Sitting down for long periods of time can create stiffness in the hips and shortening of the hamstrings which in turn will lead to lower back pain. To top that, the desk you might be sitting on will force you to sit in a hunched posture which creates tension in the shoulders and neck. Watch this video for a head-to-toe stretch without leaving your chair.
Recommended props: a chair!
Chronic lower back pain can be very challenging for our mood and emotions. This class will teach us how to liberate our back and work on releasing lower back tensions and reinforcing the supporting muscles of the back.
Mathilde is assisted in this class by her lovely husband and yogi Lougal.
