Sept. 24th: Starting a Yoga Practice to Promote Healing
Come to 1, 2, or all 3 of these classes focusing on low back care in yoga!
Sept. 10th – Strength and Flexibility Through Yoga: Some mobility needed, no yoga experience necessary. If you’ve noticed that low back pain has begun to affect one or more of your activities of daily living- like work, transportation, recreation, and/or household chores- then this class is for you! We will mindfully build strength and increase/introduce flexibility in the back and core that can contribute to spinal health and decrease pain.
Sept. 17th – Self-Adjustments/Self-Modifications for Vinyasa-style Classes: Mobility needed, no yoga experience necessary. In this class, we will flow through poses that are common in a vinyasa style yoga class and learn ways to adjust both the movement and poses to suit your low back needs.
Sept. 24th – Starting a Yoga Practice To Promote Healing: This class will be information and demonstration focused for those who are curious about yoga’s effects on low back pain, with light and optional movement intended to bring awareness to your range of motion. After this class you will know how to start a yoga practice that suits your immediate and long term needs.
Instructor — Janet Comer
Janet Comer strives to provide a safe space and support for your mind-body exactly as it is.
In Janet’s words: “As an imperfect yogi myself, I incorporate humor, humility, and peacefulness in my classes. I am a graduate of Sellwood Yoga’s 200 Hour Teacher Training Program and a family counselor who understands that relationships, including the one we have with our body, benefit from positive support.”
“Yoga gifted me with pain relief, injury recovery, and prevention. It helped me truly attune to my body for the first time, and has even helped me find comfort in my body and my mind – my ‘mindbody’ – when I am off the mat and in the world. Yoga welcomed my imperfections, my genuine heart, and was patient with my progress. I hope to share the same nurturing in my classes. I welcome you to join me whether you are a first timer or an old timer. Let’s be imperfect yogis together.”
