According to the National Library of Medicine-National Health Institutes, chronic pain can lead individuals to a number of adverse emotions, including anxiety, guilt, and disturbed belief systems.

Studies have shown that yoga and meditation can combat some of these negative emotions.

Yoga teacher Becca Broughton and health psychologist Doug Herr, Psy.D., lead a four-week group class at the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Vanderbilt that combines support, skills training and therapeutic movement to help those who struggle with chronic pain.

"Without relying only on medications and doctors, but using your own internal resources and practises to help and promote self-care, part of the group is group therapy and education around ways to make your life better,"Without relying only on medications and doctors, but using your own internal resources and activities to help and encourage self-care, group therapy and education are part of the group on how to make your life better.

Broughton says persons with chronic pain are sometimes unable to function as well as they once did, sometimes not at all.
