Yoga For Posture & Back Pain

Most of us are desk jockeys for a significant portion of our day. Unfortunately our bodies haven’t quite evolved to this level of sitting.

Add in a good measure of stress, tension and hours of using a computer, and some level of back pain is almost unavoidable. Leaning in to your computer screen is also a recipe for slouching, poor posture and further back pain.

Hot Power Yoga will stretch and help release the muscles around the spine, shoulders and back in general - introducing lots of healthy oxygenated blood flow and removing toxins that have been trapped in tense, rigid muscles.

Practicing yoga will also help strengthen both your core and back muscles so your back is more supported and able to cope with the ravages of modern desk life.

We’ll also help you discover how to use the muscles of your core (we call them bandhas) and even your legs, to relieve certain types of back pain and to protect your back whilst in poses.


And, you might even find you grow a little bit taller ;)


Check out this excerpt from a trial on treating back pain with yoga. The conclusion: "Offering a 12-week yoga program to adults with chronic or recurrent low back pain led to greater improvements in back function than did usual care."
