Yoga For Healthy Lower Backs (YHLB) 12 week course

12 Week evidence based programme specially designed to manage and improve chronic or intermittent lower back pain.  It's an enjoyable, gentle, effective, beginner friendly course based on a study conducted by the University of York with Arthritis Research UK.

Who is this course suitable for?

  • Those who like the prospect of learning methods for “getting back control of their back condition” and want to learn ways to help themselves.
  • Those looking for a kind and gentle, person-centred approach to improve their back condition.
  • Those whose back pain has become chronic, e.g. persistent pain or pain that is there the majority of the time.
  • Those whose back pain comes and goes (recurring/episodic), e.g. several bouts each year.  Don’t wait until your next episode of bad back pain – start now.
  • Anyone prepared to commit to weekly classes, which teach you to incorporate some yoga skills into your daily life.
  • Holistic approach – particularly beneficial for those who have:
    1. stress/emotional factors (which may contribute to back pain experience)
    2. injuries or health conditions that prevent participation in other exercise or sports
    3. multiple conditions, e.g. headaches, hip replacement, high blood pressure (your teacher will show you modifications for maximum holistic benefit).
