Professional Development

This continuing professional development for experienced yoga teachers, presented by specialist yoga practitioners, forms part of a series organised at Experience Yoga.

Pain management approaches

Saturday 30 April 2016 @ 2 – 5pm, Experience Yoga studio. Cost: $75
Whether teaching a group or offering individual yoga therapy consultations, an inordinate number of students present with the symptoms of physical pain. This session will review the psychophysiology and psychoneuroimmunology of pain, the yogic understanding of the mind and pain, and evidence-based techniques for management. Time will be spent experiencing these practices and finish with discussion of teachers’ experiences with students, over herbal tea and a bliss ball.

Space is limited to 7 teachers. Click on 30 April on the Timetable to book in and pay.

Restorative yoga for health professionals

A wonderful afternoon of mindfulness & restoration with @experienceyoga, thank you Caroline. Kate, Sports Physiotherapist and owner, Bodylab

As a health professional and a busy woman in a frantic world, I appreciated the opportunity to switch off, be still and feel ‘restored’. I have attempted a lot of body work, guided relaxation and meditation and my experience of putting my mind into my body about the least relaxing thing I can do – it just feels like work all over again, and I am often frustrated by poor anatomical knowledge, teaching or cues.

My experience in the session with Caroline was quite the opposite. My physical self felt the benefits and my brain understood how compelling the research is – Stress is literally killing us. As a practitioner I am excited to be able to offer this type of therapy to my clients through Caroline’s expert skills, and I personally am looking forward to developing my ‘relaxation response’.
