Join clinical specialist Charles E. Paccione and yoga-therapist Anne Siri Langelandsvik either in Studio or Online in a lecture and talk about pain and how yoga, breathing and meditation may be a tool in pain-management!
As a clinical specialist in mind-body pain medicine I have been fascinated by how meditation, yoga, and deep breathing can help individuals deal with both the emotional and physical aspects of chronic pain, acute pain, and optimize mental health.
Pain is a multidimensional experience of mind, body and spirit. Pain arouses and challenges certain components of our nervous system which can cause muscle tension, breath holding, mental fatigue, and challenge our own core beliefs in regard to our life´s purpose and meaning.
How can the practice of yoga revitalize and influence this system mentally, emotionally , intellectually, and spiritually in the face of pain? How does yoga relax, energize, strengthen and remodel our pain experience and sense of belonging?
In this workshop/lecture we will discuss Charles current research in mind-body medicine and the ways in which asanas and pranayama aid in optimizing our metabolism, quieting our breath, stabilizing our blood pressure, lowering our heart rate, and reducing muscle tension.
This workshop is suitable for yoga and meditation-practitioners and teachers, and everyone else who is interested in learning more about pain and how the practice of yoga and meditation can help ease pain.
The workshop is taught both Online via Zoom and in Studio at 11-12 Sunday October 17th. Charles will begin with a talk for 45 minutes, and then Charles and Anne Siri will lead a discussion and Q&A session for the last 15 minutes.
Link to the Zoom meeting will be emailed you in advance.
If you want to participate in the studio please by the ticket Yoga and Pain.
The workshop is recorded, and you get access to the video for two weeks after the workshop.
