Lower back injuries and conditions affect an estimated 31 million Americans and are second only to the common cold as a reason for a visit to the doctor. If you think about all the work your lower back does throughout your day, every day, it’s no wonder it's so vulnerable to injury and strain. But you don't need to feel helpless in the face of lower back pain. Yoga is a healing path that can both help relieve chronic lower back pain and build and sustain consistent lower back health.

In our time together, you will explore your lower back through both yoga postures and energy-moving breathwork. You will learn gentle, safe movements to stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak ones, techniques for coping with pain flare-ups, and ways to create natural tone and balance while respecting your body’s particular conditions and limitations. Liz Owen’s expertise of lower back health and yoga philosophy brings both Eastern and Western wisdom to bear on your healing journey, and it will help you bring mindfulness and depth to your practice and your daily life. Open to anyone of any skill level who wants to create or maintain a healthy lower back, and to professionals who wish to deepen their knowledge of how yoga can promote lower back health. Two Yoga Alliance CEU credits are available for yoga teachers.

Liz Owen is an inspiring and passionate yoga teacher. She combines physical and energetic alignments with meditative action to create an innovative and transformative class experience. She has taught since 1990 and is known for her light-hearted teaching style as well as for the depth of her knowledge.

Iyengar, Patricia Walden, Dharma Mittra, Erich Schiffmann, Rod Stryker, T.K.V. Desikachar, and Vasant Lad.
