Yoga for Your Spine

If you have spine pain, back pain, sciatica, digestive issues, stress, anxiety, depression, poor circulation, weak immune system, heart problems or high blood pressure, this rather simple myofascial yoga series for your spine will be beneficial for your spine and entire body.

Inspired by the pawanmuktasana series, these yoga exercises and myofascial releases using a soft foam roller are designed to release your spine. This simple series for your spine will improve your digestion and circulation, reduce back pain, neck pain and sciatica, stretch and strengthen the myofascial tissue along the spine, relieve menstrual discomfort and stimulate your lymphatic system boosting your immune system.

The yoga exercises for your spine is also said to relieve stress, mild depression and anxiety.

The series helps to improve the circulation of blood and lymph in the body. As a result there is an improved immune function. In addition this series is excellent for people with heart problems and high blood pressure.

This short video offers myofascial release yoga using a soft foam roller. Myo means muscle and fascia refers to the network of connective tissue that surrounds and includes your muscle.

The fascial tissues get misaligned due to trauma, injury, poor movement patterns and emotional stress. Fascia is a system of proprioception. Fascia is rich in nerve endings, so it creates a direct pathway for nerve signals to flow to and from the brain which aids in proprioception, coordination and our ability to control our movements.

In this video we will use a soft foam roller to isolate the myofascia of your spine allowing you to create a neurophysiological response that will enable more range of motion along your spine as well as greater ease of movement and less pain.

The soft foam roller is a myofascial release tool that allows you to take your soft tissue care or myofascial release into your own hands. Because seeing a registered massage therapist regularly is expensive, regular use of a soft foam roller is an affordable alternative and offers many of the same benefits of therapeutic massage.

Using the soft foam roller on your back creates a neuro-physiological response. The myofascial release influences your nervous system which actually governs the baseline tone of your muscle. Because your fascial system is rich in nerve endings, the gentle pressure on fascia communicates that there is no longer need for tension in that area.

In the case of this class, the myofascial release using the soft foam roller creates a neurological response that allows you to have greater range of motion in your spine, experience greater ease during movement and less pain.
