Event Details

Not so fun fact: 8 in every 10 Americans will experience back pain at some point of their lives. In this Master Class, you’ll learn simple and direct ways to gain awareness of your body and utilize your yoga practice (with variations and accommodations given) to find space, release, and strength in one of the biggest supports in your body: the back.

Learn to build your yoga practice with back health in mind. Come explore the fundamental actions of yoga poses that create space, ease, align, and strengthen. We’ll practice supine and standing poses along with restorative forward bends to spread and release the lower back. Through standing poses, supported back arches, and restorative postures, we’ll explore strength and functionality in the arms and shoulders as a way to find freedom in the spine.

This experience is for everyone! Those who are newer to the practice can benefit from learning how to avoid problems before they begin, while those with more experience can gain an understanding of how to apply what they already know to prevent and treat problems on the spot. This workshop is especially beneficial for those who suffer from back pain and wish to navigate their way through their practice.




(Sunday) 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Nick Potenzieri

Nick began the study of yoga in 2001 and has been fascinated by the practice and its teachings ever since. In 2005 he began teaching, received a certification from Sri Dharma Mitra in 2008, and most recently in 2019, completing the Teacher Education program at the Iyengar Institute of New York where he continues to apprentice and study with Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher, Matt Dreyfus. Being an avid practitioner of Iyengar Yoga has shifted Nick’s teaching to explore the commonalities between the (richness of) Iyengar method and the greater yoga community. In his teaching, he has had the opportunity to lead trainings and workshops on both the east and west coasts, and is grateful to work with a wide range of students of all capabilities, capacities, and walks of life. In addition to yoga, Nick has been a long term meditation practitioner and in 2020 became a certified mindfulness facilitator. His mindfulness work has included Pfizer, ING, and The Arcus Foundation. Nick’s positive energy as well as creative and skilled teaching help him in achieving his goal of inspiring others to develop a deeper understanding of how these practices can lead to more fulfillment in their lives and peace in their hearts. Seeing someone reach their potential is what inspires Nick about teaching yoga. It could be in an asana, or, even more rewarding, when you see their joy come into their life.
