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?

Donna's Instructions are Precise and Well-Paced
Donna makes anatomy more accessible and easier to understand with clear explanations ideal for both budding and more experienced yoga teachers. Her instructions are precise and well-paced, giving students enough time to personally experience the nuanced practice.
Put the Anatomical Wisdom Into Action with Tips to Avoid Common Mistakes
This course is a MUST for any yoga teacher or practitioner. Donna Farhi has compiled an abundance of information to keep students safe and strong in yoga classes. The detailed information about your pelvic structure is presented with clarity and precision. Farhi is at the leading edge of the new trend to keep your body safe while practicing yoga. Upon completion of this course, you will know why we need to protect our sacroiliac joint and why we need to stop the excessive stretching that has become commonplace in yoga. More than Power Points with lecture, Farhi provides practice sessions where you can put the anatomical wisdom into action with tips to avoid common mistakes that many of us make in yoga classes. I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed this course and how simple it was to integrate the information and tools provided. Do not miss this opportunity have happier sacroiliac joints and a life filled with more ease of movement.
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.
