February Series: Love Your Lumbar
2/1, 2/8, 2/15, 2/22, 2/29
$12/class or $50/month

This month’s practice focuses on the opening the lumbar spine while strengthening. We will continue Therapeutic Pelvic Bowl Breathing and add poses that use traction to support opening the low back. Tractioning the spine brings “juice” to the lumbar discs, nourishing them and inviting them back into health, alleviating tension and pain.
