Therapeutic Yoga for the Spine: Yoga as a Tool for Creating Wellness..... Saturday, November 13, 2010 10:00am- 2:00pm

Today, more and more people are turning to complimentary alternative medicine techniques in order to resolve a wide variety of disorders, from musculo-skeletal in nature, to cardiovascular and neurological. There is evidence that certain yoga postures offer effective treatment for chronic pain and range of motion deficits resulting from trauma and/or the degenerative process.

Please join Dr. Joanne Cesiro and myself for our therapeutic workshop this Saturday, November 13, 2010 from 10-2 pm at The United Methodist Church, 407 Main Street, Farmingdale, NY. Whether you are suffering from pain or are interested in learning yoga to develop a strong core for spinal wellness, this workshop will teach you to optimize your overall health naturally.

Our workshop is designed to help participants develop strength, stamina, and proper body alignment. Topics to be covered include:

* Basic anatomy
* Diagnoses of the back
* Precautions and contraindications

In addition, we will demonstrate appropriate asana sequences (yoga poses) to relieve spinal pain and promote spinal wellness. Each asana will be practiced together to ensure proper alignment to achieve maximum health benefits.

Workshop Prices are as follows:
Members: $30 in advance; $35 at door

A light vegetarian buffet will be served.
