Healing Yoga for Back and Neck Pain

A 6-Week Workshop

If your back is chronically tense and tight and if the muscles in your neck and shoulders often feel as hard as a rock, you’re not alone. In our high-stress, sedentary, 24/7 world, back and neck pain are a major cause of disability.

Join Instructor Carol Krucoff to learn a simple, effective yoga practice designed to relieve back and neck pain, plus strategies to help enhance overall health. Each 90-minute class will include a short educational component, plus a complete yoga practice including stress-reduction techniques and relaxation. The gentle yoga practice will teach you proper sitting and standing posture, and will also focus on releasing tension, stretching and strengthening your body, relaxing your mind and lifting your spirit. No yoga experience required.
