General - Chronic Pain and Yoga

25th September 2021
at Oxted Community Hall

General - Chronic Pain and Yoga

Tutor: Peter Blackaby

Date: 25th September 2021

Time: 10:00 - 15:45

Location: Oxted Community Hall

Type of Event: Open Day

Places Available: 5

Pete says, "During the past twenty years or so there has been a marked change in notions of how pain needs to be managed, in particular, chronic pain. This comes, in part from the needs of an ageing population and, in part from new research into pain.”

In addition to exploring the old view of pain and the new thinking, we will examine what yoga practices would be helpful for those suffering chronic pain and consider appropriate strategies for teachers to adopt in support of those students.

Pete describes his perspective on yoga as humanistic and says, "If we practice intelligently we can bring a greater sense of ease into our  bodies and discover the way little things that we do can make life more difficult. Integration emerges as we learn to lose those unhelpful little things.”


Pete is an osteopath who came to yoga via the teachings of Iyengar. He studied the work of Vanda Scaravelli before developing his style of humanistic yoga. He is a respected international yoga teacher and trainer teacher whose fully revised and rewritten book "Intelligent Yoga” Second Edition contains a new chapter on pain and how the body heals.
