Creating a Caring Practice

Yoga for Pain Management

Yoga for Pain Management helps us define the specific tools from Yoga and how they can be effective in daily pain management. Whether we are recovering from a recent injury or illness, or experiencing the ongoing effects of chronic pain, this course will provide options and techniques for daily care of both our physical and emotional health.

Please note, this course is meant to work in conjunction with the exercises and advice as provided by your doctors and/or physiotherapists. Should you have any concerns or questions please reach out: Experience with Yoga while recommended, is not required.
