I was cyber introduced to Melanie by John over a year ago when I began posting their Making Sense of Pain workshop. Since then we have met and whilst discussing many things about pain management, we had a cheers with the magnets that we use to start our stimulation devices for our chronic pains. We also commenced a very interesting discussion between us after I presented a plan for a new pain management strategy. Together we realised that we have something worthwhile to contribute.

The aim of this workshop is to provide physiotherapists and other health professionals with an opportunity to effectively translate their knowledge and skills into clinical practice. Of equal importance is that they become aware of their own beliefs and attitudes to people in pain and the potential for these attributes to colour therapeutic relationships and influence outcomes.

This is truly a thrilling post for me to finally be writing. I used to practise yoga 4 mornings a week for at least 45 minutes pre injury. After my warm up poses, my spine unravelling was eight minutes in shoulder stand, followed by another eight minutes in plough pose before Savasana (rest). So you can imagine how many times I’ve tried to get back to my yoga since knowing the benefits. i was always unsuccessful until I came across Dustienne’s Your Pace Yoga dvd. I still can’t work out what’s different, of course I’ve made progress but that can’t be the answer as it wasn’t so long ago I attempted cat/cow pose only to begin flaring. I’d say Dustienne’s sequence and breathing is definitely focused on opening, lengthening and creating space in the pelvis, it just feels great and I’m happy to report I’ve managed it once a week for over a month now. I know that’s not huge, but I’m blowing my trumpets that I could sustain one of the routines. I hope to get to both but my struggle lying on my back may prevent me.
