What if there was an innovative way to address chronic pain? The Mindful Yoga for Chronic Pain Professional Training is just that. It's a unique 36-hour intensive course for yoga teachers, physical therapists, mental health therapists, and healthcare providers who wish to explore a groundbreaking, evidence-based program that provides lasting relief by addressing the neuroplasticity underlying chronic pain.
Developed by yoga therapist Kimberly Carson, MPH, C-IAYT, and health psychologist Jim Carson, PhD, this 5-day training is informed by decades of dedicated study, including Jim's 20+ years as a monk and the couple's extensive work in medical centers with people living with chronic pain.
Each day will involve a balance of interactive didactics, immersion in the Mindful Yoga protocol, meditation and posture practice, group work, and discussions.
You will learn:
- To effectively and safely teach yoga-based practices to people living with chronic pain
- How to help clients with conditions such as back pain, fibromyalgia, and neuropathic pain refine their relationship to difficult sensations
- Evidence-based techniques for addressing pain-related challenges such as fatigue and emotional distress
- Ways you can tailor postures and breathing practices to meet a diverse range of needs.
The Carsons' extensive clinical research has repeatedly shown this approach leads to significantly less pain, fatigue, and emotional distress while increasing vigor, healthy acceptance, and relaxation. Leave ready to skillfully teach yoga-based practices that integrate modern medicine's neurobiological understanding of pain with the ancient wisdom of yoga.
