Yoga Therapy for Back and Joint Pain

Next: Sep 15 – 17, 2017

Yoga Therapist Nicole DeAvilla and experienced yoga teachers from the Ananda Yoga Therapist Training Program will evaluate and assist you in creating a personalized Yoga Therapy program to take home.

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

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.

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.
