Jules and Michele combined forces to create a program that is integrative, holistic, proactive, and empowering. As yoga therapy enters the mainstream, concerns about scope of practice and teaching methods become more prevalent.  Yoga teachers, however, are continually expected to work with clients/students to either prevent injury, or to guide them through asana after they’ve completed rehab.  The more information on pathology, adaptation, recovery, pain science, and trauma sensitivity a teacher has, the better they are equipped to manage the gratifying responsibility of working with any population. Advance your education and experience to develop comprehensive tools that allow you to guide your clients/students in becoming engaged and inspired in their own health and vitality.

 

Application: Adaptation, Variability, and Modification

with Jules Mitchell

A revolutionary look at asana acknowledging normal and natural human variation that challenges the conventional script for teaching poses. The process of individual modification is complex, ever changing and multivalent, however inquiring into the intention of the posture in addition to developing an understanding of your client’s needs and goals makes this process much simpler. In this module we will look at how to individually modify asana according to numerous variables including: symptomology, medical diagnosis, posture, biomechanics, conversation and intuition.  Topics include:

 

  • Tendinopathies, ligament sprains, and muscle strains
  • Osteoporosis and osteopenia
  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Hypermobility syndromes
  • Histology and physiology
  • Myofascial pain and fibromyalgia
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Scoliosis

 

 

 

Methodology: Making Contact and the Art of Communication

with Michele Theoret

As research continues to support the value of exercise interventions and meaningful physical activities for the treatment, coping, and prevention of both physical and mental pathologies, the distinction between medical care, rehabilitation, physical therapy and training becomes less defined. Learn how language, behavior, procedure and clinical setting play important roles in the efficacy and legal protection of your yoga business. Integrate professional practices into your business to establish a network where clients/students are referred horizontally and vertically with ease and success. Understand the importance of listening, reflecting and summarizing your clients/students most important concerns in order to create a strong alliance where boundaries are honored and individuals are both empowered and inspired in their pursuit of health and vitality.

Topics explored through theory and case studies:

 

  • Scope of practice
  • Bio-medical ethics
  • The art of listening and non-judgmental communication
  • Compassionate inquiry
  • Intake
  • SOAP notes
  • Program design
  • Goals
