“The Yoga for a Happy Back training has deepened my understanding of back pain and the many reasons we suffer from it; from anatomy through lifestyle, down to the emotional and even biographical causes of our pain. This knowledge was made tangible through the practices themselves, which perfectly exemplified the theory we were given. Taking this course has deepened both my personal practice and my teaching, and the benefits and impacts of what Rachel skillfully and soulfully teaches have created positive change for both me and my students.”  – Michelle Rochwerger  Jerusalem, Israel.  Graduate June 2020.

” Even with my training as a nurse, 30+ years of yoga practice, teacher training, and multiple workshops – I am still learning new things! Rachel has such a wonderful, in depth knowledge of anatomy and a very clear way of sharing that knowledge verbally, through visuals, and then demonstrating how it works with yoga poses…truly a gift.” – JoAnn Webster, St. Louis, Missouri, Online Participant, 2020


Yoga for a Happy Back is more than a way to relieve back pain; it’s a means towards finding your Truth and living it fully.

Yoga for a Happy Back is a lifestyle.  We are here to help you thrive and there are a number of ways you can participate and bring this work to others through your professional expertise.  With classes, workshops, teacher training, books and videos, including a DVD, you can be a part of this approach whether you are a yoga novice, advanced practitioner, yoga teacher or health care professional.
