Yoga For Pain

img_5901Healing should be a holistic, multidisciplinary approach. We are a sum of our parts, and there is not just one healthcare provider that provide the solution.

I am drawn to yoga because it embraces a wide scope. It can address the physical, the mental, emotional, spiritual, and energetic elements of healing. Aryuveda, the sister science to yoga, addresses diet, constitution and how it relates with the other elements. Yoga teaches awareness and develops our relationship to our body-mind so that we can learn to intuitively listen to our bodies and know what it needs to be well.

Yoga for Pain begins to address these layers with simple movement, breath work, developing awareness and meditation. Skills are built incrementally moving from simple to complex based on the needs of the individual. Yoga for Pain workshops are one way you can begin to address pain within a wide scope, in one modality.

In my workshops  you will learn 8 principles that will help to guide you on your journey to wellbeing.  You will learn foundational poses that you can practice everyday, and even apply to existing yoga practices or other athletics or day to day activities. When you attend a workshop, you will also receive a video of the key poses so you can continue to practice at home.

I also work with a team of chiropractors, acupuncturists, physiotherapists, massage therapists, facial stretch therapists, personal trainers and naturopathic doctors and psychotherapists that I can refer you to for a balanced, holistic, approach that will  speed the rate of your recovery.

There is no pain too big or too small that doesn’t warrant care. Small pain eventually become bigger pains if we ignore them. Pain is not something physical we must endure. It affects us emotionally and psychologically as well. It effects our relationships and how we live or don’t live our lives. Pain is not a “normal” part of life. Pain just doesn’t show up in our lives for no reason. It’s a sign that something in our lives needs to change.
