Get Curious About Pain

Explore what makes pain frustrating, confusing and somewhat mysterious.

What is pain, anyway?

Let's get curious, ask a few questions. Explore this frustrating, changing, almost mysterious experience called pain.

During this webinar you will have a chance to explore what pain is like for you. Does it change, or is it always the same? Why might that be?

What does pain mean to you? Is it the same for everyone or does your pain seem different?

How does pain affect your life?

Is it possible to change your pain? Why does this seem so hard to do?

We'll take a short journey to look at these questions, provide some brief explanations and begin to make some sense of your pain.

You'll have opportunity to reflect on your own situation, ask questions, explore a little.

Jody is a Yoga Therapist (certifying), a Certified Pain Care Yoga Teacher, and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT500) with a particular interest in helping people with chronic or persistent pain. Though there can be a wide variety of other presenting conditions or concerns supported, as noted below.

She currently offers one-to-one yoga therapy sessions to people with a wide variety of health concerns, but primarily focuses in on those with complex pain conditions. She has experience working with people with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, pelvic pain, general musculoskeletal pain (low back, hips, shoulder, neck, feet are primary sources for many), and those experiencing pain during or recovery from cancer treatment. Along with pain, people often present with anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances and trauma related to their experience of living with pain on a day-to-day basis. Overarching many of these is chronic stress and disturbances to sleep.

With an understanding of a biopsychosocial approach to pain and it’s similarities to the holistic approach that yoga practices and philosophy offer, Jody integrates contemporary pain science along with supported self-management tools, techniques and practices.

Jody has completed a 2-year accredited yoga therapy program and expects to complete practicum requirements in 2022, which will allow for application to be Certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).
