Reminder: Take care of yourself. We are here to help.


Dr. Matt explains how the typical β€œcat-cow” yoga position causes too much extension of the lumbar spine. Instead, seating into the lumbar lock position with a flat back, the tension is moved to the thoracic spine where we want it πŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ


Looking for Spine Safe Ab exercises? We recommend the Plank and Assisted Leg lift. The Spine here is in neutral, causing less force on the back. Try adding these into your regular workout routine!


We are closed today to celebrate the New Year! We will open tomorrow and are ready for new goals and no limits!
