Vinyasa 1 in Manson
This is a practice for everyone. This practice will leave you energized and with a sense of well being to begin your day.
As a morning practice we will move a bit slower giving the body a chance to awaken and respond. Focusing on breath, being present, and then moving into some gentle awakening movement. Modifications are provided during the work phase of our practice to allow students to move to their personal depth and edge of practice with a focus on anatomy and alignment. Level I-II postures explored depending on the experience of yogis attending.

From the doctor on Back Pain.
Doctors now realize that lying around is actually counterproductive, leading to a decrease in conditioning and an increase in pain. The longer you stay in bed the more muscle mass you lose (up to 3 percent per day) and the resulting loss of strength can interfere with your rehabilitation, and force you to overwork other muscles to compensate. Rather than babying a back injury, doctors now recommend people start gentle activities the first day.
