Over 100 million Americans are living with chronic stress and pain. Safe, effective treatments are hard to come by, but research has shown that yoga can improve life for people with chronic pain and stress conditions. In this workshop, Neuroscientist and Yoga teacher Stephani Sutherland, PhD will:
• Provide an overview of the nervous and endocrine systems and how they are intimately linked to each other.
• Provide an overview of how stress effects our endocrine system and the detrimental toll it takes on our body.
• Provide an overview of how we experience pain--from sensory nerves in the skin all the way to the highest brain centers
• Discuss how yoga can help alleviate stress, pain and suffering by affecting the nervous and endocrine systems at multiple levels.
