CE Workshop | Lower Back Pain and the Iliopsoas

with Laura Staton (C-IAYT) . Approximately 80 precent of the population suffers from chronic, or episodic, lower back pain. This can occur for many different reasons, yet how we move, sleep, and sit can dramatically impact our backs' health. Often, proper balancing of the deep flexor muscles of the “core” with the extensor muscles of the lower back/pelvis can improve low back pain—and yoga is a wonderful medium for this to occur! This workshop discusses the functioning of the iliopsoas muscle, the alignment of the pelvis, and the risks of excessive sitting and poor sleep hygiene. It also provides guidance on how to address and trouble-shoot our students’ and personal lower back pain.
