Are you suffering from back pain?  Has your doctor suggested you join a yoga class?  If so, these masterclasses are for you.  Our increasingly sedentary lives have contributed greatly to the back pain epidemic spreading across the Western world, which affects 8 out of 10 of us at some point during our lives.

Join us for this series of classes to improve your understanding of your anatomy and make lasting improvements to your posture and movement, changing your experience of movement on the yoga mat and in everyday life.

Yoga for Back Care offers an insight into how and why we experience pain and offers a simple programme of movement to support you in learning to soothe and settle your back, building strength and confidence.

Each class will end with restorative postures to alleviate any discomfort, promoting self-repair and healing.

During the classes we will work together to:

  • Learn how to gently mobilize the joints thereby promoting the natural healing mechanism of the body
  • Build awareness of our natural movement patterns and how they may affect our ability to move with ease
  • Look at our posture and how we move in our daily lives
  • Relax tense muscles to enhance restorative blood flow
  • Develop strength, coordination and stability to help us move with confidence
  • Challenge our beliefs about pain, weakness and damage
  • Reassess our understanding of our bodies as vulnerable and discover the innate resilience of our structure
  • Reconnect and restore flexibility and joy in movement

You’re welcome to attend all classes as a block or drop in on a weekly basis.   If you’d prefer to book individual classes, please click here and make your booking.
