Yoga for Health Practitioners – professional development during National Pain Week

Yoga for Health Practitioners – professional development during National Pain Week

Yoga for Health Practitioners is a professional development session offered by Finding Yoga during National Pain Week. Allied health, GPs and other health providers can experience a gentle yoga practice and learn how yoga can be part of a multi-disciplinary approach to pain management.

Research shows that when taught appropriately, yoga can help to manage stress and pain. But referring a client to yoga can be challenging: there are different styles, different teachers, and if you’ve never done yoga yourself it’s hard to know what you’re recommending.

This session includes:

  • A gentle vinyasa yoga practice, meditation and relaxation (50 minutes)
  • Explanation of the main postural yoga styles
  • Commentary about modifying yoga postures for those with pain and other health conditions
  • Introduction to yoga as part of a multi-disciplinary approach to persistent pain
  • Recommended guidance for chronic pain clients considering yoga
  • Building relationships with yoga teachers
