Yoga Class for Back Pain Relief
Oct 08, 2013 05:09PM
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the number one reason for missing work in the U.S. is back pain, and a major cause of back pain is inflexibility in the legs and spine. Registered Yoga Teacher, Stephanie Snyder, is offering a solution with the “Relieving Back Pain Yoga Class,” a sequence of yoga poses that safely allow one to gain flexibility in the back of the legs, learn to bend at the hips, how to twist the spine to turn without compressing the discs and more. Classes are held Mondays at 5:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. and on Wednesdays from 9:15 a.m.
“When the hamstrings in particular are tight they pull on the spine muscles for length, decreasing the flexibility of the spine and lessening the natural curve of the spine,” says Snyder. “Inflexibility of the legs and back can also cause back strain as it inhibits one from bending at the hips as we are designed to anatomically. Therefore, yoga is a powerful tool to gain flexibility and alleviate many causes of back pain.”
The Yoga with Stephanie Snyder studio is located in North Bethlehem near Wegmans. For more information, please visit YogaWithStephanieSnyder.comor call 610-867-0116.
