Ok guys, I have lower back problems. And this week, I did not listen to my body, and sprained my lower back and hip. I needed to rest my body, but I didn’t. Not to worry, I’ve learned my lesson.
My chiropractor recommended that I do stretches and not allow myself to get tight. I asked him if I could do Yoga, and he said as long as I didn’t over do it, to go for it.
I would say I’m around a mid to high fitness level, and these moves were pretty simple. But guyz, oh guyz, it felt SO GOOD! It really helped my lower back and it helped keep me loose.
Let Adriene tell you a little about herself:
Hi there! My name is Adriene Mishler and I was born and raised in Austin, TX. (Cue the Texas Fight song as played by a chorus of beautiful Japanese flutists.) I’m a vegetarian who likes BBQ sauce, bluebonnets, antiques and vintage clothes. I have an affinity for children and animals. I love Rumi and Rodeos. I’m a professional actor in film, commercial and theater and I teach performance, movement and yoga for all ages. I love my family, my friends, my community and I am smiling as I write this.

I hope you will join me… read on
