Did you know that by design, the breath is meant to massage and elongate the human spine? Dr. Roger Sperry, 1981 Nobel Prize winner for brain research states: "90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine." Modern posture has essentially incapacitated this movement. In this one-hour session, we will teach postural and breathing basics that will begin to restore elasticity, movement and breath to your spine. 

Instructors: Jean Couch, Founder and co-director of the Balance Center, is the author of "The Runner’s Yoga Book". For over 25 years, Jean has been involved in empirical research studying populations of people who have no back or joint pain. Jenn Sherer, co- directs the Balance Center and is passionate about helping others take charge of their own relief through awareness and guidelines of Spinefulness.
