Yoga for the Lower Back (The Spirit Yoga Health Series)

Yoga is an excellent therapy for healing sore and injured back muscles, reducing recovery time, and preventing re-injury. Yoga helps alleviate lower back pain by strengthening and stretching the muscles of the lower back, reducing inflammation and increasing circulation of blood and prana. For an acute phase of pain, yoga is not appropriate for 48 hours or until the acute period passes. Any movements that increase your symptoms should be avoided. It is always a good idea to seek medical advice before beginning a yoga practice to find the cause of the problem, and then work within your limits, taking precautions recommended by your specialist.

Imagine rising each morning from a peaceful sleep with a sense of freedom and elasticity in your spine, so you could go about your day with confidence, strength and joy.

This book Yoga for the Lower Back is informative & made into an easy to follow yoga class with concise instructions. Each yoga pose also has an image so you can practice with confidence, knowing that you are in correct alignment in each pose. This book also offers you a link to a FREE 12 minute Yoga for the Lower Back video clip demonstrating some of the yoga poses recommended to strengthen and support your back. There are also a couple of other video links threaded through the book showing you how to correctly practice the Mini Sun Salute and the Full Sun Salutation.

This book is part of The Spirit Yoga Health Series, which is a collection of yoga books designed to benefit a particular health concern & made into an easy to follow class. These classes mostly use traditional yoga poses and some yoga therapy exercises that are based on bringing energy (chi or prana) to the meridian channels located through-out the body. These yoga classes bring balance to your body and life so you can function with ease.

Included in this class for the Lower Back are some yoga therapy poses that help to balance the bladder and kidney which are highly beneficial to easing back pain in sufferers. According to Chinese Medicine, our bladder is not only responsible for storing and excreting the urinary waste fluids passed from our kidneys, but it is also related to the functions and balance of the autonomous nervous system. When we become stressed from our busy lifestyles and challenges, our sympathetic nervous system is over active and we then notice tension and pain along our spine. By stimulating the flow of energy along the bladder meridians, we can relieve that tension and pain.

The Author Martine Ford, is a qualified yoga instructor and owner of Spirit Yoga Australia. A former professional dancer, she has an extensive background in ballet, contemporary, character, jazz as well as numerous yoga studies.

Martine trained to Advanced Level in Power Yoga with Duncan Peak of Power Living Australia Yoga (P.L.A.Y). in the Baron Baptiste style of Power Yoga.

Jane Austin Prenatal Yoga DVD Reviews

by

Jane Austin Prenatal Yoga DVD

Jane Austin Prenatal Yoga DVD

  • 2010
  • Running Time: 1:05
  • Audio Language: English

Experience the openness and empowerment of prenatal yoga practice with Jane Austin. Designed for beginners and practitioners alike, this dynamic yoga program can be used daily to build and maintain strength and flexibility, increase energy, reduce or eliminate pregnancy discomforts, improve circulation and posture, and aid relaxation. Prenatal yoga increases body, breath and baby awareness, which helps to prepare both mind and body for labor and birth. Practiced often, it also promotes a healthy transition from pregnancy to the postpartum period.

Jane’s 60-minute session offers a range of postures that explore the balance between effort and surrender, stability and softness. As you move through the practice, Jane provides the space to listen to your body, attune to your breath, and be present with your baby. Mindful of mamas who might need more support, she demonstrates modified postures throughout the class.

Jane’s refreshing ability to “tell it like it is” to expecting moms gives this prenatal yoga session a lively, humorous, and realistic perspective unlike any other. She brings not only her expertise as a certified yoga instructor but also her experience as a midwife, doula, childbirth educator, and of course, a mother. Jane’s reverence for pregnancy and birth comes shining through as she expertly guides you on the path to prenatal health and wellness.
