Back Alignment Yoga

Chronic back problems are an issue for many people. Our modern, sedentary lifestyles can lead to muscles weakening from misuse, and the stresses and anxieties of day to day life can cause a variety of stress-related pains, like neck pain and chronic headaches. At Om’echaye, we aim to address these issues with Back Alignment Yoga classes, specialized to not only strengthen and tone muscle but to help you find physical and spiritual alignment.

How Does Back Alignment Yoga Help

Many people with office jobs sit hunched over at a computer for hours on end and start to experience back pain. Our Back Alignment Yoga classes use specialized positions to strengthen the muscles in the back and neck. Holding these positions for prolonged periods helps to build strength by focusing the attention of muscles that may not see much use throughout the day. Adding smaller movements to the poses helps add variety to how they are used and positioned. When back muscles are regularly worked out and used, back pain can be greatly reduced or eliminated entirely. 

Other Advantages of Back Alignment Yoga

Back Alignment Yoga also aims to align the mind and body, incorporating breathing exercises that bring inner calm and help the body relax and focus on the movements at hand. Yoga helps to decrease stress and anxiety, which are also leading factors in back and neck pain, as tension causes muscles to seize up and makes it harder for them to be used. We recognize that spiritual fitness is as important as physical fitness, and our yoga instructors aim to provide you with both. 

Attending a yoga class for the first time can be intimidating, so here are some tips to keep in mind.

  1. Try not to eat a large meal beforehand. A small snack and some water will help keep your energy up, but if you’re attempting to digest a full meal, certain poses may be more difficult.
  2. Always focus on your breathing. Proper breathing techniques are essential to a successful yoga experience and can help take your mind off potential stresses that come with trying new poses.
  3. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Our instructors at Om’echaye are here to assist yoga students at every level, and their only goal is to help you achieve the physical and spiritual balance you crave in your life. Everyone was once a beginner- there’s no shame in being one!
