Pain Care Aware™ is a program for yoga professionals, fitness professionals and healthcare professionals who guide people to move, including people in pain.

Our mission at Pain Care Aware™ (PCA) is to decrease the impact of pain on society through traditional yoga teachings and pain science, led by compassionate hearts of service.

We do not seek to treat pain at PCA, but we recognize that pain is a human condition and that our language and approach can be adapted to support students experiencing pain during yoga.
