Lillah breaks down each movement to it’s simplest form so every person can find a place to begin their healing journey.

Yoga Poses for more than the Lower Back

Lower back pain is not the only area of the spine where people experience discomfort. Anyone who sits for a long period of time  is likely to experience weakness and discomfort in somewhere in their spine. Mid-back, between the shoulder blades, and the top of the neck are common areas of discomfort.

Several sections of the book are devoted to relieving arm and shoulder pain, others offer sequences to strengthen the spine for stability and will even build bone density.

As you will learn from reading and practicing with this book, overall strength, flexibility, and practice are necessary for a person to continue to live pain free.


” Your book is exceptional.  I’m ordering a copy for another yoga teacher.  There truly isn’t a book like it and I’m enjoying the process of absorbing it.  It’s on the top shelf of my Yoga book collection along with Elise Miller’s new scoliosis book and Donald Moyer’s book.  Quite an accomplishment.  It’s very approachable and informative in a clearly compassionate way.  Thanks for sharing your wisdom!  Lots of people will benefit from this work.”
