Information about the course
Do students with lower back problems attend your general classes? Do you sometimes feel you don’t have enough knowledge to integrate them into your class? Did your 200-hour training feel a little ‘light’ on anatomy and conditions of the low back? Do you sometimes worry that yoga might make back pain worse?
Would you like to feel REALLY confident when dealing with students with low back pain and be sure that the yoga practices you are teaching are going to HELP them?
This specialist 4-day course will provide you with the skills to offer a Yoga for BackCare class, improving your knowledge, raising your confidence and making you a safer yogi and yoga teacher.
This immersive course aims to furnish teachers with knowledge of anatomy, conditions, red flags relating to lower back pain, contraindications and postures to avoid, as well as modifications and more. It will increase understanding of reasons for lower back pain and provide ready-made routines to teach to improve the health of the low back.
Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints in the adult population, and the most frequent reason to visit the GP. Research shows that appropriate yoga practice can both prevent and improve lower back pain. As teachers we also know of spinal injuries caused by or exacerbated by inappropriate yoga practice and this course will help you to make both your and your student’s practice safer.
This course has a maximum of 23 places to ensure detailed teaching time. It includes pre-course anatomy revision materials. This practical and interactive course contains a mix of knowledge, increased understanding and skill development, taught in an accessible mix of presentation, discussion, small group work and workshop style asana.
Anji Gopal is a yoga teacher and trainer, osteopath and NHS clinician. She is a low back pain specialist in an NHS hospital, where she developed and runs an innovative yoga-based clinic.
