The work of yoga is to discriminate between the changeable and unchangeable in Life.
In this session, Matthew J Taylor shares insights into the importance of discerning between those concepts in pain care. He'll weave together how pain theories continue to evolve (changeable), how your view of the world continues to and should change, and how to use that awareness as you explore this webinar series. He will make it fun, he'll probably make fun of a few of our misperceived theories, and he welcomes your discussion at the conclusion of the webinar.
Join Neil Pearson, Shelly Prosko, Marlysa Sullivan, and Matthew J Taylor for Yoga and Science in Pain Care Chapter 3: The Current State(s) and Theories on Pain Management
In this online course, we will:
- Have fun reviewing some pain theories and the present state of uncertainty that has become more acutely evident this year.
- Leave with a framework to better appreciate and celebrate your present circumstances in working with yoga and pain care.
- Be able to articulate that your ongoing creative responses are normal and fallible, and certain to change.
This course and the entire Yoga and Science in Pain Care series is intended for:
- Practitioners including yoga therapists and healthcare practitioners interested in integrating yoga with their persistent pain population to expand their approaches in clinical practice
- Yoga teachers interested in understanding aspects of the science behind yoga and pain
- Medical/healthcare professionals who want to better understand pain or want to integrate yoga and mind/body practices
- Mind/body contemplative practitioners/researchers/clinicians who want to better understand the science around pain and how yoga as a mind/body practice works with people in pain
- Yoga practitioners or integrative health consumers who want an in-depth read with practical knowledge in this field.
- Yoga therapist programs and medical university/college programs that require online course study in pain care
- Schools that have online mind/body programs as stand-alone modules or as part of medical programs and other mind-body institutions.
- People suffering from pain, particularly those keen about learning some practices to help with pain self-care and who want to learn more about the value of integrating pain science and yoga
We also hope that this series will help bring together yoga therapists and health professionals. There is value in blending science and yoga therapy in pain care – for the person in pain, for the health professional, and for the yoga professional.
