From Low Back Pain to Low Back Love


Low back pain is one of the leading causes of medical visits and missed work days in the Unites States. Back pain is frustrating and can even be the source of anger as our body changes from poor posture, too much sitting, and repetitive stress mechanics. 

Join yoga therapist and anatomy teacher Kari Harendorf and shift your entire thinking around your beautiful spine. Through discussion, breathwork, movement, and more, you will learn:

  • How the spine is viewed as the source of health and vitality
  • Ways to take the pressure off the lower back and support functional movement 
  • Yoga practices and postural and somatic movements to support lower back health
  • The anatomy of the spine and some of the most common ailments 
  • Key principles of core stabilization

Come discover how to slow down back pain progression—and even reverse subclinical changes that are often attributed to pain—and gain greater freedom and vitality in your body. Move from back pain to back love!
