There are times in life when our back hurts and we don’t know how to care for it. Whether you’re recovering from an injury, experiencing painful sciatica, or generalized low back pain, Pilates can help. Alisa leads a slow, gentle mat workout focused on creating length and support for the spine, and balanced easy movement in the hips. She doesn't go into detailed explanation for the reasons behind pain here, she simply leaves out movements that are best avoided for back pain such as twisting, rolling or forward bending. Alisa finishes with some simple stretches for opening up key areas that can often bring instant relief as well as an exercise leaning against a wall for a quick reminder that you can do during your day to keep your back happy.
