Yoga for Pain Essential Meditation (Online delivery)

Thursday April 20 2017

Yoga for Pain is a field of practice that examines how people with pain live healthy, meaningful lives (and learn yoga). The Essential Meditation is a simple but efficient practice within that field that can help students reduce pain symptoms and the risk of making their pain worse. As a cohesive set with many layers it also sets the conditions for future learning – in yoga and the way a person moves through life.

In this session you will unpack the first layer of the Essential Meditation, including the three main variations that students progress through. The session covers (based on group interest and capacity) how the Essential Meditation:

  • Is similar to mindful movement, and how it differs
  • Mitigates some of the main challenges people with pain face in movement
  • Can help reduce pain symptoms
  • Enables students to learn the Yamas and Niyamas through movement (there’s a reason they feature first in the 8 limbs!)
  • Can assist teachers and students shift from avoiding or fixing pain, into fluid movement channelled into the meaningful

Useful for practitioners who received an introduction during foundations level training and want to better understand the mechanisms, and those interested in ensuring their clients have the basics in place before progressing too far and coming unstucks.

Open to Yoga for Pain Practitioners who have completed a minimum of foundations level training (including assignments).
