Back pain is a common ailment for many – especially for those who have sedentary jobs. As such there is a growing need for an effective non-drug relief or preventative care against chronic back pain. This series has been meticulously put together for anyone with back issues – such as general pain and strain, herniations or disc bulges, hyperkyphosis or lordosis, arthritis, sciatica, scoliosis, sacroiliac-joint problems, or spondylolisthesis; those who want to prevent future problems or flare ups. These practice sessions have a restorative element so it is also appropriate for anyone recovering from an existing injury or battling with anxiety surrounding back pain. The restorative sequences are meant to down-regulate your nervous system to bring about more ease and comfort throughout your day. Use this series to explore healthier movement patterns for your back, build strength and improve flexibility needed to restore a healthy back. The series has been curated in a way where the videos are under 30 mins so that they are easy to consume on a daily basis and one that allows you to return and review the sessions as and when you need extra care or relief.

    • Safe poses to stretch, tone and strengthen the key muscles to prevent and relieve back pain

Dear friends and community, it wasn’t an easy decision to arrive to but alas, with so many changes happening to the world, reevaluations of 2022 and many decisions to make for the new year, we have decided to close Urban Yogis for now. It’s been quite a ride from our humble beginnings in 2013 from a basic pop up group in the Botanic Gardens to a vibrant collective of like-minded yogis invested in their health, connection and nature. It’s bittersweet for us to reminisce the good old times, especially during our pivot through the pandemic. We appreciate everyone who stuck by us through it all - changes to protocols, swabbing, check-ins, safe distancing - you name it! What a time! We’ve grown so much through it and have seen so many of you grow with us as well. There truly is a community of you, so willing to adapt with us through bad weather and ridiculous Covid-measures. For that, we are so grateful. Thank you for supporting us and for being our life-line during an unexpected time of our journey. At the root of Urban Yogis is learning and growing through the spirit of Yoga and Wellness. From immersive experiences like workshops and retreats, our mission was to help people find joy in self-inquiry and practice. We know that you will continue to do so and that makes our journey so worthwhile knowing that we played a small part in that too. Thank you for seeing us, believing us and showing up. We look forward to crossing paths with you in different ways. You can always reach out to Julie (IG: @julieyogatravel), Kathy (IG: @kathygabriel__) and the wonderful teaching team at Urban Yogis independently. For those of you who would like to share the last practice with us, we still have Suntec classes running through January 2023.
