Low Back Pain?

“A life-changing experience, after years of frustration.”

“The CD is like magic – feels as if I’m stuffed full of painkillers.”

“Before I felt I was on a depressing, downward spiral of degeneration, but what I have learnt on this course has made me so positive about my future.”

The ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs’ (YHLB) programme is designed to

teach you to help yourself to

improved comfort, health and well-being for the long-term.


Help Yourself.

We believe the specialised YHLB 12-class course can empower you.

c.80% of people experience low back pain (chronic, recurring, episodic or persistent).

Many do not realise there are things they can do to help themselves.

63% improvement in managing / coping with their back pain on their own +

decreases in: Pain, depression, anxiety (YHLB Course Attendees in Cornwall 2015 study)


Why YHLB? – Uniquely Strong Evidence-Base and Specific.

The enjoyable, specialised 12 yoga classes plus

accompanying Resources Pack (book, Relaxation audio tracks, practice sheets, hand-outs)

= the same as those used successfully in our research.

Registered teachers are trained by the same research trainer.

As in the original research, they teach the same course

according to the same 12 class plans

contained within the same Teachers’ Manual

and know how to teach you to adapt /personalize the yoga for you.

YHLB worked in the research and is continuing to work well for people now.


Recommended self-management backcare choice –

Well-structured mind-body group exercise, such as this gentle YHLB course, is now recommended for managing low back pain.

Health professionals, such as GPs, pain/physiotherapist/spinal consultants, osteopaths and physiotherapists are now signposting to this specific evidence-based YHLB course.

Consider asking local yoga teachers if they would be willing to do our training.
