As promised, we’ve uploaded the content and resources from our 1st series of four classes under the ‘Mind-Body Strategies for Hypermobility and Chronic Pain program.’ This series of 4 classes was held in November at The Mindfulness Center. Additionally, we recently announced that The Mindfulness Center has extended an offer to hold our program weekly! Currently, the date and time of our program/class/movement-focused support group is Thursdays at 12 pm and is being conducted on a pilot basis. To read more about our weekly program, please visit Mind-Body Strategies for Hypermobility with Chronic Pain – a movement and mindfulness-based program and support group.
To register, please go to Mind-Body Strategies for Hypermobility with Chronic Pain Program and Support Group Registration.
***Please note that this program is held at The Mindfulness Center in Bethesda, MD., and is currently not offered at other locations and virtual attendance is not provided at this point. We are working on expanding our program online through both digital and “virtual” or live streaming options, and to other locations.***
The information and resources that we’ve gathered, including the program structure, content, and feedback provided by the attendees, are serving as the foundation for our more in-depth online ‘Mind-Body Strategies for Hypermobility with Chronic Pain’ program – a collaboration with Dr. Francomano and Dr. Norris, founder of The Mindfulness Center. Currently, we are working on finalizing program development, and plan to record the video content portion soon. We hope to offer our Mind-Body program online sometime in 2017. Additionally, we will be scheduling weekend workshops, some with a more specific focus, such as “Intro to Yoga for Hypermobility.” Details will be shared as soon as they are confirmed.
Thank you again for your support and feedback for this program!
