Over 100 million Americans are living with chronic pain. Safe, effective treatments are hard to come by, but research has shown that yoga can improve life for people with chronic pain conditions. In this workshop, Stephani Sutherland will provide an overview of how people experience pain–from sensory nerves in the skin all the way to the highest brain centers–and how yoga can help alleviate pain and suffering by affecting the nervous system at multiple levels. When a yoga teacher, healer, nurse or others who wish to help people who are in pain have this knowledge things shift. The science is now there to prove how yoga helps. But having the knowledge clearly can help yoga teachers or other professionals individualize care. In addition to lecture and discussion, Stephani will lead participants through two brief asana practices followed by pranayama (seated breathing exercises) intended to demonstrate the energetic effects of the breath, working through the autonomic nervous system. Come with questions about neuroscience or pain for the Q&A afterwards.
