Yoga for Chronic Pain

Chair Yin

For Travel Aches and Pains

Many of my clients experience a pain flare after travel. Pain is so complex and multifaceted, so there is never any one reason that it rears it’s ugly head. This practice is a quick and accessible practice that you can do just about anywhere in a chair. I’ve chosen the stretches we all crave when we’ve been sitting in a car or airplane as well as regulation practices to help you calm your nervous systems to get some perspective or even relief. Often, when pain is flaring in a travel situation, it’s because we have some anxiety and we aren’t moving very much. This practice addresses both issues.  

Props needed: a chair 🙂


Pain Care Yoga Course
Start Your Pain Care Journey

If you are a longtime listener to this podcast, you are well familiar with pain care yoga. Everything I do is intended to support those who live with persisting pain. It is estimated that 1 in 10 people have chronic pain worldwide. In the US though, that number is closer to 20-30%. Pain is a universal human experience that is vital to our survival. But enduring pain that steals your peace and your future is not normal. Ensuring that evidence informed, wholistic pain care is available to anyone who needs it is my mission. The podcast is a great resource for evidence informed pain care. But if you would like to enhance your understanding as a yoga practicioner, teacher or as someone who lives with chronic pain, or loves someone who does, I have a free resource for you. Introduction to Pain Care Yoga is a short video course that will formalize your understanding of Yoga for Pain Care and provide simple, accessable strategies for relief.

Hamstrings Stretches

 Yin Yoga:

Hamstrings Education

We have a big problem with misinformation in the Yoga world. This problem seems most rampant around the hamstrings but is by no means exclusive to the hamstrings. The myth that stretching the hamstrings will “lengthen” the hamstrings and reduce the subjective experience of tightness has been going around for some time. For this 30 minute practice, we will practice a very traditional Yin practice focused on the hamstrings, EXCEPT, we won’t be stretching the bejesus out of your hamstrings. I’ll teach you a more sustainable approach that will ACTUALLY help you to increase range of motion and decrease sensitivity. Not only is it more effective, but it’s a whole lot more enjoyable. No Props Needed.
