The BackMitra is the best friend of my spine and all my friends and students absolutely love it! For me personally it was incredible discovery. Being diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis 10 years before, the quality of my everyday life is pretty hard sometimes. When my shoulder joints are inflamed, the only relief I can get immediately is to rest my back on the BackMitra. Also practicing daily on it helps me to prevent the range of motion loss which happens usually for people with RA. I teach BackMitra for 4 years in regular Yoga classes, BackMitra classes, workshops and private therapeutic sessions. The feedback from the students is very impressive every time. They enjoy great improvement in their posture, relieving pain and tension in the upper back, reducing chronic pain in shoulders and neck area, healthier lower back and hips and much more. Working with professional athletes had also a great results in post-training rehab part. My husband is a professional goal keeper and the BackMitra has helped him a lot to release the tension from the body before and after training or game, and also to gain greater shoulder & spine mobility which is super important for goal keepers. Every time I see the serene face of a student or friend lying on the BackMitra and feeling the unique effect of that tool... I am happy for being able to share the magic! Thanks to the BackMitra team and creators! Thank you Guy Hamaekers! See you in Athens!
