More than a quarter of Americans have chronic pain symptoms lasting for months or years, and over half of these adults do not feel their pain is well-controlled. Chronic pain affects us on many levels, including the physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual, and even the social. The rich tradition of yoga addresses each level, making it an especially effective approach to working with pain.
