Yoga for a Happy Back, 35 contact hour teacher intensive, provides yoga teachers with the information and tools necessary to safely and effectively teach yoga to individuals with injuries and limitations of the spine, sacrum and related areas, in both group classes and private yoga lessons.

Varied learning modalities—including yoga practice, lecture, hands-on lab, practice teaching and adjustments are used to assist teachers in developing a clear understanding of the functional anatomy and bio-mechanics of the spine, and related areas and their relationship to posture and movement.

The upper back portion covers functional anatomy and bio-mechanics of the cervical spine, thoracic spine and shoulders, clearly explaining the relationship to posture and movement. Through yoga practice and hands-on lab time, teachers will develop a deeper understanding of the bio-mechanics associated with yoga postures and how injuries can develop as a result of incorrect alignment. Teachers will learn specific therapeutic sequences for upper back, neck and shoulder pain including degenerative disc disease, nerve root impingement, reversed cervical curve, rotator cuff tear/tendonitis, bursitis, and thoracic outlet syndrome.

The lower back, pelvis and hip portion will cover the functional anatomy and bio-mechanics of the lumbar spine, sacrum, pelvis and hips and how it relates to posture and movement. Teachers will learn specific therapeutic sequences for conditions including sciatica, disc herniation, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, degenerative disc disease and sacroiliac joint dysfunction as well as be able to identify improper movement and alignment and how those relate to pain and injury.
