About the Yoga Back Pain Workshop

Iyengar Yoga is therapeutic for the body and mind. The evolution of Iyengar Yoga as taught by Master Teacher Sharat Arora gives a wonderful practice sequence to release old chronic tensions and heal physical, as well as energetic, misalignments. In this Yoga Workshop we focus specifically on helping a bad back. We concentrate on specific asanas and their modifications to give you the tools to heal your back pain.

This Yoga Workshop is structured around two regular 5-Day Courses, taught by Yoga Master Teacher Sharat Arora.

The curriculum is that of the 5-Day Course but with special modifications and adjustments where needed for those who are on this Yoga for Back Pain Course. In afternoon sessions during the second week new postures will be taught for lower, middle and upper back problems, as well as instruction on how to sit straight and comfortably and how to relax to alleviate tension of the back and body in general.

Who is this Yoga Back Pain Workshop for?

This Yoga Workshop for Back Pain is for anyone suffering any kind of chronic or acute back ache of lower, middle or upper back. If you suffer with lumbago, bulging or herniated discs, scoliosis, lordosis/kyphosis and hips or other imbalances leading to back pain then this is the course for you. It is not a course in learning to treat back pain as a yoga therapist.
