A yin yoga class creates space in and around the low back muscles. Glute massage using a tennis ball releases the outer glutes and back of the pelvis. A reclined side body stretch and supported child’s pose lengthen the muscles attached to the spine. This class is great for anyone who suffers injury or strain to the lower spine.
