Monika's goal for this workshop is to provide you with a basic understanding of a few common back conditions so that you can recognize, address and work with them. After completing this workshop, you will have a toolkit of effective treatments and a sequence that I have collected throughout my years of teaching clients with back problems and also from having my own back sensitivities.
Doctors prescribe to most lower back patients Pilates and yoga. However, some patients with lower back pain complain that their back hurts more after doing yoga or Pilates. Monika wants to share some insights from her perspective as a Pilates/yoga teacher, and also as a person who has had a serious back injury affecting her vertebrae and is living and practicing with this condition.
What Monika wants you all to take away from this workshop is at least that you understand what to watch out for, what to do, and how to best modify your practice.

Provide your team with preventative care. Many of our workplace environments, including work-from-home require sitting all day long—here’s a look at how that can affect your back:
Atrophy of back muscles
Stiffness and aching
Developing poor posture
Pricing: $500 for maximum 10 people, 90 minutes
This workshop provides tools and strategies to those clients who suffer from back issues so they can practice yoga/pilates and other movement modalities safely. It's also a great resource for teachers so they can learn how to modify for clients who complain that their backs feel irritated during or after their class.
Pricing can be set by the studio and revenues will be split 50/50
I came to the Happy Back Workshop because of a back injury, spasms and disc bulges.
Elaine the owner of the 2nd story pilates & yoga studio in Queens recommended that I work with Monika.
What I learned is that I should REALLY rest and take it easy and let my back heal. Also, the pictures of what not to do helped me a great deal.
I could see what I was doing wrong.
Monika's handout is excellent.
I read it right away when I got it and the pictures are very helpful.
People who have back problems should attend this workshop!
For me, it was the perfect workshop and handout. Just what I needed for the problem I am experiencing.
