In September 2010, an abstract of Michelle's work (in collaboration with Dr. Troy

and Relief of Chronic Low Back Pain,” was accepted and published in the WAIT,
International Journal of Yoga Therapy, Supplement (2010).
Michelle presented a poster of their work at the International Association of Yoga
Therapist’s historic first Symposium on Yoga Research held October1-3, 2010, at the
Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA. Click here to view research poster.

certain indices of chronic low back pain and for improving lower limb function within a
relatively short period of time.
