|Skillfully balancing movement and relaxation is a primary method recommended to pain suffers as a way to alleviate their discomfort. For many chronic and long-term pain sufferers a typical exercise regimen may prove too painful to endure and thus unable to provide benefits, but yoga is increasingly becoming known as an effective strategy for addressing pain for many people.
The Yoga of Awareness program has been shown in clinical trials at Duke University and Oregon Health & Science University to reduce pain, fatigue, and distress in persons suffering from the pain associated with fibromyalgia, cancer and cancer treatments. By utilizing the gentle movement found in hatha yoga, in addition to other elements found in the traditional practices of yoga - emphasizing meditation, postures, philosophy, self-study, and breath work, Jim and Kimberly Carson have created a comprehensive approach to addressing the physical, emotional, and mental impacts of living with chronic pain.
We invite registered yoga instructors to Duke Integrative Medicine for a 7-day program to see how the Yoga of Awareness program can transform the lives of your students and clients who are living with chronic pain.
