YOGA FOR THE SPINE
The spine is one of the most important parts of your body
It gives your body structure, support and mobility
The support allows you to stand, walk and lift. Mobility allows movements such as
turning, twisting and bending
The spine is also designed to protect your spinal cord.
The spinal cord is a column of nerves that connects your brain to the rest of your
The shape of the spine resembles the letter “S”
This characteristic outline allows us to move around on two legs, to maintain an
upright posture and body balance.
The spine is made up of 33 - 34 vertebrae and intervertebral discs and is divided
into 5 sections
Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar, Sacral and Coccyx
The class “Yoga for Spine” is aimed to strengthen the spine and to work on its flexibility
We practice asanas that focus on the four basic movements of the spine:
Forward bends, Back bends, Lateral bends and Rotation.
This simple rule of four movements will not only keep your spine in good health,
but will also reduce or eliminate inherent problems, such as back pain.
Classes are designed for those who wish to improve the condition of the spine and/or
those who suffer from spinal issues.
