Mind-Body Strategies for Hypermobility and Chronic Pain

 

When? Coming Late Winter 2017! Thursday afternoons at 12 pm

Where? Classes will be held each week at The Mindfulness Center in Bethesda, MD.

A Mindfulness and Movement-based support group program. Program implementation is scheduled for late Winter 2017 and was first offered to the public in a series of 4 classes – free of charge. To learn more about this program and the series of 4 classes that were held in November, please visit MIND-BODY STRATEGIES FOR HYPERMOBILITY AND CHRONIC PAIN Begins today!

The Mind-Body Strategies for Hypermobility and Pain program is a joint collaboration with Dr. Clair Francomano and Dr. Deborah Norris of The Mindfulness Center in Bethesda, Md. Research and virtual attendance (or online availability of course content) is planned for Spring – Summer 2017. 

Topic 1:

Basic principles of mindfulness, intro to yoga, and biology of hypermobility, including a short, but gentle chair yoga practice (10 mins). This seminar/workshop is 1st of 4 in the Mindfulness and Yoga for Hypermobility series.

Topic 2:

Practicing Yoga safely with Hypermobility and Chronic Pain – Instruction on positions and modifications with hypermobility, including 20 min gentle flow practice. This seminar/workshop is the 2nd of 4 in a series of Mind-Body strategies for hypermobility and chronic pain.

Topic 3:

Mind-Body Therapies for Hypermobility – Discussion about Dr. Francomano’s study on mindfulness for hypermobility and John Kabat-Zinn’s mindfulness program, including 30 min meditation/restorative yoga practice. This seminar/workshop is 3rd of 4 in the Mindfulness and Yoga for Hypermobility series.

Topic 4:

Vinyasa Flow yoga for hypermobility and chronic pain. A quicker paced, yet still restorative practice. We will be moving the entire class. All levels welcome. This class is the 4th in a series of 4 workshops/seminars on Mind-Body strategies for hypermobility and chronic pain.

The hope is to offer the Mind-Body Strategies for Hypermobility and Chronic Pain program, as well as additional yoga for Hypermobility classes on going through The Mindfulness Center and possibly other venues.
