"From a yogic perspective, other factors are important, too (to back pain). Beyond stress, emotions like anger and dissatisfaction, yoga links back pain to posture, muscle tightness, and muscle weakness, as well as to a lack of body awareness - all issues that yoga is effective in addressing." (Yoga as Medicine, Dr. Timothy McCall, p.190)
Suitable for people with chronic back issues including low back pain, osteoporosis, arthritis and sciatica. The focus is on building strength and flexibility to support a healthy back.
