Yoga for Pain Relief: Therapeutic Practice & Pain Education
A 7-week course with Sarah Jamieson

A growing body of scientific evidence shows that stress exacerbates pain and that practicing yoga can significantly reduce stress. This course will bring together new science in pain neurophysiology with the well-established wisdom of yoga. Understanding the neurophysiology of pain will help you explore the relationship between your body, your mind, and your pain and it will give you more control over your relationship with pain. Through a variety of yogic tools, including lecture, breath work, meditation, movement, and restorative postures, you will learn to deepen your body awareness, calm your nervous system, and improve your functional movement. This course is for anyone struggling with any type of pain – from pain conditions like fibromyalgia to “everyday” pain, like recurring headaches or hip pain – and it will empower you to address and minimize the pain in your life.
