Warm holiday wishes.
This newsletter is coming later in the month because the first half of December was a very full time for me. One exciting and yoga-related part of that fullness was the opportunity to take a course in Pain Care Yoga with Neil Pearson. Neil is a physiotherapist and yoga therapist, the Founding Chair of the Canadian Physiotherapy Pain Science Division, a board member with Pain BC, and a Clinical Assistant Professor at University of British Columbia. Needless to say, he is a big deal in the world of helping people find relief from persistent pain, and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to study with him. Neil is also supporting the work I am doing through Pain BC to educate physicians and health care practitioners on the value of using yoga techniques to address persistent pain.
I am going to be teaching a lot in the New Year, and you can read all about what I am doing below. I've also come across a great deal of fascinating stuff in the past month (and a half), so there are a lot of articles, posts, and ideas to explore! I hope you enjoy reading though.
I wish you a wonderful holiday season full of love, laughter, and yoga and a peaceful New Year.
