Product description


This book gives a comprehensive account of a ground breaking piece of research conducted by the York Trials Unit, Department of Health Sciences at the University of York, funded by Arthritis Research UK. To date it is the largest piece of research done on yoga as a remedial aid. There are ten million people in the UK who are suffering from arthritis and related conditions. The aim of the trial was to assess the role of yoga in pain relief for this group of people. The results were exciting for yoga practitioners and arthritis sufferers. They showed a statistically and clinically significant improvement in the yoga group compared to the non-yoga group, all having started from much the same base. The most dramatic improvement was after the first three months. There is an excellent chapter on What to do if you get a sign of a painful back episode, which begins "Don't panic"! Even if you read nothing else in the book, these suggestions are worth a look. They are helpful, basic, sensible and safe. Advice is offered for different types of painful backs. This book is an impressive record of a project which will surely encourage the use of yoga as a remedial tool in the future. --Positive Health Online

Recently used in one of the biggest yoga studies ever into the effectiveness of yoga for lower back pain, this excellent book provides pain relief poses, and a core and progressive programme of yoga poses to aid rehabilitation and prevent future episodes. The book contains clear instructions and colour photography of each pose, and covers many handy topics including how to find a yoga teacher, committing to your yoga practice and the anatomy of the back. --Yoga Magazine

Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs by Alison Trewhela and Anna Semlyen is a fantastic resource for therapists and clients to take care of their backs in an active and fun way. The book offers advice on daily activities, poses for sore backs, general poses to improve your core and how yoga can impact your life for the better. The book includes an array of images with clear descriptions including breath, variations, movements and mantras for each pose. You'll be saying, "Ahhhhhh" when you get this book in your hands. --Massage World magazine
