Online Zoom - IST Yoga for a Healthy Back

Tutor: Anna Semlyen

Date: 13th September 2020

Time: 10:00 - 15:45

Location: Online Zoom

Type of Event: CPD Days

Places Available: 1

Back pain is a common condition with nine out of ten people experiencing it at some time in their lives, and yoga is often recommended by health professionals. This training day is useful to those who wish to learn or build on existing knowledge for teaching those with lower back issues as well as those who are considering studying the Lower Back Module. It focuses on yoga practice as medicine, based on research into chronic back pain sufferers at the University of York. The teaching of pain relief and core sequences resulted in a 30% improvement in back function to those offered specialist yoga compared to the control group.


Anna Semlyen was inspired to teach yoga having sustained a broken leg and was impressed at how quickly her injuries healed as a result of her yoga practice. Ten years after qualifying as a BWY teacher she was awarded Specialist Advisor Status on Back Care and Therapeutic Research.
