Workshop Description:

Exercises for lower back pain

In this workshop we will explore the common causes of lower back pain and how to assess some of the more important risk factors for you and your students with 3 simple tests.
After assessing we will move on to building a 10 minute back strengthening protocol that will decompress the spine enabling you to enjoy the activities that keep you young and active. This workshop is ideal for Yoga and Pilates teachers as well as fitness professionals who work with clients looking to improve pain free movement. The exercises will be both mobility and stability based with a focus on pelvic control and hip mobility.

Active Alignment

This exercise program has been designed to tighten up the postural muscles that weaken from long periods of sitting. Daily repetition of this series of body weight movements builds strength and restores function to the stabilizing muscles that keep us straight and tall. Over time, as the hips and shoulder joints become supported and stable, pressure is released from the spine enabling the body to flow in pain free movement.
