Hold onto your seatbelts - we have some simply amazing news to share with you!

A summary of NICE Guidance on low back pain and sciatica has just been released in the British Medical Journal, alerting us to the wonderful fact that yoga is now expounded as a clear consideration in terms of treatment for this patient group :)

The role of NICE (National Centre for Clinical Excellence) is to improve outcomes for people using the NHS and other public health and social care services. They do this by producing evidence-based guidance and advice for health, public health and social care practitioners. NICE decides which drugs and treatments are available on the NHS in England and Wales. NICE aims to give independent advice about which treatments should be available on the NHS in England and Wales. And to make sure that people have the same access to treatment and care wherever they live. Their Guidelines hold tremendous weight in the medical community at large.

Once NICE issues its guidance, NHS trusts must find the money to make those drugs or treatments available. In these new guidelines, it is very clearly stated that practitioners should consider yoga when offering treatment to people with low back pain and sciatica. We look forward to seeing yoga on prescription for people struggling with such pain, knowing as we do what a massive impact yoga can have on this population, a belief that is absolutely in line with scientific research findings.

We would love to invite you to our training in Yoga Therapy for Low Back Pain & Sciatica on Fri Apr 21, 2017 at 10 AM to Sun Apr 23, 2017 at 5 PM, at the Diorama Arts Centre in London, United Kingdom.

There has been no greater time to undertake training such as this, which will put you at the forefront of understanding and practice and perfectly place you to respond to the demand for yoga for low back pain and sciatica as it becomes part-and-parcel of clinical practice!
