About This Workshop

In this 75-minute workshop Hayley Winter and Annelize Ferreira introduce a basic overview of pain anatomy and physiology. They explore where and how pain is produced, including the perception of pain and how pain can affect the emotional body. Hayley and Annelize provide a bite-size approach on this vast topic for yoga teachers to gain insights into the nature of pain.

About the Presenters

Hayley Winter is the founder of the Institute of Yoga Sports Science®, British, and lives in Brooklyn, New York. Over the past 30 years, Hayley has been a yoga educator, worked as a Yoga Sports Scientist, lectured internationally as a specialist in her field, served as an early pioneer of online yoga education, and worked as a member of the Yoga Alliance Online Education Working Group.

Twenty years ago, Hayley first started making connections between yoga and its benefits to athletes and identified how yoga was the missing link in strength and conditioning training. As a result, she spent the next 10 years working with athletes and their coaches—from the English Football Association to Performance Directors with the British Olympic Association—working across different sports with athletes of all ages and abilities. During this time, she developed Yoga Sports Science®, (YSS), and the Yoga Sports Coaching™ Courses providing world-class sports-specific yoga education to yoga, healthcare, and fitness professionals. For the past decade, Hayley and her team have been teaching yoga online and working with yoga teachers who want to specialize in delivering the benefits of yoga to athletes.

Annelize is the Consultant Physiotherapist for the Institute of Yoga Sports Science® (YSS), a Chartered Physiotherapist and an Advanced Yoga Sports Coach™. She has a Masters in Musculoskeletal Medicine, as well as extensive experience of neuro-musculoskeletal physiotherapy and sports rehabilitation and first-contact management through her work in the Ministry of Defence and private practice in the UK. Annelize shares her wealth of expertise on the YSS 40, 200 and 300-hour Courses for the Institute of Yoga Sports Science® (YSS).
