The University of York (Department of Health Sciences) ran one of the largest research studies into yoga to date, funded by Arthritis Research UK. Teachers from the Iyengar Yoga Association (UK) and British Wheel of Yoga designed and ran specialist group classes in five areas of the UK for chronic back pain. The positive results were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in 2011. The Cost Evaluation in Spine Journal showed that this yoga would be cost-effective for the NHS.

The Merseyside YHLB Team were invited to a Free From Pain Symposium at the Royal Liverpool Hospital on 30 March 2019. PLEASE LISTEN – to this powerful message to his peers from orthopedic back surgeon George Ampat at the Symposium on the cost effectiveness of the YHLB course compared with largely ineffective use of steroid injections and their disproportionate £750 cost to the NHS compared to @£150 for YHLB Course!
