Move with less pain – online course
Move with less pain:
Most people hold pain or discomfort somewhere in their body, breath or mind.
Invariably they are also dealing with difficult emotions, interpersonal challenges, work stressors or life changes that create additional tensions.
A therapeutic approach to yoga teaches you how to effectively address these issues and find ways to ‘move’ and change both on, and off the mat.
Caroline’s understanding and application of pain management will benefit anyone experiencing chronic pain. It is not just her thorough knowledge in the latest pain management research, but her individualised and gentle approach which sets this course apart. As someone who assists people in chronic pain on a daily basis, I highly recommend this course for those looking for a greater understanding of pain and how to manage it without the use of medication or invasive techniques.

This is a 5 module course, available as an entire course or individual Modules:
Module 1: A contemporary understanding of pain
This module explores how your biology, psychology and social factors (called the biopsychosocial approach) influence your experience and recovery from pain. Practical tools and techniques are introduced that you can apply each day.
Module 2: Move with ease
This module provides video sequences of somatic (easeful) movement practices; yin poses for fascia re-patterning; and adaptations of classical yoga poses. These practices create a deeper awareness of your unconsciously held tensions.
Module 3: Rest
The focus of this module is how to activate the calm state of your nervous system. This module includes video set-up and practice of restful poses (with PDF documents); audio of targeted relaxation techniques.
Module 4: A good night’s sleep
It is well known that a restful night’s sleep improves most things, including your capacity to cope with physical discomfort. This module includes PDF and audio of breathing and meditation practices to invoke restful sleep, getting back to sleep, and dealing with wakefulness.
Module 5: Managing your emotions and mind
How the breath, emotions, and mind work together is the focus of this final module. This module includes exercises on imagery and metaphor; audio of specific breathing practices; video of mudra (hand positions) for balancing emotional states; audio of meditations (for sitting, lying, on the go); approaches from yogic philosophy.
I see several clients who suffer from chronic pain and know they will benefit greatly from Caroline’s comprehensive course. It is cleverly constructed, drawing on a range of evidence based approaches.
