Pain Science - Yoga - Life Summary

Pain Science - Yoga - Life: Bridging neuroscience and yoga for pain care by Niamh Moloney

Pain Science Yoga Life combines the neuroscience of pain with yoga philosophy and practice for pain care. Rooted in evidence-based practice, this book is a unique blend of the science of pain, the art and science of yoga and its practical application. It aims to bridge the gap that exists between a person in pain and their ability to move beyond suffering and back to life.

Part One sets the foundation for pain science fundamentals, the Eight Limbs of Yoga, as well as mindfulness practices to aid in shifting perspectives and enhance interventions for those struggling with persistent pain.

Part Two delves into key dimensions of pain and its care, such as perception, emotions, physical contributions, exercise and sleep. Each chapter has three sections:

  1. Headspace: presents a review of pain neuroscience and yoga research related to each dimension.
  2. Out of the Head and onto the Mat: translates information from 'Headspace' into an experiential practice on the yoga mat.
  3. Off the Mat and into Life: demonstrates how to extend knowledge and practice into daily living.

Pain Science Yoga Life is a valuable resource for healthcare and yoga professionals, and is designed to deepen pain science knowledge and skills in the use of yoga for pain care. The combination of scientific information along with practice sections will enable professionals to directly apply the information in the clinic or studio. This book will also engage anyone who has an interest in deepening their understanding of pain and the use of yoga to gain resilience in the face of pain.

Her drive for compassionate, authentic interactions and connection to the good in all humans and the wild led her to a simple life and challenging practice in the bush community of Haines, Alaska. It was here that she first developed an interest in learning how to care for those in persistent pain. She quickly realized the supportive container that yoga held for people engaging in pain care. She has incorporated pain science education and yoga as part of her clinical care and teaching for nearly a decade. Marnie owns and operates a private physical therapy and yoga practice, and has been an instructor for the International Spine and Pain Institute, and an Education Contributor for Yoga Medicine.
