Cultivating Self-Compassion and Ease: Yoga for People with Persistent Pain with Shelly Prosko

“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete” ~Jack Kornfield

Yoga practices and teachings are rooted in compassion and regular practice can enhance our capacity for compassion, including self-compassion. Self-compassion and movement have each been shown to improve many aspects of our physiology and psycho-emotional health and can positively influence our pain experience. However, movement can also increase pain. How we move, the context within which we move, and the language we use in our self-talk or to guide people in pain during movement are all essential to consider for a safe and easeful yoga practice.

Join Shelly for this pain-informed asana class where she will guide you through a variety of yoga practices including awareness, breathing, and mindful movement, using Pain Care Aware movement guidelines, with a focus on the theme of self-compassion. 

Recommended props: a comfortable space to lie down, chair, 2 blankets or large bath/beach towels, 2 pillows or a bolster, any other props you know you often like to use.
