back care

yoga for back care

Sedentary life styles, poor posture, obesity, stress, limited ranges of motion in the hips and shoulder joints, and normal wear associated with aging leaves us at risk for back problems, which can eventually involve the whole body and are not merely caused by weak abdominal or lumbar muscles. Through specific sequences of yoga poses designed to develop flexibility and strength in the muscles and the spine, each individual can maintain a healthy back and prevent future back pain.

Private sessions are available, please call or email.

What people are saying...

"I have been practicing yoga for many years. Much to my surprise I encountered a jewel of a yoga instructor at the Community Education and Services program in my local school district. Andrea brings another dimension to my yoga practice. In her warm and compassionate way we are encouraged to explore our own limits. Whether it is in a group of 16 or 6, Andrea has the talent to tap into everyone’s individual needs. She has created a relaxed, zen-like atmosphere in her home studio which makes additional sessions most enjoyable. It is apparent that Andrea is well-trained. In her supportive ways she makes every session a rewarding experience. The most difficult part of my yoga sessions with Andrea is leaving. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from such a master. It is a pleasure and an honor to attend her class." Susan S.
