Yoga for Lower Back Pain:
Keys to Sacroiliac Stability
“ . . . no anatomical structure functions in isolation, and the mechanical load anywhere in the body is distributed through a continuous network of fascia, ligaments and muscles supporting the entire skeleton. . . focusing on singular anatomical structures to comprehend lumbopelvic pain, rather than considering the spine and pelvis as an integrated, interdependent and dynamic biological structure, might ‘blind’ the observer to the larger picture.”

What is Covered?
Enrol in this mini tutorial series with Donna Farhi because sacroiliac joint discomfort, pain or dysfunction is the most common problem Donna sees when teaching around the world. So much so, she jokingly says, "I could run sacroiliac intensives every week, and still have waiting lists!"
Donna is excited to offer this mini tutorial series where she gives an introduction to topics including:
Non-Negotiable Body Contracts: How Making Agreements with Yourself is the Path to Healing Your SI Joint pain (Tutorial 1)
Sweet Relief from Sacroiliac and Lower Back Pain: Sofa Pose! (Tutorial 4)
How One of the Most Common Yoga Instructions can Destroy your Sacroiliac Joints (Tutorial 7)
Why Stretching is Not the Answer to Sacroiliac Pain (Tutorial 8)
Low Back Pain or Sacroiliac Pain? How to Reset Your Pelvis. (Tutorial 10)
The first video tutorial will be available on the 16th May, and a new video released every two days.
There is over an hour of free teaching from Donna, with valuable content you can use immediately to help resolve your own sacroiliac issues, or those of your students.
What others say...
Highly Recommended for Anybody Who Teaches or Practices Any Kind of Movement.
This course is compulsory viewing for all yoga teachers and practitioners who are interested in healthy functional movement in their asana practice and in life generally, and less distracted by the shiny theatrics of extreme postures. I would highly recommend this course, not just for yoga practitioners with pelvic instability and SIJ issues, but anybody who teaches or practices any kind of movement. It presents a very comprehensive understanding of the pelvis and sacrum, and the intricate relationship they share, with beautiful illustrations and easy to understand explanations. The practice sessions are very well demonstrated and any of the exercises could be easily incorporated into a class or personal practice. Donna’s many years of in-depth practice, exploration, knowledge and personal experience are evident, and this course content will become a most valuable resource.
Donna Farhi is One Expert That I Trust Wholeheartedly
Participaiting in Donna Farhi's newest online training, "Yoga for Lower Back Pain" gave me such a feeling of relief. It was not just relief for my own back pain, but relief in the knowledge that this important information is getting to yoga teachers and students. I often worry about the harm we may unknowingly be doing as yoga teachers when we don't apply the current knowledge of body mechanics. Of course, staying current is very challenging, and it's hard to know which "expert" to trust. But Donna Farhi is one expert that I trust wholeheartedly, not just because of her incredible knowledge and skills, but because of her personal experience with injury and using yoga for healing.
Resigned from the SIJ Club.
THANK YOU DONNA! I have learned SO much and I have cut up my membership card to the SIJ Club! I have also had chronic hip pain off and on for years in my front left hip flexor . As I have been applying the principles and doing the practices I have NO MORE hip pain. Wow!
Enrol now. While the course has started you can catch up...but only until the 8th June, then they're gone.
