Injury Prevention & Rehab - Pain-Free Yoga for Injury Prevention, Sports Injuries, & Rehabilitation - Inspired by Physical Therapy

Pain-Free Yoga for Injury Prevention, Sports Injuries, & Rehabilitation – Inspired by Physical Therapy

Is Yoga for Injury Prevention and Rehab right for you?

Are you concerned about injury caused by exercise?
Do you have recurring shoulder, back, or knee problems that just don’t seem to go away?
Are you recovering from a surgery or an injury, and want to make sure you choose an exercise that is safe and effective for you?

Yoga inspired by sports rehab and injury rehab is different from most yoga classes taught in a studio, and very different from the depiction of yoga you might see in advertisements, movies, or on social media.

Yoga can be very effective low impact exercise for helping to prevent injury and recover from it- but only if you do it in a certain way. In fact, general yoga classes can make the issue even worse and further derail your recovery efforts.

Are you ready to take the guesswork out of injury prevention and rehab?

Injury Prevention & Rehab - David C- Success Story

MFY has made the difference for me and it’s kept me on the trail to be able to run. After many years of injury, physical therapy got me back on the trail, but yoga is what keeps me there, giving me the extra strength, stability, and flexibility to maintain my running.

From David C


With Man Flow Yoga’s plan for you, you’ll focus on building strength, mobility, and balance to recover from and prevent injury. The approach we take to injury prevention and rehab translates into greater foundational strength and improved movement patterns. Through our programs, you’ll equip yourself with the injury prevention strategies you need for optimal day-to-day fitness.

Bottom Line: How can Man Flow Yoga help?

  • Re-establish foundational levels of strength and mobility to ensure pain-free day-to-day movement.
    • Your workouts focus on the most important aspects of functional, day-to-day fitness: strengthening your hips and core, improving hip and spinal mobility, and reinforcing the proper technique for posture on a day to day basis.
  • Address the root causes of back pain, knee pain, and shoulder pain / discomfort by strengthening and improving mobility of tight, inactive muscles.
    • The low impact exercises involved are beginner-friendly and approachable by people of all fitness levels. They also don’t involve typical high stress or high impact movements common in other types of fitness, which means you won’t hurt yourself exercising.
  • Create the habit of moving more!
    • Moving is how the body heals itself; not by waiting to recover.
    • We provide a structured schedule of workouts to help you be consistent. You’ll start to feel better almost immediately, and you’ll continue to feel better as long as you stick with the workouts.
  • Establish a solid foundational level of functional fitness that prepares you for more intense or more difficult exercise (and even if you just want to be able to move day to day without worrying about injury, it’ll do this for you, too).
    • Start off with just 10-20 minutes per day, 3 days per week.
    • Hundreds of low impact exercise videos to choose from to keep you active and motivated for your next workout.

Summary of Programming

Bulletproof Your Back

Program 1: Bulletproof Your Back

This is a program I developed with physical therapists to relieve back pain and address the root causes of it. It includes low impact, foundational exercises to prevent injury in your entire body, and help you recover from past injuries or surgeries.

  • Build strength and mobility in your hips, core, and back, to relieve back pain and start feeling better in just weeks – or as little as a few days.
  • Starting at 10 minutes per day, building up to 20-30 minutes per day. At least 3, but recommend 6x per week. 3-5 month program.

Program 2: The Strength Foundations Course

The Strength Foundations Course

This is a program that helps you address the common weaknesses that lead to injury in the first place. It is a total-body program to strengthen your back, knees, hips, shoulders, and even your ankles.

  • Build functional strength and mobility in your entire body, and learn the foundational yoga postures while you’re at it. These workouts are slightly more challenging than Bulletproof Your Back.
  • Complete 3-6 workouts per week, 3 phases, 2-4 months.

Workouts & Supplementary Content:

  • Basic non-yoga exercises to strengthen your shoulders
  • Lifestyle videos to help with improving diet, sleep, and motivation

Injury Prevention & Rehab - Firas A - Success Story

I couldn’t lift my left arm up without feeling extreme pain, much less do any push-ups, pull ups or any kind of weight lifting such as bench pressing. 3 months later, I’m actually stronger than I’ve ever been, and finally making great progress with my weight lifting.
