This is part #1 of the Pain Care Certificate Course. 

The focus is on enhancing foundational knowledge, and shifting paradigms of pain, people living in pain and evidence-based pain care. This course provides in-depth integration of pain science, innovative pain self- management techniques, yoga philosophy and yoga practices. Participants will gain a solid foundation in pain science, and in yoga philosophy related to pain and pain management.
Daily yoga practices will help the practitioner begin the integration of Pain Care Yoga principles into their clinical or therapeutic practice.

 Attendees will learn: 

  • Updated pain science and basic neurobiology

  • Covering aspects in anatomy, biology, physiology, and psychology

  • How pain impacts every aspect of our existence

  • Using each aspect of our existence to impact pain and to increase evidence of safety

  • How to use "moving with ease" as both a pain education tool and for hypoalgesia

  • Yoga Therapy skills and techniques for people living with persisting pain

  • Treatment planning through case study review

Part 2 - Overcome Pain with Gentle Yoga is scheduled for November 2020.

Part 3 - Mini Mentorship/Home Study is done independantly.
