muscular support & stability, connective tissue health, functional core support, myofascial release and down-regulation of stress. This first practice focuses on neuro-regulation and subtle support for the low back. This series can be used more preventatively or as an adjunct to traditional care for low back pain. For those not experiencing pain you can progress through the series at your own pace, we recommend repeating each class until it’s easy and then moving on through the progression. For those more dedicated to feeling better or working with discomfort, we recommend repeating daily or every other day and taking at least one day off a week. This series is meant to be done as a progression, repeat level 1 classes until it feels easy, then move on to level 2. This usually take weeks or months so don’t be in a hurry. Most importantly move slow enough that you can adjust and adapt as needed & listen to your unique body’s needs as you go. If you feel any pain, back off until it goes away and only go as far as you can without pain. If you’re unable to do a pose without pain, then skip it and rest on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floor until the next pose. This practice is not intended to replace medical care or physiotherapy, please consult with your healthcare provider before engaging in a new program like this when dealing with pain. If you’re working with persistent pain, we always recommend working one-on-one with a Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist to individualize the practice to your unique needs. We have a large resource of highly trained teachers on our site to support you. All you need for this class is 2 myofascial balls (or tennis balls) and a pen. For savasana you can also grab a bolster, blanket & block (or you can use a large bath towel and 2 firm pillows).
