Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care

Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care

I’ve got back pain.  Yoga teacher too.  Turns out some of my yoga poses that I would regularly do, was making my issues with my spine worse!

So I went on a journey to learn more about my back.  Turns out my spine curves doubled over these past 8 years!  Also have a weak multifidus back core muscle.

Went to work!  Strengthening my multifidus through various exercises and yoga poses.  Plus intelligently strengthen and stretch the muscles in my spine, core, behind, etc.

Becoming a Gentle Yoga specialist for Low Back Care.  Here are some studies to support that yoga eases back pain.
