This is an asana session for recovering from a strained back.
Most positions in this session are supported adaptations of classical asana positions. Props will be required.
Each of the positions shown in this session should bring relief to the back when one settles down in the positions. None of these positions should aggravate/increase discomfort in the back.
If this is happening, release the position, and move on to the next one. Feel free to stay a little longer in those positions where the back feels good. Maintain even, soft breath throughout.
Each position is first demonstrated. Observe the demonstration carefully, and wait for the cue to take the position yourself. If you are repeating the session and don’t need the demonstrations first, look at the recording ‘w/o instructions’
Some of the positions show options of assistance from a helper. This is not essential, but if you have a willing friend who you are comfortable with, don’t refuse the offer of help.
This session begins, and ends with supported Savasana. Two variations of Savasana are shown – both are shown in the beginning of the session. Both can be tried.
Stay in the one that feels better on your back.
