Workshop

Yoga for a Healthy Back

Proven Yoga Methods to Alleviate Back Pain

Oct 04 - Oct 06 2019 Rhinebeck, NY
Learn the causes and treatments for back pain in this yoga therapy workshop with Loren Fishman.

There are seven distinct causes of lower back pain. And what works for one condition may actually be harmful to another. Before an effective treatment can begin, the specific cause must first be identified. This is strongly supported in medical and yoga literature.

This workshop enables anyone interested in yoga therapy for the purpose of alleviating back pain to recognize and treat all seven conditions—and distinguish between them. Combining short presentations with slides and experiential practice of therapeutic poses, we learn what it takes to identify and treat conditions such as disc herniation, back muscle spasm, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, piriformis syndrome, facet syndrome, and sacroiliac joint derangement. We also cover scoliosis, although it is not usually a painful condition.

This workshop is open to newcomers, longtime yoga practitioners, yoga teachers, and physical therapists.
