More and more Yoga practitioners (and teachers) are showing up to class with debilitating sacroiliac discomfort becoming members of a rapidly growing international “SIJ” Club. In many instances sacroiliac issues in Yoga practitioners are the consequence of repetitive dysfunctional movements, skewed body mechanics and forceful overstretching. Little-by-little, these actions can erode the inherent stability of the pelvis, resulting in pain and movement impairment.
Donna was clear, considered and concise with her delivery and information. Her level of knowledge, research and experience allowed an outstanding opportunity to learn and evolve my practice; how I teach and why I teach a particular way. ~ Stephanie Williams
This has solidified my confidence and courage to listen to my body and not another ‘guru’ as to what is right for me. I have tools to use when things go wrong and tools to ensure I’m still practicing in my 80s. ~ Riddhi Blackley
I expected the anatomy to perhaps be ‘over my head’ but it was delivered so clearly I could easily follow. ~ Anphia Beyers
Donna presents this workshop as she would teaching a Yoga class. She makes you feel welcome, safe, accepted, and then speaks with beautiful articulation and pauses, which allows you time to absorb the information. I loved every minute. ~ Amy Seal Australia (participant at a live weekend intensive)
Donna is doing such groundbreaking work, I am quite sure one day her protocols will be the internationally recognised gold standard for treating the lower back - and not just in yoga practitioners. I could literally feel the subtle placement alteration in my body the day after the workshop - my movement was more free and more comfortable. Thank you. Sula Blake (Melbourne, Australia)
Donna Farhi has put together a deeply helpful online course for people seeking to understand the causes, ramifications and rehabilitation protocols of low back pain and sacroiliac problems. She covers the theory in depth, including a helpful review of the historical perspectives that lead up to current thinking. The practical aspect of the course is well thought through and easy to follow, I can fully recommend it. ~ Peter Blackaby, author of Intelligent Yoga, www.intelligentyoga.co.uk
The workshop provided the tools, knowledge, and trust to awaken a deeper self-inquiry and connection to an inner knowledge; I believe that’s when force, effort, and friction leave our practice and we are supported by the natural rhythms. I left with a newfound trust in playing in this space. ~ Phoebe Dougall
THANK YOU DONNA! I have learned SO much and I have cut up my membership card to the SIJ Club! I have also had chronic hip pain off and on for years in my front left hip flexor . As I have been applying the principles and doing the practices I have NO MORE hip pain. Wow! ~ Andrea Vehrs, Utah, USA teacher of Prime Yoga and Sukha Flow.
Your teaching was sublime. You presented at a higher level than I have ever witnessed. ~ Michelle Harris
Donna is changing the way yoga is learnt and taught. ~ Alli Black
