Hi, Sorry it took me so long to come back to you.
I was a chronic back sufferer with Degenerative Disc at L4-L5 and L5-S1, I had physiotherapy, osteopathic treatment, chiropractic treatment, I had cortisone injection I tried pilates…until I discovered yoga and have increased the number of classes to two-three a week. This is when I noticed that the pain was easing off for 1-2 hrs after the class. I realised that yoga is "THE THING’ for me and I did my TTC with Sivanada and after 1 month in the ashram, I was pain free. Being away from stress, meditating, doing the asanas, having a healthy diet etc, brought about changes that were obviously much needed. Since then I want to make aware other back sufferers of the benefits that yoga can bring. I also did a TTC in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. I teach weekly 2 classes of general yoga and two of ashtanga. Teaching yoga is my part time job-at present. In view of all the above, I am interested in doing either a Structural Therapy Course or Yoga Therapy Course. I cannot afford the time to do a long course, hence I am looking to do a 4-6 weeks course. I have looked into the 18 months course -which in fact is 24 days over 18 month. I much prefer a 4 week residential course say in India - but has to be a well established place. Hope this helps. Many thanks, Livia
