Yoga & Beyond | The Yoga and Movement Science Podcast
About This Show
More critical thinking. Less dogma.
I started this podcast to share engaging discussions that stimulate our thinking about WHY and HOW we teach. For me, the "beyond" part reflects how yoga fits into to the bigger picture of human movement and science. I interview authors, biomechanists, physical therapists, pilates teachers, rolfers, chiropractors, yoga teachers, anatomy teachers and more, all with the goal of expanding our knowledge about the body and how we move. There's a lot of misinformation in the yoga world (and fitness world) and I hope to cut through that to provide more grounded, science based information.

Y&B #60 - Can VR Technology Alter Pain Perception?
Can virtual reality technology affect pain perception? Well, yeah. Catherine Cowey and I discuss a fun study about this co-authored by Lorimer Moseley in 2015 in the Psychological Science Journal. The researchers used VR technology to give subjects (with a history of neck pain) the illusion that they had moved their neck more or less than they actually had. As they hypothesized, this had an effect on their perception of pain.
