The American Chiropractic Association reports that at any given time, 31 million Americans suffer with lower back pain.......wow.....so with that thought in the back of my head, classes were all about the back today.....slow, easy cow/cat postures ( seated, kneeling and standing) gentle twists, knees to chest, side stretches and boat asanas to strengthen the core. Everyone in both classes admitted to back pain, all left class smiling. Yoga has been proven to help with lower back pain.
It is still cold and damp, snow flurries, sleet and rain were on the agenda today......I actually saw snowflakes falling as big as nickles.......I did my snow happy dance.
But with cold damp weather, back issues can flare......get thee to a yoga class, talk to the instructor, take it slow and easy and feel better soon.
Tomorrow is Friday, the weekend is upon us.....today was my husband, Rick's birthday. He is 64 and yes according to the Beatles's tune......I still need him, I still feed him. :)
At 64 years young, his back issues are almost non-existent since he started his yoga practice......and he can touch his toes!
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
