Back Care Workshop with Bronwen Firth

30th July | 8:30 am 12:30 pm

In this practical workshop, Bronwen focuses on the spine, neck and shoulders, our support system and the way we move and connect with the world. More and more people are suffering from chronic and debilitating back pain, which is often not resolved with traditional medical care.  Our sedentary lifestyle, chronic stress, degeneration due to ageing and injury are major causes of back issues. 

Yoga therapy can benefit these chronic conditions and also be preventative. We will learn about how the spine works, what it needs to be healthy, practices that can help including simple movements, breathing practices and relaxation techniques. These can then be done at home as part of a regular programme. Safe, gentle and effective – no Yoga experience needed.

Bronwen is a yoga therapist, trained by The Yoga Therapy Institute in Amsterdam, and the work she does is quite different from a yoga teacher (although she is also a certified yoga teacher). She has been trained in the bio-medical body systems, physiology, nervous system and psychological aspects that make up the multifaceted human being. Yoga Therapy is where modern research, medical studies, psychology and yoga converge – it is a healing art and science, which treats the whole person not only the disease or symptoms.
