Yoga Practice for Stability

NICE recommends group exercise like Yoga for first stage treatment for low back pain and sciatica

"NICE's updated guideline on low back pain and sciatica recommends exercise in all its forms - for example stretching, strengthening, aerobics or yoga - as the first step in managing the condition.
The guideline also recommends encouraging people to continue with normal activities as far as possible."

This is the start of the press release for the guideline which was published on 30 November 2016.

Yoga for healthy lower backs - new course in January

Focusing on low back care, posture, strengthening core areas and self-management, this 12 week course which was assessed by NICE, is an excellent way of working towards a pain and trouble free back.

The course helps you to strengthen and stretch areas of the back and surrounding joints and to understand more about how to manage your back for the long term. Weekly relaxation practice and working with breathing helps in reducing tension and stress.

Why is one-to-one Yoga different to a Yoga class?

Individual Yoga focuses on how you are, what your abilities are and what you would like or need to work with using Yoga.

We are all different and one-to-one Yoga embraces these differences instead of trying to get us to be an idealised or average person. We can be who we are and we start from where we are, when we practice Yoga
like this.
