Led by Nicole DeAvilla
Yoga Therapy for Back and Joint Pain
There are no dates currently scheduled.
Yoga has long been recognized as an accepted therapy for back pain. Did you know that Yoga can also help with knee, shoulder, and hip pain as well? Therapeutic yoga can help to:
- relieve pain
- increase strength
- increase flexibility and range of motion in all of your joints
- reduce the risk of re-injury
In this weekend workshop you will work with Yoga Therapist Nicole DeAvilla and experienced yoga teachers that are in the Ananda Yoga Therapy Training Program. Under Nicole’s expert guidance you will be matched with yoga teachers who will evaluate and assist you in developing a personalized Yoga Therapy program for you to take home.
We'll use Ananda Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and special therapeutic exercises to work with conditions such as:
- Weak or injured joints (Come prepared to tell us if your health care practitioner recommends any movement restrictions)
- Chronic inflexibility
- Post-surgical recovery (You must have had at least 8 weeks’ recovery since knee or hip replacement surgery)
Instructor Nicole DeAvilla has taught Ananda Yoga for over 20 years and has a background in sports medicine and chiropractic physiotherapy.
Prices are all-inclusive and cover accommodations, meals, classes or activities, and course materials. You can add extra personal retreat days before and/or after your program. Check availability and costs for the days and accommodations that you require.
Yoga Therapy for Back and Joint Pain starts the afternoon of the first date listed. It’s ideal to arrive before 4 pm, if you are able to. That way, you can join in the afternoon session of yoga and meditation, which begins at 4:45 pm. Dinner is at 6:30. The first real gathering of your group is at 7:30 pm. If you need to arrive here after 5 pm, that’s fine, but it helps us if you let us know at 800-346-5350. We can also put aside a dinner for you if you need to arrive after 7 pm. The program ends with lunch on the last date. Please see our Daily Schedule.
