Drawing of muscles of backIf you experience back pain or discomfort, are diagnosed with scoliosis or simply want a better understanding of this area, this 2 hour class is ideal for you.

Muscles along the spine are only a minor element affecting posture. Included are the ligaments and fascia of the sacrum, lumbar and thoracic spine. This hard working tissue is locked ‘short’ and tight through continuous use, especially when posture is imbalanced. Conversely, aging, injury and daily slumping flex the spine forward and lock the back area ‘long’.

Rafael will show ways to lengthen and strengthen muscles, ligaments and fascia related to the spine. Relaxation postures will be included.

Handouts will be provided. For all levels and abilities. Pre-registration is encouraged.

Cost is $25.
