October 25-27 (4-part seminar)
Persistent pain can affect all aspects of our life leading to frustration and isolation. This seminar shines a new light on pain treatment options that activate the body’s innate healing power. Drawing from modern science and the healing traditions of yoga and Ayurveda, this holistic approach of nutritional wisdom, stress mastery, positive psychology and purposeful movement can unlock your healing potential and provide lasting solutions to persistent conditions such as chronic back pain, fibromyalgia and arthritis.
In this experiential seminar, learn how the mind-body connection can help you activate your healing response and reverse habitual reactions to pain. Through lecture and gentle practice sessions, discover the knowledge and tools to experience better sleep quality, greater endurance, and increased capacity for activity, while letting go of fears related to movement. This combination of evidence-based theory and mindful movement makes the seminar invaluable for yoga teachers, massage therapists, family members and other caregivers to more effectively assist individuals experiencing various forms of chronic pain.
