Yoga for Low Back Pain

Aug. 29–30 and Sep. 26–27
with Dr. Loren Fishman

Price: $500.00

In this online workshop, Dr. Fishman will explain seven basic causes of low back pain and teach you how to identify the proper one, relieve the pain it produces, and also how to avoid the things that bring on pain in the first place.

This course is designed to help participants with their own back pain, aid them in understanding and alleviating back pain in others, and in using Yoga in ways that relieve and prevent future back pain. This straightforward approach uses anatomy but requires no previous study. Because the course is online, you’ll learn to teach the important poses by virtually teaching one another, which may be a novel approach for you, but one that has been successfully used before in many cases.

Back pain can bewilder even seasoned therapists. This is partially because back pain and sciatica are symptoms and rational treatment requires finding the cause!

Dr. Fishman has seen more than 20,000 patients with back pain, written five books on Yoga for back pain, and a large number of academic papers. Dr. Fishman and Liz Larson do webinars every week, and have perfected a technique for giving individual attention over the Internet.


On each day, you will have access to:

  • Live sessions with Dr. Loren Fishman at 9–11:30 am and 2–4:30 pm EDT
  • Integral Yoga Hatha videos and 5 pm Live Yoga classes
  • Meditation videos
  • Inspirational talk videos by Sri Swami Satchidananda


In addition, you will have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

Assistant: Liz Larson

M.D., B.Phil. (Oxon.)

Dr. Loren M. Fishman

Dr. Fishman is Medical Director of Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in New York City, author of ten books and more than 90 academic articles, and a world-recognized pioneer in the use of Yoga in medical conditions and the treatment of lower back pain and piriformis syndrome. He spent three years in India before going to medical school and has used Yoga to reverse the deficits of rotator cuff syndrome, straighten the scoliotic spine, actually strengthen osteoporotic bones, and aid in medical conditions as diverse as insomnia, obesity, and restless leg syndrome. Other non-surgical interventions relieve plantar fasciitis, arrest the development of bunions, and retard the progress of arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

In addition to his private practice, Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, he is Associate Editor of Topics in Geriatric Rehabilitation, on the staff at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, and a past president of the New York Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr. Fishman has an advanced degree in Philosophy from Oxford University.

He has conducted clinical trials on the efficacy of physical therapy and two types of botulinum neurotoxin and has also been a specialist in electrodiagnosis of entrapment syndromes, radiculopathies and sciatica for over 25 years. In addition, he has worked with artificial intelligence and machine learning to predict the trajectory and end-points of inpatient recovery in order to properly gauge hospital length of stay and reduce readmissions.
