About Yoga

Stacks Image 125274
Yoga are the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines that aim to transform body and mind. The term denotes a variety of schools and practices, the best-known being Hatha yoga and Raja yoga. The term yoga is derived from the literal meaning of "yoking together" a span of horses or oxen, but came to be applied to the "yoking" of mind and body.
Apart from the spiritual goals, the physical postures of yoga are used to alleviate health problems, reduce stress and make the spine supple. Yoga is also used as a complete exercise program and physical therapy routine.

Yoga for Healthy Lower Back with Anne and Mercede

The ‘Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs’ (YHLB) programme and trial was developed at the University of York and funded by the charity Arthritis Research UK. Input to the programme was from Yoga teachers with an interest in low back pain including John Aplin (Professor of Reproduction Biomedicine at Manchester University) who has taught yoga for many years and Jennifer Klaber-Moffat (Professor of Rehabilitation and Therapies at The University of Hull) the advisor for EU Guidelines for Treatment for Low Back Pain.

The programme was trialled over 2007-2010. The results were encouraging with a significant reduction in lower back pain which was still seen in the follow up 12 months later.

I was particularly interested in the focus on relaxation which is seen as essential in encouraging the muscles of the back to relax. Much of the work we do as movement specialists is to develop good automatic muscle activation but relaxation is also important.

From this we have developed an ongoing Back Pain Clinic which offers education, exercise and relaxation on a weekly basis. In line with the YHLB research we encourage home practice at least twice a week on an ongoing basis in order to maintain a ‘healthy lower back’. In order to help with home practice we provide online support with videos of the exercises and presentations so you can refresh your knowledge as you learn more about the causes of back pain and the management solutions.

This clinic is suitable for people suffering significant issues with their backs and who would not be able to attend a regular exercise class, but are keen to reduce their pain without the use of drugs.

The Clinic runs on a Monday at 3pm in 12 week courses starting in January and September. Booking ahead is essential.

A continuation class runs in term time on a Monday at 3pm when the course is not running.
