Therapeutic Yoga for Lower Back Pain

Join Libby Hinsley, PT and Yoga Therapist, for two half-day workshops on therapeutic yoga.

In the morning session, we will explore common causes of low back pain, and then experience a practice designed to be therapeutic for the low back, hips, and pelvis. There will be plenty of time for questions about specific practice modifications for a variety of diagnoses affecting the low back, and ample discussion on using yoga practices to support greater ease, comfort, and healing to people with low back pain.
