Discover back pain yoga.

“For the past 3 and bit years I have lived with chronic pain. I was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis in 2019. My rheumatologist and GP explained how gentle movement was vital in managing my condition and that I would need to incorporated low impact movement into my daily lifestyle. This is when I began back care yoga at Trudy’s yoga studio. Back care yoga yoga at Trudy’s focuses on movement and core strength. Yoga at Trudy’s is a safe place that is nonjudgmental, inclusive and supportive. I have very limited movement in some areas of my body; however, that doesn’t stop me from being able to participate in every pose because each pose is offered to accomodate individual abilities. Modified poses and yoga props are offered for each pose in the classes which allows all levels of practice. Back care yoga at Trudy’s is now part of my life. Yoga assists my body to move more freely and to be in less pain. I look forward to yoga at Trudy’s every week and my body is thankful that I found Trudy”

By Trudy Vains

Have you been thrown some curveballs in life that almost seem insurmountable?

How would you cope with being told you might never do the things you love again?

This must-read book is one woman’s life journey and battle through five car accidents, three major surgeries, alcoholism, the loss of a child, suicidal thoughts, unbelievable pain, and everything in between.

Trudy taught yoga from a wheelchair, told the doctors to f**k off after being told she would never teach again….twice.  Being told the pain was in her mind, to deal with it, or take pills and just get on with it.

Her life has always been hard, but when the doctor called in August 2019 her life was turned upside down. Possible cancer, urgent pelvic surgery and urgent spinal fusion.  BAM.  Well……f**k!

Emotions were raw, she was scared, there was no information or resources about how to cope with this sh*t.

Through it all she was terrified, but Trudy sought out ways to make each of the life changing processes easier to cope with and was uplifted by the people that she met along the way.

Life is what you make it.
