THIS IS A 6 WEEK SPECIALIZED SERIES, THIS CLASS MEETS ONCE A WEEK FOR 6 WEEKS.

Yoga is an invaluable aid toward healing and overall health, but chronic back issues require special care in the practice of yoga to prevent further injury. Students dealing with herniated discs, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, stenosis, kyphosis, degenerative disc disease, osteoporosis, as well as other conditions that affect back stability and strength, will find this class beneficial. Marianne was diagnosed and has been dealing with lumbar scoliosis since the age of 14 and uses yoga as therapy in her own practice.

This series is recommended for students who want to understand their own health conditions and find healing through the practice of yoga. Students new to yoga as well as advanced yoga practitioners are welcome.

Marianne crafts her class for students’ specific health conditions, so class size is limited to 10 students.

• Understand how the body is structured
• Understand how we are designed to move
• Learn how to move using the body’s structural integrity through yoga
• Develop strength, stability, alignment, and comfort in a safe environment

*Requirements: Students have the ability to get up and down off the floor.

The instructor Marianne Meyers has been a C-IAYT (Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists) since 2016. In addition, she is a certified Body Balance Yoga Therapy instructor, a certified Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga instructor and a certified Yoga for Osteoporosis instructor, as well as attending a 40 hour Yoga for Scoliosis training. She specializes in teaching students with injuries, chronic health conditions and accident recovery.
