Taking a tour…

…of the spine.

Have you ever had pain in your body, and felt helpless to help yourself and limited with ‘what to do’?! Have you ever googled your aches and pains to better understand what’s amiss…and what you ought to be doing..?

When things go wrong we all look to increase our knowledge – it’s a purpose-driven pursuit: to move out of pain!


When we better understand the nuts and bolts of our body, we can better connect to it.

When we’re connected to it, only then can we start to make powerful shifts to help ourselves.


An anatomical marriage

I married up with Ekhartyoga.com to produce this series of articles to take you on a tour of the spine – to explore the inside of our internal anatomy, to see how it all fits together and what to start doing if it’s grumbling at us…because ignorance really isn’t blissful.

So if you have lower back ache, or struggle with your upper back, or your neck and shoulders I’ve organised the articles so that you can go to the essential information.

(Of course, the whole spine is one connected structure which is interdependent on the rest and yet has the capacity to move segment by individually segment… A metaphor for us as human beings, indeed…)

The joy of team work means that these articles have a myriad of additional resources that EkhartYoga have added…so you’ll have a wonderful glimpse into the largest online yoga studio in Europe.

Check out the specific articles below that are related to your troubled area, and see how knowing a little bit more makes a whole lot of difference…

NB. No need to be a yogini to access the articles and to enhance your inside insight!
