02 Oct Country yoga teachers – tell us what you know about pain
If you are a yoga teacher in country or regional Australia (i.e. anywhere outside a major city) we would be extremely grateful if you would answer a few questions to help us better understand how your work.
Psychology student Amelia Reynolds is researching the role yoga teachers can play in rural pain management. Whether you consciously teach yoga for people with pain or not we would love to hear from you.
Why we’re doing this research
Prevalence of persistent pain in regional and rural Australia is significantly greater than urban areas. There is also a severe lack of pain care services in these areas.
What we hope to learn
Yoga, when appropriately modified, has demonstrated a myriad of benefits for those suffering persistent pain. We want to understand how, and if, we can increase pain care services in more isolated areas of Australia, through yoga teachers.
What to expect in the survey
You’ll be asked where you are located in regional Australia, your exposure to students with pain, and your knowledge about pain. Please answer the questions as honestly as you can. It’s important that you don’t guess the answer. If you wish to receive a copy of the final report you can let us know at the end of the survey.
Go to the survey here. (It should take 5-10 minutes)
And please share this post with fellow yoga teachers.
Thank you for helping us to understand yoga and pain in country WA and Australia.
