Aug. 26 party celebrates release of Lillah Schwartz’s new book about back pain

A party for the release of Lillah Schwartz’s new book, Healing Our Backs with Yoga: An Essential Guide to Back Pain Relief, will be held Friday, Aug. 26, at One Center Yoga, 120 Coxe Ave. The book offers readers the opportunity to learn the basic yoga poses used in Schwartz’s signature back course. It contains hundreds of photos with step-by-step instructions for performing the best yoga pose sequences for reducing back pain.

“I can’t heal the world, but I can help yoga students find relief from back pain,” says Schwartz. “By writing my book, I am now able to reach many more good people who simply never had anyone explain to them how their body works, the alignment principles of yoga, and how they could move to remain balanced and free from the discomfort of back pain.”

Schwartz is an Asheville-based Iyengar yoga instructor with over 30 years of experience teaching yoga.
