GOT BACK PAIN?

Through re-educating the body in alignment, learn how to eliminate chronic pain and discomfort. Create balance in the body using therapy exercises and bring yourself back to the way your body was intended to be: open and free!

Testimonial: My back surgery years ago only reduced the frequency of my sciatic pain. At the recommendation of my physical therapist, I decided to give YOGA a chance. My Facebook friends suggested Ami and they were right. I had some serious doubts about this, but I was proven wrong. Ami‘s straightforward approach to daily stretching for only 15 minutes not only stopped my pain, but also gives me extra energy.
