About Us

In today’s fast paced and stressful world 85% of American adults suffer from some sort of back pain. Seeking gentle, non-invasive ways to relieve their suffering people are turning to Yoga to help heal back injuries, relieve strain from sitting at computers and driving for long periods of time; for scoliosis, and even for post back surgeries.

There are no quick fixes, but that is exactly why StillPoint Yoga’s slow, step by step progression is so effective. Individuals are often told by health practitioners to strengthen their abdominals to help relieve back pain. This can help, but with all the factors of why your back hurts taken into consideration something more is needed and this is where Yoga can be beneficial.

Yoga means to connect the mind, body and breath. Each yoga pose is structured to stretch and strengthen the entire body system; including but not limited to, muscles, bones, tissues, ligaments, and tendons. The lungs, liver, stomach, intestines and other organs are also muscles and Yoga provides an excellent stretch and massage for them as well. A regular practice of Yoga can increase flexibility and strength, improve your balance, help your digestive system to work more efficiently and reduce that nagging pain in your back.

  1. I’m thinking about taking your yoga class, im 62 years young, I’ve had a stroke in 1982 on my right side, I still have use on my right side, my joints aren’t what they used to be, I could use some balance. Could you select a class for me?

    • Donna – Thank you for reaching out to StillPoint. I have sent you a private email, but want to post here as well so that you definitely don’t miss it. I think that our Tuesday, 11 am Gentle Class might be a great starting point for you. It provides an opportunity for students to work within their individual ranges to explore flexibility, mobility, strength and breath. If you are available, please come next week – often it is the getting ourselves to the first class that can prove most difficult. If you would like, I am happy to put you in touch with some students who are regulars in that class. Hope to see you in the studio soon!
