Yoga for a Happy Back
with Meg Gray, MSPT, RYT-500

Saturday, Aug 25, 2018
1-3pm

Back pain can be caused by sitting, standing, doing nothing or repetitive activities done with poor body mechanics.  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 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.

Yoga for a Happy Back


with Meg Gray, MSPT, RYT-500

Saturday, August 25, 2018

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.

$50 ||  *Early Bird:  $40 through 8.11.18
