Strala Training : No More Back Pain

How to Prevent and Cure Back Pain with Yoga and Tai Chi

   Watch Promo

This course gives you a practicable ability to prevent and heal both chronic and acute back pain and injury.

Western medicine works miracles every day with emergency room surgery, antibiotics, and infectious disease. But it struggles with much of what plagues us most, including the stress-related ailments that account for most hospital visits today. Back pain continues to present a big challenge here. So we need something better. And for this, we can head farther East.

Movement is central to nearly every traditional East Asian healing practice, and how we move each day rewires everything about us, from our microbiome to our neurology and gene expression. So let’s begin here.


What You'll Find Here

Through a series of instructional and practice videos, reading, exercises, and homework, you’ll learn to use the movement and healing vocabularies of both yoga and tai chi, as well as our human vocabulary - how we navigate through our lives each day - to restore and support the remarkable healing pathways we each have within us.

We’ll share and practice together an approach and techniques that work for a wide variety of common challenges with the back and spine, including joint instability, sciatica, and soft tissue strains and sprains.


Who Is This For

Everything we do is designed to help people move more easily from right where they are each day. So wherever you are is a perfect place to begin. This is true for all of our courses, including these online programs.

For teachers and healing professionals, you'll gain a structure and process for healing that you can share with everyone you reach.

And for everyone, you'll learn to elicit and support your body's natural healing response, as well as a variety of techniques specific for preventing and healing back pain.


What You Get

Watch: 10 Instructional and Practice Sessions, covering an overall approach to movement and healing through the forms of yoga and tai chi, as well as targeted practices for prevention and healing of back pain.

Read: Session-by-session notes and tips, and a 50-page No More Back Pain manual, that gives additional direction and detail, along with regular homework assignments.

Progress: Everybody learns in their own way, at their own pace, and this course is yours to go through in your own time. We follow an adult learning model with all our trainings, and we’re here to support everyone's process individually.

Continuing Education Credit: This course counts for 30 hours of credit, Including application to both our Ready-to-Lead and Advanced Leadership Trainings.

Continuous Improvement and Updates: What we do together is always growing and evolving, and people who take our in-person courses each year always notice that it’s different (and better!) every time. The same holds for our online courses. We’ll be continually improving and adding to what we share in the reading and video sessions, and you’ll have ongoing access to this course so you can review whenever you like, and keep progressing over time. This way we all get to grow together here.

Lifetime: Taking good care of yourself is the practice of a lifetime. When you learn to release stress, find harmony in your body and peace in your mind, heal what needs healing, and accomplish challenge with ease, you have something amazing to share.


Faculty

Mike Taylor is the resident healer and co-founder of Strala. Named “Best Mover” by MindBodyGreen, he’s practiced Eastern movement and healing techniques, including tai chi, qigong, and shiatsu, for more than three decades.

In his younger years, Mike challenged centuries of reasonable and well-tested martial traditions in hundreds of competitions, by applying unruly imagination to a world where rules were unbreakable. As he got older, he continued on to medical applications of the mind-body connection in university. Mike studied mind-body medicine at Harvard, and alternative medicine and psychology at Oxford. After running into walls with standard medical practice in the U.S. and England, Mike left his healthcare roots. He worked at a steel mill for a while, joined a web company, and then founded a few more.

Now Mike has found his way back to health care done right, helping people let go of stress in their bodies and minds, and become their own best caregivers. Mike climbs a few mountains in his spare time.
