1 in 5 Australians have persistent pain, which means it affects you or someone you love. Yoga can help, but not in the way you'd think.

Rachael left a promising engineering career due to chronic pain and ended up running away to the circus. It was there Rachael realised there had to be a better way to help people with persistent pain.

She studied a degree in Yogic Education at the University of Lille and returned to Australia to establish Finding Yoga. Rachael is now bringing her unique approach to health care to Australian communities.

Health professionals and yoga teachers nationally come to Rachael to train in Yoga for Pain. From Gippsland Victoria to Bunbury Western Australia, Finding Yoga's programs are changing the way we think about health.

Rachael also has a degree in civil engineering and in 2016 spoke at the 36th Annual Pain Scientific Meeting about the role of yoga in pain management.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
