Yoga for Endo and Pelvic Pain

7-Week Online Series with Sarah Garden

Endometriosis is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain

Yoga for Pelvic Girdle Pain with Shannon Crow
Endometriosis affects approximately 176 million people worldwide and is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain. People managing this disease can struggle with acute pain episodes, chronic pain, and other debilitating symptoms which can drastically impact quality of life.
 
Although there is no cure for endometriosis, Yoga and Yoga Therapy can provide an integrative approach to treating endometriosis, dysmenorrhoea (painful menstruation), and pelvic pain.
 
In this 7-week Yoga series, Yoga Therapist and Teacher Sarah Garden (she/her/hers) will guide us through the things we need to know for our students/clients dealing with endometriosis and its associated symptoms.
 
Using a biopsychosocial model, this workshop series will provide participants with a deeper understanding of endometriosis, its symptoms, and potential complications. We’ll also learn how other symptoms can be linked to endometriosis such as:
 
  • Dysmenorrhoea (painful periods)
  • Dysuria (painful urination)
  • Dyschezia (painful/difficult pooping)
  • Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
 
and how to use yoga therapy tools to treat them.
