Yoga and Mindfulness for Back Pain Workshop

with Liz Cooper

Sunday 18 April 2021

Join Liz in this special three hour workshop to address, practice alleviating and become more skilled and empowered to manage, and potentially heal, your back pain.

You'll learn about how chronic pain impacts our body-mind and how yoga and mindfulness techniques can greatly improve your mindset, your mobility, as well as reduce your symptoms.

"Yoga is the fountain of youth. You're only as young as your spine is flexible" - Bob Harper

As we go through life, we accumulate stress in our spine from injury or repetitive movements which causes us limited mobility, creates pain and impacts on our ability to enjoy life.

This practical workshop will give you a clear understanding and awareness of how your spine moves and teach you how to manage different types of pain and discomfort to function better in daily life.

As well as being an experienced teacher of yoga and mindfulness, Liz (pictured above) lives with a spinal injury and chronic pain, following an accident several years ago. Lis is currently completing her Masters in Psychology and her research includes both mindfulness and pain studies. She has used yoga, mindfulness and meditation to live a happy and fulfilling life. She is a warm, compassionate teacher and has first-hand wisdom, experience and tips to share in helping you!
