ABOUT YOGA FOR BACKS CLASSES

Our yoga and movement classes are based on Critical Alignment Therapy and Yoga, developed in the Netherlands by the visionary Gert Van LeeuWen.

The importance of Critical Alignment is gaining attention, due to its focus on movement chains and our use of props which balance the spine and hips to reduce tension and address postural asymmetries. 

These classes are different I don't just cue alignment, I explain and educate while giving you, the participant, an opportunity to experience the practice. Amazing props align, mobilize and strengthen the spinal column, hips and shoulders. These classes help develop full range mobility and strength so the body grows strong, supple and resilient.
