Yoga for Hip, Lower Back, and Pelvic Pain

with Leslie Howard E-RYT 500, C-IAYT
Price: $125.00

Thursdays: Mar. 11, 18, and 25

Join Leslie Howard, an internationally-acclaimed Yoga educator who pioneered the growing field of Yoga for pelvic health, for this three-part online workshop designed to help people with pain or tension in the pelvis, hips, or back. Pain and tension can result from trauma or chronic holding patterns. Trauma can include chronic poor posture, surgeries, difficult labor, sexual abuse, or strains. Pelvic trauma or tension can contribute to issues such as incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse.

This workshop includes a brief anatomy lecture and discussion, breathing techniques, and Yoga poses practiced with particular attention to gently relax the muscles of the pelvis, hip, and back. Handouts will be provided to help support your practice of what you will learn.

Live sessions with Leslie on Thursdays at 7–9 pm ET.

The main program sessions are live and all sessions are in ET. The live sessions will be recorded and posted to the Online Programs access page if you are unable to join us live for that session. Recordings* are usually posted within one day and are available to program participants and presenter(s) only.
*You're welcome to turn off your camera if you don't wish your image to be recorded.

You will have access to the video recordings for 1 week after the program ends, until April 1.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
