The terms chronic pain and persistent pain are often used interchangeably. Generally, pain is said to be chronic if it persists beyond the normal healing time of about three months. Chronic pain may arise from an initial injury, such as a shoulder sprain, or there may be an ongoing cause, such as illness. In many cases however, there is no clear cause. Other health problems, such as fatigue, sleep disturbance, decreased appetite, and mood changes often accompany chronic pain. Chronic pain may limit a person’s movements, which can reduce flexibility, strength, and stamina. This difficulty in carrying out everyday tasks and enjoyable activities often lead to loneliness, isolation, anxiety and depression.
Laprana has designed a unique program that helps to alleviate chronic pain on both psychological and physiological levels. This program, specifically designed to foster mindfulness and increase mind-body awareness, is tailored to suit you and your body’s particular needs. The program includes:
• Specialized yoga asana routine
• Pranayama breathing techniques

• Deep progressive body relaxation
Note: External Ayurvedic medical advice and treatment by a certified Ayurveda practitioner is highly recommended for individuals with Chronic Pain to provide crucial dietary, lifestyle, herbal and detoxification assistance.

BPsych(Hons) & Registered Yoga Teacher
My aim is to improve the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of the individual using a holistic, mind-body model of wellness. I take a philosophical, person-centred approach as I work together with the client to uncover the underlying issue at hand. By identifying the root cause of an issue, I believe we can more readily achieve transformative, lasting wellbeing. Based on the premise that every individual is complex and unique; treatment is tailored and personalised to suit the particular physical, mental, emotional and social needs of each individual.
After completing my Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) at Queensland University of Technology, I travelled to India where I completed my yoga teacher training course. Since then, I have lived between Brisbane, Byron Bay and Melbourne, working both nationally and internationally to integrate my passions in yoga and psychology.
By layering and melding ancient Eastern Yoga philosophy with more contemporary Western models of psychology, the profound principles buried in each of them become clearer and stronger, and an intensity of effectiveness becomes possible. Using a synergistic blend of techniques from both East and West, I believe deeply transformative, whole-self healing is possible.
