Description

In this workshop Anna brings together extensive training and many years experience of treating people with back problems with osteopathy, yoga, shiatsu and relaxation techniques along with her own personal experience of recovery from a back injury.

This is not a one size fits all approach to back pain. You will learn about some of the most common conditions affecting the back, how to determine which yoga asanas could work for different individuals with different problems and which to avoid. We will also include how to work effectively with breathing and techniques for the mind (using the koshas), in order to help relieve pain, mobilise and strengthen the spine, rehabilitation and problem prevention.

A short video description.

    Thank you so much for a brilliant weekend. I really enjoyed the whole experience on so many different levels and different reasons.
    I have only ever wanted people to be safe, to feel better and to only ever have the best experience of yoga. Everything you taught to us made sense and it gave me confidence. Confidence that what I have taught in my classes so far is correct. You have given to me, through your own experience, a better understanding of peoples issues and a more improved set of skills to use with them. – Carole G
