Yoga class for lower back pain associated with a slipped or herniated disc in lumbar spine

Sarah B. Yoga + Feldenkrais® show

Summary: Episode 19: This is a vodcast that I recorded specially for a student who has a slipped disk in her lumbar spine. In general this is a gentle class that most everyone can participate in. However, if you are dealing with a different injury your program should always be tailored to fit your specific needs. If you would like to watch the video of this class visit the podcast episode page on my website While your back pain persists if you have a slipped of herniated disk in the lower back there are a few things to remember when you are practicing yoga: *Do not bend forward past 90 degrees with straight knees. *Avoid all seated forward bends. (which there are none of in this class) *Avoid rounding your back. (you will notice we are doing a lot of small gentle arches in the lower back which will help ease the disk back towards its correct placement) * If any pose causes pain, tingling, or numbness, stop immediately. Be sure to modify with blankets, blocks, straps and any other props that you need. Sarah Baumert has been teaching movement since 2006.
