Yoga for Back Pain
I entered into my career with the dream of integrating yoga into the healthcare system. I wanted to provide patients with better options to access yoga in a therapeutically safe and effective way that reflected the specific needs of their condition.
What Makes This Programming Unique?
Yoga for Back Pain is a structured, progressive yoga program that combines education, movement, and meditation that is specific to back pain. It integrates the most up-to-date information on the medical management of back pain and introduces self-management strategies in the educational component. Yoga postures are specifically sequenced to reflect current rehabilitative strategies prescribed by healthcare providers to assist patients in managing and overcoming their pain. Each class in the program closes with a meditation to enhance self-awareness and reduce physical and mental stress.
Two Options for Accessing Yoga for Back Pain
Available as a 6-week or 12-week option, these clinical yoga programs are offered throughout the year. They are listed as a chiropractic service and are eligible for reimbursement through extended health benefits.
Yoga International Course
