Integrating Remedial Exercise into Clinical Practice – Yoga Therapy

According to the most recent recommendations from the American College of Physicians, massage therapy is most effective as a pain treatment intervention when combined with patient education and or exercise. This same paper also identified yoga as an effective movement therapy/exercise intervention.

This course is designed to teach in-house and homecare patient tools, using yoga therapy as resistance exercise, as mindfulness exercise and as a way to stimulate the autonomic nervous system. How to guide RMTs and yoga teachers in how to integrate these tools into their practice. We will refer to research and evidence based interventions to design the most effective protocols for remedial exercise and homecare. Yoga interventions will target key areas and conditions both MSK and systemic. Principles learned may be applied to other forms of therapeutic movement. Open to all HCPs, Yoga teachers and students. Those who have attended the Anatomy & Yogasana courses will benefit greatly from this course.

You will have a better understanding of how and when to incorporate remedial care, homecare or yoga therapy into your practice, be better able to time manage and be confident with integrating appropriate protocols based on evidence and best practices. You will be doing a lot of partner work, yoga and hands on practice in this course.
