Whenever I give a yoga therapy session (e.g. someone with lower back pain), I like to imagine the client will ask me a bunch of questions.
So, I study up on the subject, and make notes in FAQ format (see below). Once I’ve completed my FAQs, I read one, close my eyes and answer it the best I can. I open my eyes to see how much detail I got right. If I missed anything, I repeat the process until I get it right.
This gives me huge confidence when giving a one to one session. There’s nothing like diligent preparation to give you confidence when going into a one-to-one session with a client. Though, I always tell my clients that I’m not a doctor, and if they have any concerns they should consult their doctor.
Below are the Yoga for lower back pain FAQs….
