Find relief from chronic back pain using yoga. Elise Browning Miller teaches how yoga postures, when practiced with the correct emphasis, can be extremely successful in alleviating conditions ranging from minor neck and lower-back tension to severe scoliosis.

This program addresses

  • How to use yoga to increase strength and flexibility in the back, focusing on the relationship between the spinal column, pelvis, and shoulder blades
  • Beneficial classical and modified asanas for back conditions, including lower-back pain, disc disease, sciatica, upper-back and neck tightness, and scoliosis
