Yoga asanas to help treat back pain!

Akshay Bhat

Posted on Apr 30, 2020 therapy

I started my Yoga journey in the year 2008 when I joined Omshantidhama Gurukula (Traditional school). There, I was introduced to yoga by Swami Ramdev. I started my practice with traditional hatha yoga, yoga philosophy, Pranayama, and cleansing techniques (Shatkarmas).

I then learned Vedic chanting in the Gurukula alongside my normal schooling. I started exploring the meanings of the mantras and learned Patanjali yoga sutras with Swami Brahmadev Ji.

When I started teaching yoga, I began through one on one sessions. This spiked my interest in yoga even more. Soon I devoured several yogic texts and joined the yoga instructor cours at Svyasa University, learning about yoga as a spirituality and a science. I also continued with my bachelor in yoga therapy (BSc). While working towards my BSc, I started exploring more aspects of therapy to treat my back pain.

Because of my own experience using yoga to treat my back pain, clients often come to me to treat theirs. In many cases, I’ve given patients relief after just 15 days of yoga practice. Along with yoga therapy, I also learned about the simple meditation technique developed by Dr. H R Nagendra, helpful in calming the mind.

During the time of vacation and Arogyadhama student training in university, I took special interest and took a variety of yoga classes. I also did several personality development camps for kids and taught them yoga and its benefits. After the BSc, I did Yoga Alliance 200 hours course in the Aayana yoga academy where I learned the Vinyasa and Hatha yoga teaching style. Currently, I am doing my Master's degree in Yoga (MSc.) and working with Ruh yoga as a lead Yoga teacher.
