Pain Care PhysioYoga
Time & Location
About The Event
For those who suffer from persistent pain movement, energy and breath can be diminished, significantly impacting daily life and overall functioning. Unfortunately, this is a vicious cycle that can be hard to break.
Understanding the complex and interrelated conditions that come with persistent pain, we have created this 6 week series to assist in connecting body, mind, spirit and community. Supported through mindful movement including basic core training and integration, gentle stretching, strengthening and movement, as well as guided meditations and group discussions, participants will gain:
- a sense of the physiology and psychology of pain
- how to tune in to positive experiences in their body and mind
- a myriad of self care techniques including breath work, mindful movement and meditation
- the connection to a community of their peers
This series is open to any and all people suffering from Persistent Pain, including but not limited to a diagnosis of: Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Pain, Mild traumatic brain injury &/or Post-Concussion Syndrome, etc.
Some basic mat work and movement is expected during this class, although many modifications and props are provided. If you have significantly reduced mobility (i.e. cannot get down/up off the ground relatively easily independently), our Chair PhysioYoga class may be a better fit for you.
Our Physiotherapists and Yoga Teacher co-creators have specialized training in complex medical conditions as well as Pain Care Yoga, including Yoga for those living with mild traumatic brain injury and/or post-concussion syndrome.
Classes are 75 minutes and limited to 5 participants for more individual care. Classes may be covered by extended health insurance plans under Physiotherapy if you are currently under active care. For all outside patients, please have your referring Physio complete the form below.etc.
