Event description

Description

This two-day course will introduce physiotherapists to using yoga therapeutically as a treatment and rehabilitation tool with patients.

Course overview

There is increasing evidence supporting the benefits of using yoga as a therapeutic tool to help in the management of many health conditions including musculoskeletal injuries, cancer rehabilitation, cardio-respiratory, stroke, pain management and stress management.

This course will cover key elements of yoga that can support a physiotherapy treatment approach including;

· Physical practice and postures - Asana

· Breath work - Pranayama

· Meditation and Mindfulness

Throughout the course you will learn and practice a selection of yoga postures;

· To understand how they feel and so how they may feel for patients

· To develop the skills to safely modify these postures for patients - considering alignment, available range of movement and the breath

· To bring these postures into an existing rehabilitation programme or design a yoga-based programme for patients

Assessment of breathing styles;

· Techniques to help aid relaxation of body and mind

· Full diaphragmatic breathing

· You will learn how to teach and facilitate breath work and short meditation-based mindfulness practices with your patients

A review of the many distinctive styles of yoga so you can safely and appropriately recommend classes for your patients.

Over the two days you will develop a clinically-based approach to include yoga as part of a treatment plan.

Yoga is experiential, so you also learn how yoga can help us as therapists to look after ourselves better.
