YOGA AND BACKCARE CERTIFICATION PROGRAM

Most of us sit all day long on chairs, bending and slouching forward, looking down into tablets and cell phone displays. Over time, holding these abnormal postures results in a host of dysfunctions, especially neck pain.

This is a great opportunity to learn as both a student and as a teacher how to practice yoga and find relief when suffering from back, shoulder and neck pain.
