This 60 minute intermediate full yin yoga class will help to relieve your lower back pain. A 2012 study in the Journal of Complementary Medicine found that yoga reduces pain, anxiety and depression and improves spinal mobility in patients with chronic lower back pain more effectively than physiotherapy exercises.
Low back pain can be caused by strain or injury, herniated discs, arthritis, illness or a spinal problem that you were born with. The pain can be dull or sharp. It can be localized or spread over a large area. You may even experience muscle spasms. If you experience sciatica, the pain can also radiate down your leg. In this yin yoga class for low back pain we will attend to the tissues of the low back and take some postures that will counteract depression. Additionally we will practice some yin yoga postures that will promote good posture which will support your low back and prevent low back pain. The relationship between low back pain and depression is understandably strong. It is depressing to be in chronic pain for any length of time.
