Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care with Gail

WEDNESDAYS at 1 PM CST – Join VYP yoga teacher, Gail Pickens-Barger, for a 60 minute gentle yoga practice for easing back pain. Gail incorporates all five mind-body tools of VYP Mindful Resilience: Breathing, Meditation, Mindful Movement, Guided Rest, and Gratitude.

These tools help us breathe easy, focus clearly, move freely, rest deeply, and remember what is working in our lives. As a result, we become more resilient in the face of both ordinary and extraordinary challenges.

To help ease any regulars into classes, please invite them to
A) create a MindBodyOnline account with us,
B) visit the Classes page on our VYP website to see an integrated look at what we are offering online both daily and weekly, and/or
C) stayed tuned online with us through social media for announcements.

I bend, so I don’t break. Get moving!

I bend, so I don’t break. Get moving!

I bend so I don’t break.

I bend, so I don’t break. What about you?

So true. If you rest, you will tend to rust. When I taught yoga in Victoria Texas, I had 6 people come to my gentle yoga class that had fibromyalgia.

They told me they hurt if they don’t come, they hurt if they do come to yoga. But the hurt coming out of yoga was of a lot of body relief. They craved coming to class. I think that is because yoga not only works on the body, but the mind, and of easing of pain for some, and getting better sleep.

I think about that class that I had in V-town a lot because that was early on in my yoga career, and I just was a bit confused by their comments about different types of pain.

Now after teaching for over 20 years, it makes a lot of sense to me, as I am now inhabiting my body with levels of pain issues. Oh, if I don’t move, move move, it is big time hurt city. I still hurt, but pain levels between 7-9, now regularly sit between 1-3. That is significant to me.

What about you?

I invite you to come to my #freeyoga class held on #mindbody sponsored by the Veterans Yoga Project I’ve got the link below. Be sure to sign up at least an hour maybe two before your first class, so that you get the verification email in time to do class. You’ll get an email link to come into the class 30 minutes prior.

Gentle Yoga for Low Back Pain is what I teach. 60 minutes beginner-level class.

Yeah, you don’t have to bend like a pretzel or touch your toes to get massive health benefits from a regular yoga practice.

Comments? Complaints? Questions? Complements? I want to know!
