Yoga for Lower Back Pain

"It is not your history but your presence on the mat that matters." - Sri Krishni Pattabhi Jois

I just got back from a gorgeous weekend away from Lisbon in the adorable city of Sintra. I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed by the amount of time I have been spending in big cities and needed to disconnect. For me, being able to find quiet moments in nature truly allows me to find a sense of groundedness and re-connect with myself.

Sintra is full of gorgeous greenery, ornate gardens, and castles straight out of a fairy tale.



I took the time to find quiet and journal. I explored the wilderness, the castles, and the city center. Plus, I had the opportunity to film a yoga video for y'all!

My remote year group has decided it is fitness month and I have been working it a bit harder than normal. I am feeling a bit out of whack all over, but mostly in my low back. Back pain is my number one complaint from students, so I wanted to share a practice for releasing tension in the low back and to gently open into the hips.

I hope this helps some of you find relief this week. Let me know what you think <3

I am not an "expert" on anything. However, I have an intense love for yoga, healthy living, and self exploration. I have been sharing stories, wonderings, and so-called knowledge with my students for a while now, but now I am ready to learn! I am about to set off on an adventure around the world and am eager to share my experiences. My plan is to keep you posted on how I stay healthy and enjoy the journey, but we will just have to see what happens! <3
