What is pain? Why do we feel it? How do we change pain once it has become chronic? Is persistent pain preventable? What tools can Yoga provide? What is the evidence supporting Yoga for persistent pain?
New models of pain have emerged in the 21st century that both challenge our current understanding of pain and offer hope for those who suffer from persistent pain. Persistent pain is complex, life altering and often confusing. Learning more about pain is an evidence based strategy for getting relief and also for preventing chronic pain. Turns out, many strateges for changing pain are distinctly Yogic in nature.
This 3 hour event is an experiential workshop to help you understand pain and how Yogic tools can be an important part of pain care. This workshop includes:
Pain education lecture and discussion
Applied practice for discovery
Full color handout (in pdf format)
Take home Yoga based strategies
