This course is open to anyone wanting to understand yoga and its effects on the neurological system in relation to rehabilitation, stress reduction, chronic pain, and neuro-muscular facilitation
4-5 hour course including an optional yoga practice to wrap up the day.
Why is the neurological system so important when looking at the effects of yoga on the whole body?
Sensations from internal and external stimulus are perceived, interpreted, and responded to, by our neurological system. Some of these responses are done consciously, and others unconsciously. This perception and response to stimulus is vital for homeostasis within the body, and makes up our experiences- pain, pleasure, memories, learning, self awareness and so much more. What if we knew we could use intentional movement and meditation to effect the neurological system, therefore effecting our experiences- pain, pleasure, memories, learning, self awareness and so much more? How can we share this practice with others to help them free themselves from pain, experience pleasure more easily, face and release painful memory, fortify new memories (habits/patterns) fortify new learning (thought patterns, muscle memory) and empower self awareness with self love and nurturing?

Jada is the founder of Yogascience.ca. She lives on the Southwest Coast of Vancouver Island where she practices Massage Therapy in a physiotherapy clinic. She is a mother of two, a student of the health sciences, and a lover of all things nature. “When I started practicing yoga,Iwas looking for a deeper connection to my physical body, as I had shifted into planning for motherhood and wanted to prepare my body for what pregnancy would bring. I never imagined how profound the practice would be for me, not just physically, but spiritually” Jada continued with her personal practice for many years before taking her first Teacher Training. “It was in my first training that I recognized the powerful platform yoga had given me for my personal transformation.” She continued to study Patanjali’s Sutras and the 8-limbed path, and continues to be a student in her own Yoga practice and lifestyle. “It has given me an endless learning path, one that leads to more clarity and balance.” Jada provides a grounded, safe space for her students to look deeper within themselves, and empowers her students to connect with the body’s innate desire to heal itself. Her Teachings focus on evidence based information, but do not lack the intangible magic and spirit that is yoga.
