Yoga for Pain Practitioner Training

One in five Australians now experience some form of persistent pain. It’s an ongoing challenge for health care providers, but also offers new opportunities. Our training courses give yoga teachers and health practitioners knowledge and skills to provide better care for people with pain, to help them reduce and better manage pain, and to live healthy, meaningful lives.

Our full practitioner program is now available at Yoga for Pain Care Australia.

You’ll learn about:

  • Pain science
  • Research into yoga and pain
  • Principles for teaching yoga safely and effectively to people with persistent pain
  • Techniques to calm the nervous system and build body awareness
  • Using the biopsychosocial model to get better outcomes from yoga
  • An introduction to our inquiry-based yogic education framework for class and consult planning

Courses are suitable for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, qualified yoga teachers, counsellors, GPs and other health professionals.
