Back Care Workshop

Back Care Workshop

*Space Still Available*

Sunday, July 27 from 1-3 pm with Silica & Sarah Oliver

This will be a full-body experience blending directed effort, release, and attention to bring us closer to full, healthy functioning in the spine. The spine is our central point, the basis for everything we do in our bodies, but we can become disconnected to it in one or multiple areas, manifesting as pain/restriction in the spine itself, or in the major joint areas–hips and shoulders.

Join Southern Om teachers Sarah Oliver and Silica Larkin as we explore the 5 principles of re-engagement and awakening of the spine and the relationship of major joints to the spine for maximum suppleness, health, power, and ease.

Equipment needed: yoga mat, towel and water. Cost is $25.  Appropriate for yogis at all levels.

Sign up online or at the Front Desk.

This SO member had a record 92 practices during the SO Summer Challenge! Her yoga journey began after years of suffering from the affects of lupus. Lupus is a chronic inflammatory condition that can affect various organs such as the skin, blood, respiratory, musculoskeletal, kidney, and heart. “Practicing yoga helped heal my mind and body. It allowed me to release the stress and turmoil that I was feeling about how my life and body had changed.” Read more in this month’s newsletter!
