"Chronic Pain is one of the most pervasive, misunderstood and under-serviced health issues in the world today"


1.7 Billion*

* WHO (World Health Organisation)

People worldwide suffer from unresolved chronic back pain, joint and nerve pain and they are eagerly waiting for a new, science-based holistic approach that can free them from addictive painkillers, anxiety, and depression and give them the tools to move again with confidence


If you are reading this page,  you have probably realised that High-impact chronic neuromuscular-skeletal Pain presents a new challenge that doesn’t fall into the current

symptoms-focused health paradigm. 

When science tells us that there is no identifiable cause of pain 


That it is impossible to identify the cause of pain


We haven't been able to figure it out within the current health paradigm

and its associated level of mind 

NEW BACKGROUND alice standing assessment  FULL_.png

"With chronic pain, we need to go beyond symptoms-focussed interventions


Body, Mind and our Environment are all concerned!

It is the trilogy of all human experiences and we need to give it the science it deserves

"We need to look at the entire person experiencing the pain rather than just the Pain experienced by that person" Sylviane James

No stones will be left unturned


The human posture is more than the alignment 

of our joints, the working of our muscles and our nerves! Through the stress response, our posture tells the stories of our experiences, successes and failures.  It provides information about your sex, status, self-image, attitudes and emotional states. It embodies past physical and psychological traumas...

If you are a Yoga Teacher and a Therapist


You know that

Yoga is regarded as the safest exercise option by many Health Professionals and meditation is a powerful solution to psychological stress.  Yet when it comes to persistent neuromuscular skeletal pain, 

The reality is different

In fact, Yoga can perpetuate existing physical dysfunctions, and unresolved injuries and may even create new ones.

Many Yoga Teachers wonder if they should refer

Current training methodologies do not prepare them to face the reality of persistent neuromuscular skeletal pain. Understanding and addressing the complexities of these challenging physical and psychological conditions requires specific training.
