Okay, I admit the class will focus on more than just lower back pain exercises. In fact the entire spinal column will get a good workout through this yoga set (kriya.)

Lower back pain tends to be an item that many people deal with, from office workers to construction workers, we could all use some exercises to work with our lower back pain.

I realize that this is called a basic spinal series, but there is nothing basic about this class. It provides a scientific exercise approach to the lower back and more. The yogis say that age can be measured based on the flexibility of ones spine. At first this may come off as rather off the wall. But let’s think deeper on this. Our spinal column is the encasement for our central nerve channel. This means that the balance of the bodies messages, in the nervous system, are carried throughout this channel. What is age, other than a slowing down of system processes, the nervous system being of primary importance.

So in this class we will be focusing on the lower back and working our way up our spine.

I’ve recently read that many people experience greater mental clarity after stepping through this kriya.

I do hope you can join me or find a class near you sometime!

    I have two suggestions:

    1. consult a doctor
    2. locate a kundalini yoga teacher in your area, take a class and inform them of the blocked back energy.

    A Vinayoga teacher suggested a position in which I straightened out each leg one ofter the other to help with my lower back pain. It feels good, but I get a clicking sensation in the lower back area when I do it. Is this normal?

  4. hershel Says:

    Hmm, if you learned the position from a Vinayoga teacher, then might I suggest you ask them about the clicking sensation which results from the posture. They are best suited to discuss.

    I can say that from time to time I’ll note some clicking in certain poses. I suspect it is just the joints, etc. realigning through the posture. If there would be pain associated with the clicks I would modify my posture or stop performing it.
