Tai Chi Fit for a Healthy Back
Relax Your Back and Raise Your Spirit
Back pain is one of the most common problems in the world, often caused by working too hard, or sometimes by not getting enough exercise. Studies show by the age of 65 more than two thirds of the population have suffered from lower back pain at least once, and a great many suffer from it daily. Back pain can make almost everything else in life nearly impossible and can lead to a sedentary lifestyle and depression.
Tai Chi master teacher David-Dorian Ross guides you through a seated routine that can be practiced by anyone, at any age or fitness level. With repetition you will gradually experience pain relief, strength and flexibility. These seated tai chi and qigong exercises to stretch and strengthen your back will take pressure off the spine and muscles, so that you can ease into essential postures for alleviating pain and create better structural integrity.
These movements are gentle and easy enough that anyone can practice along, even if you haven’t exercised in years! The best news is that there is nothing to “learn” in this program. You won’t have to memorize a complicated routine or keep working to perfect any movement or position. Just follow the class, breathe deeply, and have fun.
