Yoga is one of the most popular complementary health practices in North America and is steadily gaining popularity as an effective approach used by healthcare professionals to help people with a variety of conditions including chronic pain. Yoga therapy offers a framework that is person-centered, empowering, compassionate, evidence-informed and includes addressing the whole person. Yoga techniques offer accessible, safe and cost-effective practices that can be integrated into any rehabilitation program in the clinic or used independently at home. A rapidly increasing number of clinicians and rehabilitation professionals are integrating yoga into pain care partly due to the growing evidence that shows yoga can improve patient outcomes, function and quality of life in many populations.

Shelly Prosko is a physiotherapist, yoga therapist, pioneer of PhysioYoga, and educator with over 20 years of experience integrating yoga into physiotherapy and working with people in pain. She offers online and onsite courses for yoga and health professionals and workshops for people in pain, teaches in physiotherapy and yoga programs, presents at yoga and medical conferences globally, contributes to academic research and writing, and provides mentorship to health professionals. Shelly is a Pain Care U Trainer and is co-editor/author of the textbook Yoga and Science in Pain Care: Treating the Person in Pain. She maintains a clinical practice in Sylvan Lake, Alberta.

This series has been brought to you by the College of Medicine Alumni Association. All sessions are FREE to attend however donations are encouraged. Funds received will support Medical Students' charitable initiatives through sponsorship. Questions? Please email annemarie.cey@usask.ca
