06 Feb Yoga for Pain Practitioner Training
Yoga offers a holistic form of caring for the 1 in 5 Australians who experience persistent pain.
Many health practitioners are now realising the positive effects, backed up by research, and are increasingly referring their patients to pain-sensitive yoga classes to get them off to the best start. Taught well, yoga can incorporate existing best-practice interventions, and progress practitioners beyond alleviating the symptoms of pain into participating meaningfully in life.
Join Yoga for Pain Practitioner Training to develop your understanding of how to successfully work with this growing client group, the tools for developing your own Yoga for Pain program, and the method of inquiry that will allow you to grow your practice as your clients grow.
Open to yoga teachers and health practitioners.
Attending a Yoga for Pain workshop or course before or after the training is encouraged.
What previous participants say
“The best professional development course I have experienced in a long time. It was so well prepared, full of up to date information, interactive, challenging and stimulating.”
(Kate Morris Alexander Education, Melbourne)
“I learnt how to integrate yoga and neuroscience in a non-threatening and balanced way. I feel that translating these skills to the classroom will be beneficial on many levels for clients experiencing persistent pain.”
(Alana Brass, physiotherapist, Canberra)
The Yoga for Pain Practioner Training confirmed for me that yoga does work for pain. We looked at reseach that showed significant improvements in many health outcomes such as reduced pain, improved pain coping skills and quality of life. I reflected on the experience of delivering yoga classes for clients with long term health conditions, including chronic pain and the benefits they reported.
(Maree Chambers, community nurse and yoga teacher, Melbourne)
“One of the most valuable things for me was understanding the importance of inquiry and setting outcome goals to provide focus and direction, as well as a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction for myself and my clients.”
(Jane Leslie, physiotherapist at Wisdom Physiotherapy and Yoga for Arthritis teacher, Perth)
