Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs

Backache is a common problem.  Now there is an evidence-based way to improve back health and function.  The “Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs” programme is 30% better than usual care.  It aims to gently and progressively get sufferers towards being more active again.

The University of York (York Trials Unit, Department of Health Sciences) ran one of the largest research studies into yoga to date, funded by Arthritis Research UK.  Teachers from the Iyengar Yoga Association (UK) and British Wheel of Yoga designed and ran specialist group classes in five areas of the UK for chronic back pain.  The positive results were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in November 2011.

Who are Classes for?

The yoga was designed for people with chronic/recurring non-specific low back pain.  Please ask your GP whether this gentle, specially-adapted yoga course is appropriate.

Yoga Class Format

The course comprises of 12 x 75 min classes.  Gentle yoga poses involve sitting on a chair, standing, kneeling or lying on the floor on a yoga mat.  Props such as a yoga block, a blanket or belt are used to aid effectiveness and comfort.  Learn life-long skills to improve mental and physical health.  

How does Yoga compare to other treatments?

When compared with other quality research, the scientific results for this programme found yoga to be one of the most effective options available relative to other mainstream and complementary treatments.  Lesson for lesson is better than all other rigorously researched back health treatments.  Yoga is often taught in groups and is therefore very cost-effective.

Workplace Yoga

Yoga reduces sick leave due to backache (by 9 days p.a.) and stress. Employers can arrange a weekly class, for instance, at lunch-time or after-work.
