Share with Others This Holiday Season

You may have been thinking of investing in your own back health this holiday season. Now, Yoga with Lillah has a way for you to do so and to also benefit those who are in recovery. For every book purchased for your own use or as a gift, Lillah’s 2 DVD set will be donated to one of the recovery centers listed below. For local sales, see locations below.

Back Pain Facts

Here are the sobering facts:

  • Low back and neck pain are increasingly widespread, affecting one in eight Americans.
  • Low back pain is one of the leading causes of disability in the U.S. and one of the leading causes of missed work.
  • Back pain treatments cost the US $88 billion a year—the third highest bill for any health condition—despite evidence most treatments do not work.

Moreover, the opioid crisis—though certainly of great concern—has caused the national conversation to focus largely on reducing opioid prescriptions, rather than on finding safe, non-drug alternatives. 

Study Finds Yoga Helps with Back Pain Relief

However, there is promising news: a study released in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2016 stressed the importance and effectiveness of mind-body solutions to combat back pain. In addition, according to a 2017 study conducted by the Annals of Internal Medicine, about half the back pain sufferers in the study who practiced yoga achieved reduced pain and disability, and about half reduced their drug use. 

But these findings are not a surprise to me as a noted back pain specialist and yoga teacher. I have, for decades, seen first-hand how pain-free living is possible through yoga. Now I share my knowledge and techniques in a new book, Healing Our Backs with Yoga: An Essential Guide to Back Pain Relief, released in 2016. Known to my students and clients as the “Back Whisperer,” I am a Certified Yoga Therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapy.

Healing Our Backs with YogaNatural Treatment for Your Back Health

To help you with your back health, let me introduce you to Healing Our Backs with Yoga: An Essential Guide to Back Pain Relief. The attractive 185-page illustrated guidebook offers 24 pose sequences I developed to minimize pain in the hips, lower back, and neck/shoulders. Healing Our Backs with Yoga is informed by my 30-year study of the Iyengar method of yoga, decades of teaching yoga back care classes, a background in massage and cranial-sacral therapy, and my training and experience in functional anatomy and physiology.

 

“My book is not a list of what is wrong with your back, but rather a practical and proven approach to what you can do to make friends with your back and feel better within weeks. When you learn the basics of anatomy, posture, and alignment, and understand how to apply the fundamental movement principles to your particular situation, you can more successfully manage and support the healing process and relieve your back pain. Then life can be good again!”

When you purchase a copy of Healing Our Backs with Yoga: An Essential Guide to Back Pain Relief, my 2 Therapeutic Yoga DVD set will be donated to one of the following substance abuse organizations in Asheville North Carolina: Center for Spiritual Emergence , Light a Path, and Crest View Recovery Center. My book is $22.95 plus shipping. When you add the two DVD set into the retail price, this would be over a $50 purchase. Help yourself and multiply your dollars to help others!
