I'm so glad I found this practice. My back feels wonderful. I plan on coming back to this class any time my back feels achy. Thank you so much. Namaste.

I have been having severe sciatica for almost three months, and have gone to three different acupuncturists, with varying degrees of relief. This class, along with treatment is doing the trick. Especially helpful are the reverse postures like sphinx and the upward curl, which seems to have prodded a herniated disk back into place because of the reverse emphasis on curling the spine. The entire class did things for my spine that absolutely no other yoga class has ever done before. The emphasis on subtle ligament, bone and tendon alignment, instead of raw muscle ability like a vinyasa flow, has finally started a real realignment and healing process. I am blown away by how subtle, but how important this is for injury repair.

Thank you so much for sharing your experince!
As a Yoga Therapist I have been helping folks with back pain for years, bulging disks being a common thing I would see in my classes. So although I'm not surprised at your results I am absolutely delighted to hear this. I have have persistant back pain, and I know how exhausting and scary it can be. I wish you a speedy recovery and I'm honoured to have been part of your journey.
