Full Description

Over this weekend, senior yoga teacher Flo Fenton will help us to understand and explore some of the major causes of lower back pain…and how it is often mis-managed. We will look at safe practice principals and injury prevention in our regular practice, as well as learning about the three phases of lower back injury…and what we can do through yoga to manage, and recover from, each stage until full recovery is reached.

This workshop is suitable for anyone who has ever experienced lower back pain, and yoga teachers who would like to deepen their skills in this important area.
