Therapeutic Yoga for Lower Back Pain

Join Libby Hinsley, PT and Yoga Therapist, for two half-day workshops on therapeutic yoga.

9am-12:30pm: Therapeutic Yoga for Lower Back Pain
1:30pm-5pm: Therapeutic Yoga for Neck & Shoulders

In the morning session, we will explore common causes of low back pain, and then experience a practice designed to be therapeutic for the low back, hips, and pelvis. There will be plenty of time for questions about specific practice modifications for a variety of diagnoses affecting the low back, and ample discussion on using yoga practices to support greater ease, comfort, and healing to people with low back pain.

This workshop counts for Yoga Alliance CEUs for Registered Yoga Instructors.

Workshop is $70 for one session or $125 for both
