Chronic pains can be caused by various issues such as: a sedentary job, auto accidents, injuries, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes, cancer and multiple sclerosis. Chronic pain can worsen over time and negatively affect other areas of the body if it isn't healed and managed properly. It can also prevent us from living our best life and having quality of life. The great news is that chronic pain can be minimized and successfully managed using yoga, yogic stretches, yogic breath techniques and meditation. But for many who suffer from chronic pain, it is difficult to participate in an hour long or more yoga class. And depending on the severity of the pain, an hour long yoga or exercise class can worsen the symptoms.
This course is a structured, 16 week course, where students can learn and apply the tools taught in the course to successfully manage chronic pain and re-gain quality of life using a whole body stretch routine, yoga, yogic breath and meditation. There are no start or end times for the course making this online course flexible to all students. And the weekly plans start students at a gentle 10-15 minute routine. The course can be completed in 4 months but students can take as much as time as needed to complete the course. This online course includes video tutorials, video presentations, modification videos, course content, weekly practice plans, a downloadable 50 page how-to yoga book, a downloadable track/schedule, downloadable progress sheet and a downloadable 8 week post course yoga plan.

Juanita believes she has experienced psychological, physical and neurological sickness her whole life for a reason, "It's difficult to understand and help those who are sick, unless you've been sick too. I needed to heal myself first so as to understand how to heal and help others improve their health and achieve a high quality of life."
