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.”

If you happen to be one of the majority of people who suffer from low back pain from time to time, then we believe this social enterprise website can help you.  The resources (book and CD) and the 12-week yoga course we mention were used successfully for newcomers to yoga with non-specific low back pain in our research and we are making efforts to make the courses widely available.
