“I have taken innumerable back and restorative (spinal release) classes from Elaine. She is fantastic. Elaine is an exceptional communicator and provides individual attention. The results have been great. My nagging back pains have substantially subsided. ”Tom C.
“Elaine is amazing! She is so calm, relaxed, and professional all at the same time. She worked with me in helping reconnect to parts of my body that were "turned off" because I was overcompensating for past injuries. I've worked with many yoga professionals over the past 10+ years, but no one with the depth of knowledge Elaine possesses about yoga therapy, anatomy, and chronic pain management. ”Allen H.
“I have begun to see vast improvements in both my chronic pain, energy output, and overall outlook on life. It has been an overwhelmingly positive and restorative experience and I cannot recommend Elaine enough to anyone who is looking for help with their pain symptoms or even just stress management.”Sivan R.
“Within just a few sessions with Elaine, I began to feel energized, flexible and strong. She speaks clearly and succinctly making it easy to follow instructions and emphasizes asking questions to ensure clarity. She is up on the latest research available (all my other providers ask me to share with them what she says!). In the days following a session with Elaine, I remember exactly what she recommends for my body because it feels so very good. I am grateful to Elaine for her instruction and for working with me to give my body the love and nourishment it deserves. Do yourself and your family a favor and get in front of Elaine and SEE THE DIFFERENCE!”Christine K.
How often should I practice these sequences?
Regularity and consistency are key here! Clients who commit to regular practice of 4-5x per week see the most results. I've designed 4+ practices in this course so that you can pick and choose 1-2 that works best for you. If you have limited time, stick with one sequence/practice for a week or two and see how you feel. Then choose the next sequence and stick with it for another 1-2 weeks. Results may differ with the variety of sequences and with the different types of back pain. Overtime, you will gain an understanding which ones your body loves and responds to most effectively.
Can I practice these sequences if I have diagnosed back injuries?
As with all movement-based activities, please consult with your physician before starting this course.
Can I practice all the sequences in one day?
Yes, absolutely! These 20-30 minute sequences are also designed so that you can integrate them all into your day. Of course, use your intuition wisely and listen to the feedback your body gives you. If your body feels particularly fatigued, tired, or sore that day, do not push yourself into doing all of the sequences, and instead opt for the Evening or Restorative practices.
What do the sequences and practices look like?
The sequences are all fairly gentle and slow-paced, with lots of alignment cues and meticulous instructions to help keep your body safe while you reap the benefits of the yoga practice. However, if something does not feel right while you practice, please stop immediately
