Teach the BackMitra with Confidence & Care

The BackMitra is an innovative spinal prop designed to relieve tension, reduce stress, and optimize postural alignment. Through gentle pressure on the spine, the BackMitra mobilizes the mid-back, promoting flexibility and ease while revitalizing breath. From yoga and movement teachers, to RMT’s and chiropractors, the BackMitra® offers a supportive practice to facilitate the relaxation response, foster presence and further healing.

Join this journey of learning and liberation! The 12 hour foundation training is based on the integrative teachings of yoga therapy synthesizing insights and techniques from Restorative Alignment, Vijnana Yoga and the MELT Method. Discover fundamental and functional anatomy of the spine, shoulder girdle and diaphragm and be trained to teach safe and creative use of the BackMitra.
