PAIN CARE AWARE™ 

About

Ready to say ‘bring it on’ and believe it when people with pain show up in your classes?

Join the movement - Become a Pain Care Aware™ teacher today!

PCA™ is a two-step training program that brilliantly combines yoga and science 

for addressing and preventing pain.

Based on traditional yoga philosophy and current pain science learn about the lived experience of pain, and what to do when someone has  pain during or after asana.

One in four people live with chronic pain so you HAVE people in pain in your classes whether you are ready for them or not so might as well get ready!
 
Meet that challenge with confidence, knowledge and compassion by becoming Pain Care Aware™.

Turn any style of yoga into a class that helps with injury prevention and pain.

LANGUAGE MATTERS 

What you say in class makes a difference

PCA™ provides an understanding of current pain science and cueing that fosters:

 

  • Compassion

  • Empowerment

  • Awareness

  • Curiosity

  • Discernment

 

CONFIDENTLY OFFER SAFETY IN YOUR CLASSES 

Build  your confidence as a teacher so  you can hold space with integrity and skill.

 

More and more people come to yoga as a non-pharmacological solution for pain and they are coming to you for guidance to help change their pain safely and effectively.

 

Yoga teachers experiencing persistent pain themselves will benefit both professionally and personally from the PCA™ program.

Pain Care Aware™ yoga teachers:

  • Offer greater safety with asana

  • Safely and compassionately empower students to  challenge their  limitations

  • Reconnect students to their true nature

  • Cue greater ease of movement

 

Pain Care Aware provides yoga teachers with the knowledge and skills needed to adapt their teaching language and class cueing to a pain-informed approach to teaching yoga.

With the best of intentions many of us teachers have been inadvertently fostering a sense of fragility and fear of damage in our students. 

By integrating yogic and scientific views of pain and pain care, Pain Care Aware™ prepares teachers to use  yoga to help change pain. 

Pain Care Aware arms teachers with pain care movement guidelines and gives yoga teachers the tools to influence a student’s pain during and after class.
