Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs

on August 20, 2014

I’ve  been training on this fabulous programme.  It comes out of a clinical trial run by York University, funded by Arthritis UK and is all about giving people the skills to manage their back pain.

Run as a 12 week course, participants learn simple, gentle yoga, targeting pain-relief, good posture, and improvement of their back health for now and the future. Aims are re-education and re-alignment of the body, plus raised self-awareness and relaxation. Poses include standing, sitting kneeling and lying down with stable comfort.

I’ve been teaching for many years, yet this training on this programme has taught me so much more.  And now I’m about to launch a new course sharing this programme in Bicester … very exciting!
