Yoga for a Healthy Spine

January 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| $45
Terry Schaff Healthy Spine Workshop

This workshop is designed to help you regain spinal alignment, postural re-education, muscle tone and flexibility, and abdominal strength, while cultivating a peaceful connection between your body and mind. The yoga poses that we will focus on will open up restricted joints, stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak ones, while breath work and relaxation exercises will help you to feel grounded, rejuvenated, and refreshed.

Learn ways to keep your spine healthy – learn the yoga poses to practice if you have spinal stenosis, herniated disks in your lower back or neck, degenerative disk disease, spinal arthritis, osteoporosis of the spine, sacroiliac joint issues, sciatica, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, hyper-kyphosis and hyper-lordosis and the poses to avoid aggravating these conditions.

This workshop based on a series of 6-week yoga classes taught by Terry at Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation to people with neck, back and hip issues related to the spine.
