An estimated 20-25% of North Americans and 1.5 billion people worldwide live with chronic pain and a growing number of health professionals are recommending yoga to their patients particularly since we now have research to support yoga is a potentially safe and effective approach for improving function, pain and quality of life for people with chronic pain.

Yoga therapists are well positioned to contribute to a comprehensive pain care plan. However, misunderstandings about pain by the therapist can result in suboptimal outcomes for the person in pain, where the therapist might use language that unintentionally limits the potential for recovery and resilience or might avoid yoga practices that ultimately would improve tissue health, reduce inflammation, support self-efficacy, help restore more ease of movement, and help regain activities that the person enjoys and values in life.

This module includes a combination of lecture and experiential components, including participation in awareness, breathing, meditation and movement practices. Resources will be shared that will be valuable for the therapist to use for themselves and to share with the people in pain they serve.

This module is being delivered online. 

There is a total of 12 hours live online and approximately 10 hours of videos and reading material included.

LIVE ONLINE sessions will be over 3 days:

Saturday June 26, 2021: 9am – 1:30pm PST

Sunday June 27, 2021: 9am – 1:30pm PST

Tuesday July 6, 2021: 5pm – 8pm PST
