Are these sessions for everyone?

These sessions are appropriate for all causes of back pain, provided there is no nerve pain going down one or both legs. Yoga therapy can also be beneficial for back pain conditions that impact nerves, (for example caused by a herniated disc or spondylolisthesis), but this requires an individual approach, at least initially. Do contact me on my contact page to discuss whether this course is for you.

Testimonials:

“Bene shows her expertise and amazing attention to detail through her online yoga classes, which bring her into your living room and make you feel as though it’s a personal 1-2-1 session. She always has something new and interesting for you and listens to how you’re feeling and what you need. I always sleep so well on a yoga day and I know how to manage my back issues.” Sue

“What Bene does brilliantly is focus, gently, on the individual in a class situation. Everyone is encouraged to do each move, or a variation, that suits them, depending on their ability on that day. She’ll encourage you to do more too, if she thinks you can! The benefits I feel from Bene’s yoga classes are immeasurable. Back ache, tension around the neck and shoulders, and a long-standing pain in my right shoulder have disappeared almost without my noticing. A strengthened core and a greater sense of well-being seem also to have crept magically into my life.” Beryl

“Bene gives very clear explanations and demonstrations of positions and moves. No one is left behind. I always feel relaxed, good and much more flexible after her classes. As well as her yoga expertise, she uses her knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy to address the class and individual’s issues and, even though we are remote, it works! I would wholeheartedly recommend Bene’s online classes.” Edmund
