As someone who suffers from long-term back pain (both upper and lower), and keen to source other treatment methods other than medication, The classes had a very relaxed atmosphere, The instructor, Gill, was very forthcoming to all in the class and she took specific care to identify everyone's concerns, injuries, limits and motivations to provide as much of a personal experience as possible. When I found the time to perform the practices at home, I found it very beneficial for my back pain. I would remind everyone that there is no quick fix for back pain, the simple practices I learned in this course I have tried to incorporate into my everyday routine. The most rewarding aspects from the class which I now try to act on every day, are the breathing techniques and simply having more awareness of my body. If you are suffering from back pain, I would thoroughly recommend this course.
