Lower & Upper Back

20 min - Class


Welcome to Day 2! Today Niedra focuses on the lower and upper back, working on unraveling the whole spinal column. She starts with a pre-test to see where your body is before and then goes into exercises that will allow you to gain space, lengthen the muscles, and breathe more deeply.

Before and after was a very big difference. Not usually an area I have too much trouble with so I neglect to work on fascia in my back. Not anymore! Particularly loved the lower back and neck work. Love this challenge more than I can articulate!

I enjoyed the latter part of the class but sorry to say not the beginning, I actually found working on one side of the body uncomfortable. Niedra is a wonderful teacher

Just a qustion. Do you think this would be safe for osteoporosis? I personally love these classes. The fascia tends to be ignored yet is so important. Thank you Niedra.
Thank you Ewa Lori, Sharon and Brenda, I am thrilled to be reading your comments. Sharon, if one side was painful, there is a lot of imbalance in your body and working on the uncomfortable side more often should ease it up and help you regain stability and evenness.
Brenda - it will depend on how severe the osteoporosis is, but I would assume, if the person is exercising they can take some pressure with soft balls, and the work will help stimulate the bones and help encourage more cellular activity of a constructive nature. Keep the intensity low by deflating and working with the larger balls.

After the second day I am finding I have definitely neglected myself. I had tension on the left side that I didn't even know was there. What a wonderful release! Thank you, thank you.
