    When: Tuesday, September 25, 2018 11:00 AM

    Yoga for a Happy Back Class is designed to cultivate optimal spinal health and comfort.

This class from instructor Marti Lahood helps alleviate back pain and other spinal issues. Alignment- Based Yoga postures are taught to create stability and space in the hips and spine, as well as relieve tension in the upper back, neck, and shoulders. All levels are welcome. You’re encouraged to bring a yoga mat; however, one will be provided for you to use during the class if needed.

    This program is limited to 20 PTPLD participants. Patrons may register up to 2 guests.
