Our multi-faceted program tailors the approach so your specific needs are addressed. As a result, you can begin to feel relief, create new patterns of awareness and learn how to balance strength and flexibility.

How Yoga Helps

Yoga provides a holistic approach to back care – that is to say, it has an effect on the body, the breath and the mind.
