Masterclass - Re-discovering the power of a healthy back

14 September, 2022
(Registration open till December 2025)

Therapeutic Yoga for a Healthy Back 

In this 75-minute Masterclass experienced Yoga Therapists Padma McIntyre and Ruth Boaler will give you a practical experience of Dru Yoga, facilitating your discovery of simple yet highly effective movement approaches for a strong and resilient back.  

They will be exploring with you how to deeply care for your back through naturally increasing your body intelligence and awareness, and sharing exciting approaches to functional core engagement alongside beautiful restorative stretches.

The session includes:

  • Insights into your own unique body signature and posture
  • Myofascial release and specific strengthening movements
  • Asana work modified for back care
  • Relaxing breath work
  • Back-specific visualisation 

This session will be useful for anyone with some experience of Dru Yoga who wants to deepen understanding of a strong and centred body, and to work intelligently with their body to have a healthy and balanced back.

This is a great introduction to the wealth of knowledge and experience you'll gain on the forthcoming Back Care and Wellbeing Course, which is open to Dru Yoga graduates.

I’ve experiences the postures as never before. We looked at them in so much detail I could really see and feel the benefits. Working in pairs was useful with a member of staff on hand to observe.

I enjoyed the energy and enthusiasm of the teachers and the positive vibe. I love learning new things. The workshop was excellent: enlightening and fulfilling.

A big huge thumbs up here for the APD course. It totally blew my mind.

It was such a pleasure to be guided through postures that I thought I knew well, only to discover that they had even more power than I could ever have imagined possible, when you work through them on each Kosha level. 

At times when I'm feeling stuck or uninspired / bored with in my practice, the tools I learnt on the APD course always, without fail, have the ability to out me back on track.

The course was so wonderfully presented, a brilliant mix of guided practice and space to explore for yourself.

I also came away from the experience a much more confident and skillful teacher, and have been able to facilitate my students in deepening there practice as a result.

I find myself eternally grateful to Andrew and the whole APD team for developing and refining this course, it's beyond doubt helped me to develop and refine my own practice.
