Petrina is offering this extended immersion into Yoga Therapy for Your Back for the first time. If you want to prevent, relieve and heal a nagging back discomfort or injuries, this immersion may be a game changer for your well-being.

Petrina will share a wealth of information that helped to heal her and many of her students' back, neck and shoulder pain.

Some of the topics:

  • Stress and your back

  • Improve body’s alignment, core strength and flexibility

  • Simple sequences of strengthening and restorative yoga postures

  • Modifying the yoga postures for your body

  • The importance of mindful breathing

  • Establish safe boundaries of protection in your yoga practice as well as in your life

  • Be your own healer by truly knowing yourself

This immersion is recommended for yoga teachers and yoga students of all levels.

For the maximum benefit, Petrina recommends taking both workshops or the one of your choice and follow with the 4-class series to better integrate the information into your practice. The workshops are not a pre-requisite for the 4-class series.

About Petrina
IYTA Certified Yoga Therapist


Petrina is a highly experienced yoga teacher and yoga therapist, for the last 20 plus years. Over that time, she has effectively coached hundreds of people of all walks of life, individually and in groups, to regain their balance of Body-Mind-Spirit. 

After initially being introduced to Yoga when she was a very young woman, she pursued a career as a professional dancer, teacher and choreographer that, unfortunately, ended due to a car accident. It was then that she immersed herself in the study of Yoga (especially the Krishnamacharya lineage), Eastern & Western healing arts, meditation and the ways of the Wise Woman.

The sum of all these disciplines to which she devoted herself has resulted in her unique and holistic approach to teaching others to integrate the intellectual, physical and spiritual dimensions in their lives. Her classes, workshops, retreats, women’s circles and private sessions seamlessly blend her wealth of knowledge and experience to create a safe, dynamic and transformative practice for her students to inspire more vibrant and conscious living. As a Dancer and a Priestess of Light she brings the element of a divine playful connection to balancing and healing ourselves, our families, communities and our planet.
