Yoga for Pain Relief

Pain is the language our bodies use to communicate imbalance. Our Yoga For Pain Relief program, based on discoveries Peter found and described in his award-winning book Gravity & Grace, will teach you how to “dialogue” with your body through patient observation and mindfully challenging the edge of possibility.

Does Pain Limit You From Enjoying Life?

Are you…

  • Struggling with chronic pain or past injuries?

  • Tired of taking pain medications?

  • Feeling weak and/or stiff?

  • Want to have more energy and feel better – physically and mentally?

  • Seeking to proactively protect your own wellness and longevity?

If you are looking for clear and simple guidance on how to create a powerful and highly effective body-mind practice that promises more balance, mobility and strength for many years to come… then you are in the right place!

Our Yoga for Pain Relief program is not about stretching for tight muscles, or weightlifting for weak muscles. We use a three-tiered novel approach to movement based on principles of yoga, which first softens areas of contraction or “grip” that our bodies instinctively create when in reaction to stress or trauma, and then uses gravity and breathing to build mobility, agility and strength.

Over the last two years, owning and running a yoga studio has taken a lot of the pure joy and magic of yoga out of me. LEVITYoGA online classes changed this for me. As a teacher I knew, trusted and respected, I was able to entirely surrender again to the practice with Peter's guidance. I didn't overthink it as I tended to do in other online or live classes - approaching yoga from a teacher mindset. Instead, I was able to let it unfold as a fully engaged student. Your book, your talks and your leadership in practice re-lit my spark. You really do have a gift when it comes to helping others connect to the subtle body and the real essence of yoga - of life.

Heike Mueller-TreptowCairo, Egypt

I was seeking community and profound professionalism to gently move me back onto my Yoga mat. Being an online member of a worldwide group of "yoga addicts" makes me content and so much lighter from the inside - it's a great relief to know that I do no longer have to practice on my own. After each session I feel that my body "claps in joy" from the inside as subtle sensations of warmth and notions of "life" are perceivable in my energy body.

I have been searching for a connection to my body that was more than just expensive leggings in a fancy pose, and with Peter's classes you learn from the ground up, building a relationship from the toe knuckles all the way on up to the crown of your head. Thanks to Peter's classes I have grown my own solid home practice that is, in my opinion, due to the extensive knowledge and anatomy that Peter teaches with these courses. Far superior to yoga classes being offered around me. I now feel that I can more accurately understand an area in need in my body, and how to respond to it with yoga.

Brandon WilliamsSao Paulo, Brazil

I am very grateful to have built my foundation with Peter’s teachings. I feel like I was taught with superior instruction, which showed through professional discipline and guidance of grace. The course was rich in posture technique with modern descriptions that makes any in-depth pose easier to execute and teach. This training was full of applicable information that will be remembered for a lifetime. Thanks Peter.

Ken KatzSalt Spring Island, BC Canada

Peter is a natural teacher. I spent 20 years studying with wonderful teachers and refining my home practice, yet deciding to do LEVITYoGA’s trainings with Peter exceeded my expectations in so many ways. Peter’s clear and thoughtful insights into yoga practice helped me deepen and refine mine. I am currently teaching classes now and owe a great deal of my success and gratitude to the LEVITYoGA team of Peter, Tawny and James.
