Yoga Workshop

The first structure that forms in an embryo is the spine from which all other structures gain form.
The spine is of great importance.

EFFECTS
The effect of having a sore back does not only cause pain, discomfort and is de habilitating it also has an effect on your health. It shifts your nervous system into a sympathetic mode that means stress, on your heart and other organs. This activates your adrenals which are probably already under physical stress being compressed from poor posture putting further pressure on your kidneys draining your vital energy. This tension puts pressure on the vertebrae bodies leading to chronic spine degeneration. Pain in your back affects every facet of your being leading to a suppressed immune system.
When was the last time you awoke feeling vitalized & energetic?

BENEFITS
Yoga is unique in its ability to heal and restore the full function of the back by strengthening and stretching the muscles supporting the structure of the back, reducing inflammation and increasing circulation of body fluids and prana.
