Yoga for a Happy Back


with Meg Gray, MSPT, RYT-500

Saturday, June 22, 2019

1-3pm

Back pain can be caused by sitting, standing, doing nothing or repetitive activities done with poor body mechanics. Back pain affects all ages and sadly, 85 percent  of the U.S. population suffers from back pain. It’s the second most common reason for seeing a doctor in the US, followed by coughs and other respiratory infections.

Yoga naturally helps strengthen and lengthen your spine and improves your back’s alignment, which can often be at the root cause of persistent back pain for those of us who sit at a desk all day.

In fact, according to a study in the Archives of Internal Medicinechronic back pain sufferers who practiced yoga on a regular basis were half as likely to need prescription pain medication or over the counter treatments for their pain as non-yogis.

In this workshop, we will review the basic functional anatomy of the spine, discussing the most common back injuries, and we will learn what yoga postures help to improve the overall health of your spine.  The workshop will conclude with an active practice focused on creating a healthier, happier back.

Meg Gray is a licensed Physical Therapist with 15 years of experience, as well as a yoga teacher.  She has treated patients of all ages, all diagnoses, in a variety of settings.  She is also available for one-on-one private lessons incorporating her physical therapy background into a custom yoga practice specific to each student's needs and goals.

June 1-2, 2019

Saturday: 1-3pm & Sunday 2: 12-2pm

The 2-part handstand workshops will turn your world upside down, giving you a new perspective on life! You'll walk away knowing the fundamentals of handstands, replacing any fear with a deep understanding of alignment and technique that will encourage you to start introducing them into your yoga practice more frequently.

Part 1 - This playful and engaging workshop is an introduction to the fundamentals of handstand. We will disassemble our fears with going upside down and deepen our awareness of anatomy, specific strength and conditioning exercises and drills, various entry and exit transitions and partner work. Through proper exploration of the safety considerations and self limiting beliefs involved with handstand, we will learn to move out of our own way and step forward in to our own power with courage.

Part 2 - In this workshop we’ll build on Part 1. It is suited for people who have attended the part 1 or more experienced handstand practitioners. We will introduce, explore and refine more challenging entry and exit transitions and handstand variations. Come with open mind and sense of humor and get ready to take your handstand practice to the next level!
