YHLB Teacher Search (by county, town, name)

To find a teacher, please contact them individually to ask to be put on the Wait-List for their next 12-week YHLB course.  

(Those in brackets are not currently teaching YHLB.)  

Please note – you will need to pre-book for courses, ideally at least a month or two before a course start-date, so please make contact early to express your interest.

Yoga teachers listed  are already qualified and experienced yoga teachers who have additionally trained  in the specific specialised evidence-based ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs’ programme.

GO TO: YHLB REGISTER PAGE – TO FIND A FULL LIST OF YHLB TEACHERS LISTED BY COUNTY (INCLUDING THOSE IN TRAINING WHO MAY ALSO BE TEACHING YHLB IN THE LOWER ‘TRAINEE’ SECTION)

How to Use this Table

There are 2 different ways of searching:
Method 1. Use 1st search box and click red button below labelled “County” for a ‘drop down’ list of counties.  Select a county to see list of local teachers.  (N.B. Multiple counties can be selected, cumulatively.  As each county filter is selected, it will appear in a blue list below the red button. To remove a county “filter”, hover over that county, a line will appear over that county, then click to remove that county name.)
Method 2.  Use 2nd search box to search for town, city or teacher name.

The very best way to learn how to help the health of your lower back through the ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs’ (YHLB) programme is to attend the 12-class YHLB course taught by a trained and qualified YHLB teacher, along with the YHLB Resources Pack (book, practice sequences, hand-outs and Relaxation tracks).

This single course will empower you to self-manage your back comfort and health for the long-term (forever!?).  Expect to gain additional positive mental and physical health benefits.

The Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs has been assessed and approved as a ‘British Wheel of Yoga’ (yoga governing body for Sport England and Sport & Recreation Alliance UK) Recognized Centre for excellence in training and standards’.  

Alison Trewhela (University of York lead yoga consultant and YHLB programme designer) continues to train teachers in the Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs programme.  Teachers listed on this YHLB Teachers’ Register are self-employed.

We apologize if there is currently no teacher in your area.  We met our aim to have 300 trained in the UK by the end of 2013 and we are continuing to build on demand, maintain standards and quality whilst supporting existing teachers.  You could ask a few experienced yoga teachers in your area if they would be willing to train.

Methods to find a Teacher:

  1. Use the Search boxes above.
  2. Search and contact teachers in the TRAINED AND QUALIFIED TEACHERS ON YHLB REGISTER PAGE.  Teachers are listed by County (and Country, e.g. WALES).
  3. As in 2 above, but also check and contact teachers in the TRAINEE YHLB TEACHERS section towards the bottom of the page for teachers, listed by County.  These are potentially looking for students to teach their first course under mentor support.
  4. Coming soon – Interactive Map of UK Teachers (N.B. Trainee Teachers listed below will not show on this Map, but they may be teaching YHLB, so please Trainee section below)
  5. Search and contact teachers through Regional Team Pages (shown directly below, at the top of the register if there is a relevant downloadable Team Page for your area)…. or

PLEASE NOTE – DISCLAIMER:-  In order to teach this yoga programme effectively and safely, the experienced yoga teachers who taught for the trial were fully trained in how to deliver the 12 class plans in this specialised ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs’ course. We take no responsibility for anyone trying to teach without having prior training in this programme nor for anyone following this yoga without being taught by someone specifically trained via the specialised ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs’ Teacher Training Course.  This yoga programme was designed for those with general ‘non-specific’ recurring/episodic/persistent low back pain.

 

Complaints:  Contact us via [email protected] if you have any reason to want to make a complaint about the conduct of any YHLB teacher.  Thank You.
