Did you know, that lower back pain is one of the most common ailments that adults have in the United States?
In fact, if it wasn’t for the common cold, lower back pain would easily be the biggest complaint that most adults have.
At least that is what Barb Lear told us on Friday, May 11th 2012 during the initial parts of her Restorative Yoga class at Yoga Pura.
And I really don’t know just what you’re thinking now, but you could sense how everyone in class was ready and willing to explore postures used to help with lower back pain issues.
In much the same way, I also appreciated when Barb introduced us to and allowed us to explore a modified version of Uttanasana or Standing Forward Bend using a chair.
Believe it or not, Uttanasana is one of the more challenging postures for me to get into. Especially, when I’m practicing at home and have a tendency to stay in postures for a fairly significant amount of time.
To the same extent, I also found myself releasing and letting go of so much unresolved tension in many of the fully supported postures that we held for an extended period of time.
Letting go and relaxing into each posture felt so good and at the same time never seemed to last long enough.
Each and every posture felt so juicy and tasted so delicious that when Barb invited us to slowly move out of the posture. I found myself, lingering in the pose just a bit longer and getting just a bit more from the experience.
By the way, remember that throughout this entire practice and experience of Restorative Yoga, Barb is gently guiding you through this process with her soothing and melodious voice.
In the end, you can discover just how easy it is to relax and renew with the practice of Restorative Yoga as well.
It couldn’t be easier, all you have to do is make time on Friday nights to arrive at Yoga Pura before 6pm and then relax and enjoy.
It’s that simple!
Big Love Always,
