How to Ease the Back Pain. Shh! You Need to Know. It’s Yoga.

How To Ease Back Pain. You Need To Know. It’s Yoga…

The economy is in the dumps. Gas prices continue to shoot upwards. Your kids may be off from school and driving you up the wall.

It’s summer, very nearly fall time. It used to be vacation time. If only you can take a vacation from stress.

Now you can. Right now while you read this post.

Sit up straight and take a deeper breathe than you normally do. Hold it for a second or two, and let the air out with a sigh. Go ahead. No one will notice.

Now, do it again. Take a deeper breathe than before. Hold it for a moment or two and just… let … it … go.

Most people tend to breathe very shallow in their chest. Shallow breathing promotes stress and tension. Deep breathing melts it away.

In a few minutes of deep breathing, you can actually eliminate all stress and tension, lower your blood pressure, and instantly gain a lot more positive attitude.

My name is Gail Pickens-Barger and I teach yoga in Nederland, Texas. Forget what you’ve heard about yoga. You do not have to twist yourself into a pretzel to do yoga. It’s for everyone. Whether you are in shape or not.

And the benefits are immediate.

It’s the start of a new school year, so this is the best time to get started eliminating your stress with yoga.

Come to my Monday night Yoga Class at 6:15 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church, starting Monday, October 15th, 2018 and I’ll show you some simple techniques that will eliminate your stress. And with continued yoga practice, your stress will be gone for good.
Come visit my website at yogawithgaileee.com or my blog at yogawithgaileee.blogspot.com or pick up the phone and call me at 409-727-3177.

Modified Sun Salutes for Yoga in Nederland, Texas

Modified Sun Salutes for Yoga in Nederland, Texas – with Yoga Teacher, Gail Pickens-Barger

Lately I’ve been posting a lot in my private facebook group Yoga for Pacemakers & ICDS about modified versions of the Salute to the Sun.  Thought I’d share with you the sequences!

Part of the challenge is to slowly come down to the floor from modified plank to cobra or sphinx.  Engaging the chest muscles with an implanted device is somewhat challenging!  As always keep it between easy and the ouch!  My older daughter demonstrating the sequences!

Come to my Beginning Yoga classes at Wesley UMC in Nederland, Texas.  Mondays at 6:15 pm and Thursdays at 10 am.  Also search on facebook “Yoga for Pacemakers” to join the group.
