Chronic pain is multi-dimensional and can impact our everyday living, functions, and sleep. Research shows that yoga—and restorative yoga, in particular—aids in reducing the effects of chronic pain. In this workshop, Angelique will guide you through supported poses, pranayama, and guided meditation to initiate the relaxation response. This balancing of the nervous system encourages the body and mind to quiet, allowing space for rest and renewal and, in turn, creating conditions that can help reduce pain.

Practicing for more than a decade, Angelique has learned through personal experience and her work with students that yoga can be a powerful tool in recovering from injuries, working through grief and anxiety, and managing chronic pain.

Here's what previous Restorative Yoga for Chronic Pain students have to say:

 I have felt lighter and stronger and more grounded since leaving the studio yesterday.... Angelique is incredible and I feel really grateful to practice with her. - J.S.

Far exceeded expectations - this was superb! -A.W.

The slowness of the poses allowed for deep breathwork that really focused on pain points. -J.C.

This was a deeply restorative practice for me. I regularly practice Yin and iRest, but this felt even more therapeutic. I felt the deep relaxation throughout my body and mind into the following day. -L.T.

This practice is accessible to everyone. No prior yoga experience is required. This workshop will be offered in studio and online. It will be in the first floor studio.

A recording of the workshop will be available for playback within 48 hours of the workshop, and registrants will have access to the recording for 30 days.
