Pain Science – Yoga – Life

Bridging neuroscience and yoga for pain care

£29.95 GBP / $40.00 USD Free delivery in the UK and USA

Pain Science – Yoga – Life combines the neuroscience of pain with yoga philosophy and practice for pain care. Rooted in evidence-based practice, this book is a unique blend of the science of pain, the art and science of yoga and its practical application. It aims to bridge the gap that exists between a person in pain and their ability to move beyond suffering and back to life.

Part One sets the foundation for pain science fundamentals, the Eight Limbs of Yoga, as well as mindfulness practices to aid in shifting perspectives and enhance interventions for those struggling with persistent pain.

Part Two delves into key dimensions of pain and its care such as, perception, emotions, physical contributions, exercise, and sleep. Each chapter has three sections:

  1. Headspace: presents a review of pain neuroscience and yoga research related to each dimension.
  2. Out of the Head and onto the Mat: translates information from ‘Headspace’ into an experiential practice on the yoga mat.
  3. Off the Mat and into Life: demonstrates how to extend knowledge and practice into daily living.

Pain Science – Yoga – Life is a valuable resource for healthcare and yoga professionals, and is designed to deepen pain science knowledge and skills in the use of yoga for pain care. The combination of scientific information along with practice sections will enable professionals to directly apply the information in the clinic or studio. This book will also engage anyone who has an interest in deepening their understanding of pain and the use of yoga to gain resilience in the face of pain.

 

 

Internationally renowned pain experts Lorimer Mosely and David Butler comment on Pain Science – Yoga – Life:

‘As a pain scientist and educator, I regularly sit on the cutting edge with the very people driving scientific revolutions. The very best moments however, are those shared with true champions, striving for better outcomes at the coalface. Marnie and Niamh are two such champions – applying sharp minds and generous hearts to serve, with integrity, intent, kindness and care, those they treat. And here they both are – yoga within the context of contemporary scientific understanding of pain? That sounds pretty good to me.’   Lorimer Moseley

‘Yoga is at least 5,000 years old. Pain sciences are maybe 40 years. Both areas offer each other enormous resources and wisdom for the benefit of mankind. ‘Pain Science – Yoga – Life’ promotes the numerous practical and novel ways yoga and pain sciences are potentially made for each other.’   David Butler
