Heal your Back Intensives,

Saturday. Plagued with back pain? Revitalize and strengthen your back. Stimulate healing by learning how to bring fresh oxygen, blood and nerve energy into your back and torso. Forrest Yoga teaches poses created specifically to heal and strengthen your back. Work, sweat, and attain freedom from back pain.

Sunday. One thing I really love about Forrest Yoga is the way that it teaches back-bending. Are you frightened of these poses? Don’t be. In this class, I’ll teach back-bends that are accessible to everyone, and at the same time offers a challenge to everyone. Your ability to do wheel is not a prerequisite. Whether you think your back is healthy, or you’re sure it’s a wreck, there is something for everyone in this class.

9-11am Intensives: £30

Back Care Clinic: Come to this short, gentle, and therapeutic class founded on the principles and sequencing of Forrest Yoga. You'll find no "intensity" here, though--unless its the kind you find by going deep inside. This class is perfect for you if you are injured, or over 40, or would like to do a therapeutic class which involves moving, but not too much. 

1-2pm £10


The Yoga Clinic Back Care Introductory Module: Back pain. Back injury. Alas--these are realities of having a back. If you're a yoga teacher, since everyone has a back, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with common causes of back pain, and how to handle them. In this short, 8-hour introduction to The Yoga Clinic, you will get a little bit of everything: 

~Introduction to Common Causes of Back Pain

~Introduction to Common Back Injuries 

~Basic Anatomy of Common Pathologies 

~Introduction to the Path of the Healer 

~ The Anatomy of a Private Session 

~3 Creative Strategies and 2 Healing Principles to Help Your Private Clients and Students 

~Best Practices for Helpful Hands on Assists

2:30-5:30 Price for the whole weekend; £235
