One of the most important muscles to stabilize the low back is called the Quadratus Lumborum. People who suffer low back pain compression, inevitably have a tight QL. A foreshortened QL can pull the ribs out of place, create scoliosis in the spine and cause the pelvis to jack upward. In this class we practice a series of poses designed to free restrictions in the QL including twists, side bends and light back arches.

Prajna Yoga: Tias & Surya Little
Prajna Yoga makes its home in the foothills of Santa Fe, New Mexico – the home of Tias and Surya Little. We believe that yoga is a pathway that begins in the outer layers of body and mind and navigates inward to the mystical, subtle and rarely seen interior. We combine meditative practice with the power and grace of asana training. In a process that requires sensitivity and inner listening, we explore the sheaths of connective tissue, muscle and bone in order to bring about greater wakefulness, luminosity and space within.
