Back Therapeutics Workshop 
Saturday March 30th 9:30 – 12:00 pm Cost $49
Instructor: Renee Reusz

Do you want to better understand where your back pain comes from and take the control back to manage it better on your own? This requires an understanding of your own body in relationship to the structural anomalies, posture imbalances, and mechanical irritants within and around you. As you learn more about how your body’s anatomy, imbalances, and activities affect your function and cause you pain, you’ll better understand what you need to do for yourself, and what you need to minimize or avoid to heal yourself.

Within this workshop you will learn about:

  • posture and alignment imbalances which place stress on the spine and cause pain/injury
  • body movement dysfunctions due to range of motion deficits, lack of stability/core strength, and poor awareness of body mechanics
  • common back conditions—do’s and don’ts
  • a mini assessment of your posture, ROM, and core strength to understand your limitations 
  • the cycle of pain which inhibits motion, and how yoga can break this complex cycle
  • a take home program of a few key postures and exercises which will be helpful for your individual situation
