I can remember when I first started seeing private clients as a pretty new yoga teacher. My toolbox was full of yoga, so that's what everybody got. But every now and then I would have a client who had something really wrong with them (a herniated disc, or some kind of nerve pain), and to be honest, my toolbox didn't have enough variety or knowledge in it for me to make any real impact. I knew how to not hurt them, but not much else.
.
What I'm saying is: I wish I knew then what I know now. And that's why Laurel, Trina and I have made Movement Logic - to broaden and varietize (not a word, but let's go with it) your toolbox so that you CAN be impactful with students and clients who are in pain and are looking to you for help. I wish something like Movement Logic had existed for me back then.
.
Right now we're in pre-sale, with a discounted price that will go up when we launch May 8th. If you feel like your toolbox is lacking, time to get your hands on some free videos and access the pre-sale price for our low back pain tutorial.

ANYTHING CAN RELIEVE PAIN

Are You Obsessed With One Solution?

If you or your students have low back pain, you may have found a solution that “works” for you: hot bath, Tylenol, massage, an evening cocktail (no judgements!) as an analgesic (pain reliever).

But how much relief are you or they really getting? Do you need that cocktail every night (again, no judgements!) to get yourself out of pain?

If you’re looking to help your students find a more permanent solution, sign up for our FREE 7 part video series and learn:

1️⃣How anything can be an analgesic.

2️⃣How to know if you’re overusing your “fix”.

3️⃣What your other pain-relieving options should be.

Like most ‘yoga people,’ I spent years and years stretching my hamstrings with forward folds. Now, my work is to try and re-balance that repetitive stretching with strengthening, and I use the RedCord system at work as part of the training. You can see how hard this is for me, even with the sling support that makes sure I’m not compensating or aggravating my old hamstring injury (from that time I was pushing myself into a pose and heard a pop in the back of my leg).
.
By the way - I still practice yoga, and I still do forward folding poses. But it’s not every day, and it’s part of a varied movement diet (this past month I practiced Kung Fu, Zumba, trampoline, and dance, as well as weekly hikes with the pup.
.
How do you vary your movement diet?
