YOGA THERAPY FOR PAIN RELIEF: A BRAIN-BODY APPROACH FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS
Saturday, April 21, 2018
Pain is an output from your brain–not an input. That’s a crucial distinction. It means that your brain decides whether to create pain, and how much and how intense to create it. It also means that the state of your Central Nervous System, your beliefs, your outlook and your relationship to stress all have an impact on chronic pain.
This is good news for yogis. It means that we have direct and frequent access to something that can help manage pain in our bodies and the bodies of yoga students.
By gathering the wisdom of this ancient practice, viewing it in the light of science, then molding it to fit our needs and respond to our goals, we can modify, change, and maybe even alleviate, our pain.
This workshop will teach the therapeutic Yoga methods that help manage and relieve pain. Don’t expect a traditional Yoga class. Instead, we will explore meditation, breath and movement in a way you’ve never experienced.
This class is open and appropriate for all levels of experience. Those with acute pain or recent injury should not attend unless cleared by a medical professional. Great opportunity for yoga teachers to expand their skills. Open to all.
