Aug 24, 2019 · Spinal stenosis: Relief through exercise in Spine Health

@artscaping, yes I think you might be able to find this type of yoga under "Yin" or "Yin Restore." If you can't find a class, try your public library and see if they have any DVDs on it. You probably don't have to buy any special equipment, either–just use cushions and rolled up towels to support the poses. I have definitely found myself "untangling" over the past couple of years. Good luck to you!

I also have spinal stenosis. I have found tremendous relief from doing yin yoga, the type of yoga where you hold a position for 4-6 minutes, supported by bolsters and other props, to get maximum release of the ligaments and fascia. If you live in Rochester, you can find a yin class at the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center. I go once a week and do Hatha Yoga once or twice a week, plus 20 minutes of back stretching before I get out of bed in the morning (suggested by my physical therapist). My pain level has gone from a 6 to a 1 in two years of regular practice.
