  • Back Care Seriesn our society, we spend too much time sitting or bent over. We drive to and from work in a car and sit at a desk all day, and we unwind on the couch or recliner. Our bodies are stiff and in pain. With back pain increasingly prevalent, an alternative to drug treatment is welcome. Yoga can help relieve tightness, increase circulation and increase your strength and flexibility. Learn to move from the center of the body. Expand and condense from the center out, and back in. Increase spine strength and bring good health to the abdominal organs, by keeping your center strong and supple. Join Suzanne, and learn to breathe fully and move with your breath. with EllenEllen Mangiafico is a veteran who served in the United States Air Force and has been living with the effects of Post Traumatic Stress for 20 years.
