    HERE’S a reality check: most of us straighten our backs with a muffled ‘ouch’. Persistent back pain is as common as work that involves hours of hunching over computers. So yoga practitioner Mansi Gandhi is teaming up with Rutland Gate Studio to bring us a focussed programme to tackle the problem. “The fact is that back pain is quite subtle but very debilitating. It’s a road block that most people tend to neglect, but it can stop you from doing other things in your life,” explains Gandhi, whose five-day workshop will include a combination of asanas like the bhujangasana and the naukasana to strengthen and stretch the back. “The back muscles are supported by your abdominal and oblique muscles. And there are deep-seated muscles that are not used at all—they can be targeted only with specific exercises, which cannot be addressed even by gymming. So even physically fit people can develop back problems because these muscles are not exercised,” adds Gandhi. Ideal even for beginners, the classes will help you learn the tools to keep your back straight and strong.
    November 2-6, from 6.15 pm to 7.15 pm. Rs.2,000. Details: rutlandgatestudio@gmail.com
