Low Back Love
All Home Practices • 16-Jun-2020
At one time or another, just about everyone has experienced low back pain due to overuse, underuse, strain or stress.
I created this home practice to support you in gently moving your spine in every direction, to stretch and strengthen the muscles that do that and to bring awareness to abdominal activation to support our lower backs from the frontside.
The pace and vibe of this practice is mellow and mindful so we can also address the energetics of back pain too which may include spending more time than you'd like in the freeze, fight or flight response. Our bodies and minds heal when we are in the rest and relax mode.
Suggested props are two blocks, a blanket and a strap.
If you're experiencing chronic and not just intermittent mild back pain, if the sensations are sharp or shooting or the pain just generally persists, please see a medical professional to give you some insights. Sometimes things like yoga, which seem generally good, could still make it worse depending on the source or cause of your back pain.
