Yoga for Low Back Pain – Online

with Loren M. Fishman, M.D., B.Phil. (Oxon.)

August 29 - September 27, 2020

All-day Saturday and Sunday
Aug. 29–30 and Sep. 26–27, 2020

In this online workshop, Dr. Fishman will explain seven basic causes of low back pain and teach you how to identify the proper one, relieve the pain it produces, and also how to avoid the things that bring on pain in the first place.

This course is designed to help participants with their own back pain, aid them in understanding and alleviating back pain in others, and in using Yoga in ways that relieve and prevent future back pain. This straightforward approach uses anatomy but requires no previous study. Because the course is online, you’ll learn to teach the important poses by virtually teaching one another, which may be a novel approach for you, but one that has been successfully used before in many cases.

Back pain can bewilder even seasoned therapists. This is partially because back pain and sciatica are symptoms and rational treatment requires finding the cause!

Dr. Fishman has seen more than 20,000 patients with back pain, written five books on Yoga for back pain, and a large number of academic papers. Dr. Fishman and Liz Larson do webinars every week, and have perfected a technique for giving individual attention over the Internet.

On each day, you will have access to:

  • Live sessions with Dr. Loren Fishman at 9–11:30 am and 2–4:30 pm EDT
  • Integral Yoga Hatha videos and 5 pm Live Yoga classes
  • Meditation videos
  • Inspirational talk videos by Sri Swami Satchidananda

In addition, you will have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

Assistant: Liz Larson
