This workshop is inspired by Boston Medical Center's "Back to Health" program, designed as a clinical trial assessing the use of yoga as a treatment modality. Published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, Boston Medical Center (BMC) researchers found that yoga classes for chronic low back pain were effective in reducing pain, improving function, and lowering the need for pain medication among the study participants.
We welcome you to participate in this workshop at Evolve. This gentle class is friendly for those who are new to yoga, as well as those with an experienced practice who wish to focus on basic alignment and spinal health. Our instructor, Kirsten Huffman, will guide participants through yoga postures that gradually build on knowledge acquired in previous workshops. the workshop is more extensive than our Yoga for Back Pain class, and each workshop will be tailored towards the specific and unique needs of participants on that day. Focusing on the fundamentals of alignment and form, we invite participants to a deeper understanding of their body, and access to the life-long tools that yoga offers.
