Learn the Reversing the Aging of the Spine Series and keep your spine young and healthy!
Using the wall without going upside down.
The Great Yoga Wall is one of the finest tools that can help yoga practitioners experience the postures in a completely new way for more length and flexibility. Probably one of the greatest gifts of the yoga wall is the ability to hang in traction and unweight all of the pressure on the discs and nerves in the back and neck.
With the yoga wall, you can experience a sense of length that you may not be able to do on your own. In this course, I will demonstrate techniques on the yoga wall that are designed to nourish and heal the spine and neck.
I will share the most common techniques that help individuals who have lower back pain, sciatica, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, scoliosis and neck pain.
I hope you enjoy!
