Pain Relief Yoga Ottawa
I, Eric Peters, suffered for almost 20 years from back and neck pain, having a severe back condition since I was 12 years old called scoliosis (curvature of the spine). I practice “Healing Yoga” almost every day to maintain a pain-free life for myself — and my students. I specialize in helping others deal with pain and discomfort , focusing on individuals with back pain, fibromyalgia and trauma. I offer a range of services including a 12 week yoga for pain course, along with private and group classes.
I will work with you, either together, or as an alternative, to medications and surgery. I have been teaching yoga full time for over 20 years, and it is my highest desire to share what I have learned with you. Please give yourself an opportunity to schedule a 30 minute free consultation, to discuss the best program that will fit your needs.
I am also the author of a book titled “Out of the Cage“, the story of how as a child suffering with scoliosis, I was able to overcome my pain through a regular yoga practice.

Are you suffering from pain?
The mind-body approach that yoga offers, is appropriate for all chronic pain sufferers. Yoga is such an amazing positive pain coping strategy because of increase in bodily awareness that reduces pain through the mind-body connection.
There is now ample evidence for the use of mind-body interventions in those with fibromyalgia , rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, chronic headaches, and irritable bowel syndrome. Is the pain your are experiencing occurring alongside burnout, spiritual uncertainties, stress, fear or depression? Is your back pain amplified because you’re worried, for example, about a sick parent? Do you feel overwhelmed at work? Are you angry at someone in your life? It is now a proven fact that our mental state changes in the way we perceive our pain, even if there is no damage to our tissues.
Pain relief Yoga’s greatest gift is its ability to activate the parasympathetic nervous system (the relaxation response) which is equated with greater pain tolerance as it:
Let us help..
We can help break the shackles..
