Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500 speaks with you in a mini lecture about using Yoga for Tailbone Trauma at Aura Wellness Center. As most of us know, yoga is practised in various forms: pranayama, meditation, exercises, postures, and so on. Each method of practising yoga has its own benefits, and all the yoga forms combined together strengthen our physical and emotional well-being, thereby contributing to our all-round development. 

Most of us know that yoga exercises or yoga postures, commonly known as asanas, when practised consistently under the guidance of a trained teacher, equip us with tremendous energy that is much needed to keep us going in our busy lives. Of the very many advantages of practising yoga postures, one benefit is relatively less known or is not commonly talked about. This benefit is the healing power of asanas; for example, people suffering from lower back pain have benefitted to a great extent by practising specific asanas meant for curing lower back pain. However, practising yoga postures with an intention to heal an injury has some caveats.

In this video, E-RYT 500 certified yoga teacher, Dr. Paul Jerard, sets the background for yoga for students with tailbone injuries or trauma. In human beings, who are tailless primates, tailbone is the final segment of the vertebral column and is also known as coccyx. As yoga teachers, you may come across existing students suffering from these injuries or may find some students approaching you, who are wanting to heal the injury by way of practising specific yoga postures.

In such a scenario, yoga teachers must consider some important points, such as what instructions have such students received from their doctors, and whether or not the students have consulted with their doctors, among other things. In case the students have not consulted with their doctors, then teachers must advise them to visit their doctors and get a go ahead from them.
