Mindful Yoga for Chronic Pain

Professional training for yoga teachers, physical therapists, and other health professionals at OHSU.

Mindful Yoga for Chronic Pain is a seven-day professional training program offered to registered yoga instructors, physical therapists, and other health professionals. Mindful Yoga, as applied in clinical trials of the “Yoga of Awareness” intervention (see Research), has been shown to help people experiencing persistent pain to minimize pain, fatigue and emotional distress while increasing vigor, acceptance, and relaxation. This professional training will introduce the skills needed to teach mindful yoga-based practices to persons who experience chronic pain. This training will also introduce participants to how the Yoga of Awareness Program unfolds.
