Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care with Gail

WEDNESDAYS at 12:30 PM CST – Join VYP yoga teacher, Gail Pickens-Barger, for 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 easily, 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 Wellness Living 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.

Questions? Complaints? Comments? Complements? Let me know.

If you have chronic neck or back pain…

If you carry stress in your neck and shoulders (not that any of us do…!)

If you wake up feeling listless and sore, wondering what is going on with your body anyway…

Discover the natural, safe, and enjoyable way to get relief from the above, as well as achieve the following benefits:

…cope better with stress, both daily annoyances and monumental life changes.

…feel happier and more energized.

…increase physical strength and flexibility, no matter what your age or physical condition.

…feel more creative – and like you have more time for your creative projects.

…feel relaxed and at-ease in your body and in your life.

People you know may be amazed at the transformation in you.

They’ll want to know the secret.

It’s not a pill…or a drink….

In fact, it’s not a gimmick at all.

It’s just that you’ve discovered the ancient secret that has relieved pain and stress for millions of people.

It’s yoga.

You may have a picture of yoga as a bunch of hyper-thin women doing crazy bendy pretzel poses in tight clothing.

Nope.

Physical yoga is instead a combination of physical stretching, strengthening and toning poses, breathing techniques, and deep relaxation practices that are accessible to everyone and every-body.

It’s a system of healing the body that has worked for thousands of years.

You’ll feel the benefits after just a few sessions. Sessions are available either in a class setting or privately in your own home, whichever is a better fit for your lifestyle.

Chair Yoga Fitness with Gail P-B.

Chair Yoga Fitness - Gail Pickens-Barger

A demonstration of Warrior II posture seated on the chair with dynamic tension running from the hips through the soles of the feet. Contraction of the shoulder blades towards the spine, helps to strengthen the upper back, while a mild twist over the leg toward the front to the chair engages the core in an oh, so interesting way.

We occasionally do some of our warrior postures seated upon the chair, for a bit of variety. On this day, twenty-two of us proceeded to do seated spinal balance, warrior II, reverse warrior, and extended side angle. Sometimes we do these postures also standing, with the chair in front of us. Love using the chair as a yoga prop. Chair Yoga Fitness with Gail P-B.
