I will be running a specialised 12-week course of Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs based on one of the largest yoga research studies to date, conducted by The University of York and funded by Arthritis Research UK.
Back discomfort is a common problem and over 80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives. This gentle, evidence-based, specially-modified yoga course is an effective and innovative way to improve back health and function. The course is designed to teach you the skills to improve health and well-being through a process of self-management techniques.
This Yoga course is suitable for everyone regardless of age, size, weight, gender as long as you can get up and down to a mat even if you need the assistance of a chair, you will be able to reap the short and long-term benefits from the exercises learnt.

You do not need any previous Yoga experience
The yoga sessions will be held weekly on a Tuesday evening from 19:00 – 20:15 at The Ockment Centre, North Street, Okehampton. There will be a two-week break to allow time for home practice and reflection.
