Personal Practice of Yoga – It’s all good!

Personal Practice of Yoga — It’s all good

So my yoga practice has changed a bit, these past 4 years.

#beginnersyoga #easebackpain

#easebackpain with #beginnersyoga

I was vigorously practicing the 12 yoga poses for easing osteopenia/osteoporosis, but still experiencing back pain.

Upon the advise of my MD Anderson Women’s Care doctor, she suggested that I go back to my primary physician and get xrays done to start to figure out what is going on with my back pain.

Well, turns out I have scoliosis.  Got me thinking, what was my xrays back in 2010 telling me from my chiro visits.  Got another baseline done, and yup, my curves have increased.  No wonder I have pain.

Back to yoga.  Apparently practicing the same of both sides is aggravating my challenged side.

So investigating into this, books, internet, etc.  Found YogaBerry in the UK, and took her yoga teacher training for scoliosis, and recently did a group webinar with 4 other people to practice yoga with regards to our specific curves.

Let me tell you,

I’m in less pain.  Also work with at PT to strengthen my multifidus deeeeeep back muscle and my transverse abdominus. Yes, a lot of what I’m doing is yoga, but we are targeting to my needs of my back.

WOW!  Its working!

Yoga for easing back pain.  I’m an example!

See you in Beginners Yoga folks!

One of the flyers I pass out to my Beginners Yoga class.  All of these poses have modifications, especially if there are lack of flexibility challenges, and people wanting to use the chair to assist down to the floor.  Adaptive Beginning Yoga to help you gain your wellness goals!  Gail Pickens-Barger, 409-727-3177

Depicted here are the kids version of the Salute to the Sun.  Typically kids and young adults have the ability to do yoga poses with little or no modification.  But, usually these groups do not have the awareness of their bodies, and as a teacher, you should still coach them to be aware of alignment, posture, and placement for a good overall safe yoga practice.  Go YogaKiddos!

Sequence of poses for the salute to the sun with additionally demonstrating Warrior I, Reverse Warrior and Side Angle Pose.  All done at the Beginner Level to help you toward your wellness goals.  Even on the chair there are Advance, Intermediate and Beginning versions of poses.

Call Gail Pickens-Barger, Experienced Beginning Adaptive Yoga Teacher.  If you don’t like my classes, or the fit isn’t just right, I will find you a class or teacher to help you on your path to your wellness goals.  409-727-3177.  Thank you!
