Slouching and back pain go hand in hand, many medical practitioners have claimed

That's why Akasha Studio Trinidad focuses on correct alignment in order to ensure the spine is supported at all times. 

Akasha Studio's co-director, Jacqueline Quesnel, shows how to support the spine through proper alignment:

In this video, Jackie introduces Bowspring, a new technique currently offered at Akasha Studio which focuses on protecting the natural curvature of the spine, and bringing lightness and fluidity in any movement.

 

What is Bowspring? 

Bowspring is a modern Alignment System, inspired by Yoga and based on scientific research regarding body and movement.

According to the American Osteopathic Association, yoga has numerous benefits that can help you in the short- and long-term.

Yoga has been shown to lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia.

Other physical benefits of yoga include increased flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, improved respiration, energy and vitality, maintaining a balanced metabolism, weight reduction, and even protection from injury. 

Yoga can also help users manage stress, bring mental clarity, and help create a more positive outlook on life.
