Back Pain Relief: Training with Mike Taylor

No Comments
Hi Friends!

This course gives you a practicable ability to prevent and heal both chronic and acute back pain and injury.

Western medicine works miracles every day with emergency room surgery, antibiotics, and infectious disease. But it struggles with much of what plagues us most, including the stress-related ailments that account for most hospital visits today. Back pain continues to present a big challenge here. So we need something better. And for this, we can head farther East.

Movement is central to nearly every traditional East Asian healing practice, and how we move each day rewires everything about us, from our microbiome to our neurology and gene expression. So let’s begin here.

Get started with No More Back Pain

 

 

What You’ll Find Here

Through a series of instructional and practice videos, reading, exercises, and homework, you’ll learn to use the movement and healing vocabularies of both yoga and tai chi, as well as our human vocabulary – how we navigate through our lives each day – to restore and support the remarkable healing pathways we each have within us.

We’ll share and practice together an approach and techniques that work for a wide variety of common challenges with the back and spine, including joint instability, sciatica, and soft tissue strains and sprains.

 

Who Is This For

Everything we do is designed to help people move more easily from right where they are each day. So wherever you are is a perfect place to begin. This is true for all of our courses, including these online programs.

For teachers and healing professionals, you’ll gain a structure and process for healing that you can share with everyone you reach.

And for everyone, you’ll learn to elicit and support your body’s natural healing response, as well as a variety of techniques specific for preventing and healing back pain.

 

What You Get

Watch: 10 Instructional and Practice Sessions, covering an overall approach to movement and healing through the forms of yoga and tai chi, as well as targeted practices for prevention and healing of back pain.

Read: Session-by-session notes and tips, and a 50-page No More Back Pain manual, that gives additional direction and detail, along with regular homework assignments.

Progress: Everybody learns in their own way, at their own pace, and this course is yours to go through in your own time. We follow an adult learning model with all our trainings, and we’re here to support everyone’s process individually.

Continuing Education Credit: This course counts for 30 hours of credit, Including application to both our Ready-to-Lead and Advanced Leadership Trainings.

Continuous Improvement and Updates: What we do together is always growing and evolving, and people who take our in-person courses each year always notice that it’s different (and better!) every time. The same holds for our online courses. We’ll be continually improving and adding to what we share in the reading and video sessions, and you’ll have ongoing access to this course so you can review whenever you like, and keep progressing over time. This way we all get to grow together here.

Lifetime: Taking good care of yourself is the practice of a lifetime. When you learn to release stress, find harmony in your body and peace in your mind, heal what needs healing, and accomplish challenge with ease, you have something amazing to share.

Looking forward to being a part of your healing journey,

Mike

Finding the right distance. It’s a practice we can feel out and adjust in every moment. Cool thing is when you create a good relationship with yourself, finding the right relationship with others becomes a joy.From @stralayoga training in Berlin a couple years back. We are hoping to be there with a nice group next summer celebrating finding the right relationship.#stralayoga #shiatsu #yogateachertraining #taichi
When we soften, much more becomes possible. #stralayoga #taichi #shiatsu
It’s so easy to stick to habits that are familiar, even when they are destructive. We all have our reasons, our armor and our guard up to protect ourselves against whatever specific formula triggers us. We are afraid if we are more gentle with ourselves, we won’t be braced to defend ourselves, but the opposite is true. Moving like you love yourself in yoga and life is a choice to create a new, lasting habit, a way of being truly you.Tai Chi, nature, science, and the wisdom of your Great Grandmother, remind us when you go to war with yourself, you lose. When you move with whole self harmony towards progress, treating every bad habit you find along the way as a gold mind opportunity to move toward balance, you feel better, your body works better and you have access to more of yourself. You have a chance to do some good.I move like I love myself. It can start with an idea, a mantra, a practice, a way of being. If you choose to let it make a home in you, you will have gone to peace with yourself. Anything is possible.Pic by @jes.lock & @arslanstype @sundanceresort for Rest & Renew Training & Retreat#connection #selflove #wellbeing #stralayoga #taichi
