Friday, 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm, Viniyoga Therapy for Structural Conditions
Over 100 billion dollars are spent annually in the United States on back pain. In December 2005, the Annals of Internal Medicine reported that yoga is an effective treatment for chronic back pain. These results were found in a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the yoga protocol in that study was designed by Gary Kraftsow using the gentle approach of Viniyoga. This methodology will be used as the basis to learn and experience specific therapeutic sequences for the lower back, sacrum and hips, as well as the upper back, neck and shoulders, and is designed for therapists, teachers, and individuals who suffer from any type of back pain.
