Chronic Pain Qigong Livestream

Coming soon!

A new monthly online livestream will start in December 2019 for those living with chronic pain who would like to explore gentle and powerful movements for both mind and body.  Join instructor Nicola from the warmth and comfort of your own home for an hour of self discovery, discussion and practice in a private and welcoming community. Everyone attending the live stream will be living with chronic pain and share similar experiences as you.

Nicola lives with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and understands personally the impact on all areas of life living with chronic pain creates. These 'Hibernating Bear' lessons are designed to help ease pain levels, decrease fatigue, reframe how you respond to pain, boost the happy brain chemicals, improve all functions of the body and release mental and physical tension. All to help you live well with your pain.
