Back to Life! Yoga for Low Back Care with Jacci Collins

Jun 8, 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Lower back pain is not something you have to live with. With a thoughtful, intelligent yoga practice we can relieve chronic back pain and restore balance.

80% of us will experience lower back pain in our lives. Fortunately we know that the majority of back pain is due to muscular imbalance, which can be managed with a steady and targeted yoga practice. Through developing awareness of our imbalances, paired with specific asanas and postural alignment, we can begin to balance and restore the body’s natural integrity. In this three-hour workshop suitable for all-levels, we will discuss the three main muscle groups that are responsible for maintaining the delicate balance of the lower back: hamstrings, psoas, and core. We will discover our own strengths and weaknesses in these areas and move through a nourishing practice dedicated to the back, providing you with tools to heal and maintain.

This workshop is part of a weekend intensive, Yoga For Life,  dedicated to the health and longevity of all the major joints of the body, but may be taken independently.

Jacci Collins | View Full Profile »

Jacci’s journey in yoga began over 14 years ago when she sought out Ashtanga yoga as an alternate form of training for her career as a professional dancer. Once on the mat, she discovered that yoga was not only the perfect way to balance out the body’s strengths and weaknesses, but it also left her feeling peaceful and at ease. As her awareness grew she was able to manage chronic injuries left in her body from a career in dance. She even averted pending low-back surgery by committing to a steady and mindful yoga practice. She remains constantly humbled by how deep this practice can penetrate. A firm believer in the body-mind connection, she encourages her students to move away from the ego and into the true self. She is currently teaching hatha, flow and vinyasa yoga throughout Vancouver. Her classes emphasize a strong awareness of physicality along with self-acceptance and trust in the innate intelligence of the body. Jacci is a registered yoga teacher (RYT200) as well as a registered teacher trainer (E-RYT200) and has proudly been teaching yoga to all ages and abilities since 2004.
