Yoga Rehab: Healing Lower Back Pain with Dr. Loren Fishman
Sunday, September 14, 2014
From 11:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M.
Early Bird, till 9/1 $115. After $145.
We will explore some major causes of back pain to gain a better understanding of these different pain-generating mechanisms as well as yoga postures to help manage, alleviate, and even cure symptoms. This cannot be done without knowledge of the causes, since very different conditions may cause the same symptoms, and have different, even opposite treatments. We will discuss movements that are beneficial for each condition as well as movements to be avoided for each of them. Learn to modify your yoga practice to facilitate healing and avoid causing these problems in the first place.
This workshop is suitable for anyone suffering lower back pain or wishes to avoid it, and those people who work with those with pain, including:
– Yoga Practitioners
– Yoga Teachers and Yoga Therapists
– Body Workers
– Physical Therapists and other Medical Practitioners
Dr. Fishman integrates yoga into his physical medicine and rehabilitation practice in New York City. He has conducted clinical trials studying the benefits of yoga for osteoporosis, piriformis syndrome, and rotator cuff tears, and is considered a creative pioneer in the field of yoga therapy. Author of six books about yoga and medical conditions, Loren studied yoga with B. K. S. Iyengar for a year in India, and has practiced yoga daily since.
