Living with chronic back pain is no joke. Invisible pain, and in particular back pain, is a growing issue for our increasingly sedentary society, with one in ten of us suffering daily. Spending long periods sitting, or hunched over devices, only compounds the problem, whilst for many sufferers movement and exercise seem out of the question, sending you spinning down another spiral of pain and fitful resting. Chronic back pain takes its toll on your mental health, too: it’s worryingly common for sufferers to feel fear, frustration, and anger, or have depression and anxiety because of ongoing pain. (If you’re struggling with any of these symptoms, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Speak to your doctor, or seek support from family and friends.)
You might feel powerless to do anything about your pain, having exhausted medical diagnostics or resorted to heavy-duty pain management, but myriad studies agree that keeping active can make the world of difference. Daily activity and specific physical exercises can help relieve pain and stretch off overwound back, hip, and leg muscles, leading to dramatic, long-term improvement. Having back pain can make even the most basic movement difficult, and often exercising – even walking – is the last thing you want to think about. Mindful movements and Pilates are a wonderful, low-impact solution for back pain sufferers. Indeed, a recent NICE review published in The Times concluded that low-impact exercise and psychological therapy were the only effective treatments for back pain, with anti-inflammatories and acupuncture providing little more relief than a placebo. Moving more, and moving mindfully, might just hold the key to a life without pain.
My newest half-day workshop focuses entirely on back pain, working through floor-based movements that have been shown to consistently provide relief for sufferers.

Exercise mat, pillow and comfortable clothing.
