Over 12 weeks you will learn life-long skills to improve the health and strength of your back. Using easy yoga postures and props to aid comfort you will learn what to do when you have a painful back episode, as well as how to strengthen your back and increase your mobility. You will learn to bring postural improvements, mental focus and relaxation techniques into your daily life and you will be given resources (a student’s manual, relaxation CD and worksheets) to help you practice independently at home. The course is taught in small groups and no previous experience of yoga is necessary.
