Yoga has the potential to support patients with a range of health conditions and is gradually being integrated into healthcare in many countries.

Although healthcare professionals are essential to this integration, there has been no research into their perception of yoga for health, their willingness to recommend yoga to patients and the barriers to doing so.

On-line continuing education (EN) :
"Yoga Therapy & Mindfulness for Chronic Pain"

Chronic pain is one of the most widespread health problems in the world. Increasingly, mindfulness and yoga therapy are being used in the treatment and management of chronic pain. A training course on this subject will be given by Raquel Chinchetru, a yoga therapist for chronic pain within the NHS in the UK.

In this course, she will share her practical and academic knowledge, enabling yoga and healthcare professionals to use yoga therapy and mindfulness with patients suffering from chronic pain. As pain is present in nearly every state of health, the insights gained from this course are applicable to a wide range of patients in addition to those suffering from chronic pain.
