See what a Veteran has to say about the Yoga for Low Back Pain class that I teach!
One of the Veterans that regularly takes my Yoga for Low Back Pain class on the Veteran’s Yoga Project had this to say about this class that I teach.
Gail talking. “Hey Don, welcome back! Hope this helped you! Let me know!” Don – Veteran “Yes it always helps! I’m similar to you: chronic back pain for 20-30 years, and since I started doing yoga in Tucson and more recently on-line, my back is much better. Not completely gone, but a heck of a lot better!”
Doesn’t get much better than that!
Even I, a yoga teacher struggled with back pain. Turns out, some of the yoga poses I was doing was contributing to my back pain.
My pain levels were between a 6 – 9. I had to use a cane, and walker at some point.
I investigated in Yoga Vista’s online training for Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care.
I am a convert now. My pain levels are now anywhere’s between a 0 and level 3. For me that is significant.
So this is my niche. I teach Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care. Great for beginners, those new to yoga, and those of us with back challenges.
The yoga class is on Monday at 6 PM CST (think Texas). My hope for you is to feel better.
You might get some other benefits too! Better balance, higher quality sleep, increased flexibility & strength, building bones, better joint mobility, you might even lose weight with a regular practice.
Join me for next week’s class. IF my class time does not match with your schedule a private yoga session, or getting a weekly video for you to do in the privacy of your home might be better for you.
The study echoes previous findings on the benefits of yoga and meditation for chronic pain published in 2016 in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association.
“The bottom line is that patients are seeking new ways to cope with chronic pain and effective non-pharmaceutical treatments are available,” says Dr. Marske. “Our findings show meditation and yoga can be a viable option for people seeking relief from chronic pain.”
