Back Care Yoga Workshops

Join us for a very gentle progressive workshop series investigating back care from the holistic perspective of Hatha Yoga.
  • View models of the body that will help you understand your anatomy and deepen your experience in the poses.
  • Practice specially-modified yoga postures that activate, strengthen, stabilize, & stretch the important postural muscles of the lumbar, thoracic & cervical spine, shoulder & hip girdles.
  • Engage in breathing practices that help bring mindful awareness & healing to the diaphragm, pelvic bowl, chest, ribcage, and low back.
  • Use visualization and meditation techniques to reduce pain and cultivate a sense of wholeness, peace and Ahimsa (loving care & kindness).
  • You will be given a personalized home exercise yoga program along with handouts that will help you take your practice with you beyond the Center.

Registering & committing to a series of classes will help us build and progress, covering different topics each session.  This gentle workshop is suitable for those who have chronic pain or acute issues.  Workshop is limited to 6 participants for optimum individualized attention.  Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

What Students have said

“Oh, I cannot sing Jessie’s praises enough.  2 years ago I finally decided to try yoga to strengthen my core.  I told myself that maybe with in 10 classes my back discomfort would lessen, and I cried at the end of the first class – and drove home with no pain.  I know that not everyone responds that quickly, but I have yet to leave a class with Jessie with out feeling remarkably like I am whole again.”

“Thank you so much for teaching yoga the way you do … I just love love your class … I can feel all my muscles this morning – not sore, just a gentle reminder that they are alive within me 🙂  I am so looking forward to this summer’s classes!  Thank you!”

~J. P.

“I attended a special yoga class for folks with back issues. It was so much fun, and it was my first experience with yoga of any kind. It was not what I thought it was going to be … it was so much better. No stressing, no straining, just getting reacquainted with my body in new ways. I learned some new breathing techniques and about discovering spaces in my body I did not know were there. Thank you, Jessie, for your gentle guidance and your creative insights.”

~ Connie Cassidy

“Don’t miss Jessie. Her knowledge is deep and wide — anatomy, physiology, yoga, energy, inner work — and her teaching is excellent. She adjusts instantly to what the group or individual needs, and her observation skills are sharp. Constantly on the move with modifications, props,adjustments, encouragement. And she’s coming from a big, caring, generous, healing heart. The world needs Jessie and so do I!”

~ Mary Beth Conlee

“I have been a student of Jessie’s since the beginning of this calendar year (2014). I was new to yoga, never once having experienced anything remotely close to this type of exercise. I had been recently diagnosed with a severe form of stenosis (arthritis) in the lumbar area of my back, shortly following caring for my mother who had just passed away.  I was in horrible pain 24 hours a day, and in a rather fragile emotional state.

When I first started Jessie’s class, the pain relief lasted an entire week, and my emotional state was lifted enormously!!!  My condition is slowly healing as much as my body is able, with several classes a week under Jessie’s instruction. I don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t have my sweet Jessie, and her extremely careful, and considerate care these past few months!!!  If she ever relocates, I will be following her … little does she know!!!”
