Program Description

Immerse yourself in safe, effective practices to improve your ease of movement, decrease your pain, and help you live well again. Explore science-based views on chronic pain while empowering yourself with practical tools to move with ease. Heal yourself through yoga techniques (no experience needed) designed to wind down your nervous system and promote positive, lasting changes in your body.

This program goes far beyond offering modified physical postures to clients and patients. According to Neil Pearson, the founder of Pain Care Yoga, this workshop teaches the importance of practicing yoga with the intention of addressing suffering in all aspects of our existence—though the integration of pain science, the lived experience of pain, and therapeutic yoga.

Interactive lecture, instruction, practice, and small‐group work will help you learn:

  • Powerful awareness practices
  • Effective self-regulation techniques
  • New ways to move with more ease
  • A simplified plan for success with daily pain care
  • Specialized techniques adapted for specific, common chronic-pain conditions
  • Inspirational outcomes from case studies.

By incorporating structural, neuroscientific, and spiritual perspectives with yoga postures, therapeutic communication, visualization, and ritual development you will be able to create safe practices and natural interventions to assist you or your clients with persisting pain conditions.

Why Attend?

  • Deepen your understanding of what pain is and how pain self-care is a valuable and effective process towards living well again.

  • Expand the techniques and practices you use for pain management and practice these under the guidance of an international leader in yoga and physical therapy pain care.

  • Connect with others—learn from shared experiences and stories, finding inspiration and guidance towards reconnecting with what is truly important in your life.
