Workshop with Snow – Healing the Lower Back

Today, many people who suffer chronic lower-back pain invest a lot of money and time pursuing the magical cure, but are often disappointed by the lack of results. To fundamentally address back issues, one must first understand the human body and use and care for it properly.

Practicing yoga, under the right guidance, can effectively eliminate back pain. However, many patients don’t know how to approach yoga properly: they don’t know how to incorporate yoga into their daily life; they are wary of the potential risks; they are afraid that activities may bring further pain.

 Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar once said that “Pain is also a good teacher.” In this workshop, our seasoned teachers will share some of the Iyengar yoga methods designed to heal the back. The postures to be introduced will be simple, but fundamental and effective.

The Iyengar method must be taught while considering a combination of elements: knowledge of the student’s lifestyles and physical attributes, characteristics of different body types, and principles of physical therapy. All these help constitute a strong basis for successfully healing the lower back.
