Description

We are thrilled to be offering the first training in yoga therapy for cardiovascular conditions in the UK. Taught by expert cardiac research nurse Sherezade Ruano, this six day course will prepare yoga teachers, yoga therapists and health professionals to safely deliver yogic practices and complementary care to individuals presenting with existent cardiovascular disease or in need of cardiac rehabilitation.

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) remains the largest cause of mortality around the world. Many cardiovascular conditions are the result of a combination of stress, poor diet, infrequent exercise, and tobacco, which can be prevented by lifestyle modifications present in yoga, therefore, yoga is an increasingly attractive mode of preventative medicine. Research reveals that people who practice yoga are less likely to experience a cardiac event. Further, in the 1990s renowned cardiologist, Dean Ornish, conducted landmark research demonstrating that a holistic yoga interventions including dietary management, yoga, stress management groups, and exercise – could actually reverse various forms of cardiovascular disease and significantly reduce the need for surgery. This ground-breaking finding has changed the perception of cardiovascular management. Sherezade has trained with Nischala Joy Devi, who originally developed the yogic portion of the Dr Ornish Program. She has combined this with her knowledge and expertise as an arrhythmia nurse to create unique interventions supporting cardiac health and improved treatment of cardiac conditions.

Driven by medical outcomes, this training covers:

  1. An in depth exploration of the cardiovascular system.

  2. The rationale beyond yoga’s value in improving cardiovascular health.

  3. How the nervous system, respiratory system, and cardiovascular system work together.

  4. Common cardiac conditions, which respond well to yoga.

  5. Research verifying yoga’s role in heart health.

  6. Asana, pranayama, and meditation that is safe and highly effective for heart patients.

  7. Best practice, scope of practice, and precautions.

  8. Life style management advance that can be offering by yoga teachers, therapists, and health care providers.

  9. The role of yoga philosophy in changing negative habits and empowering patients to take better care of themselves.

  10. How to speak to clinicians about yoga’s role in cardiac rehabilitation and secondary prevention.

What can I do with this training?

You will be able to work with a wide range of cardiac conditions, specifically people with Chronic Heart Failure, Arrhythmias, Hypertension, and even patients who recently experienced a heart attack more than two weeks ago. To help you establish relationships and support your work, you will also be given access to two different documents with specific protocols designed by Sherezade. One document is for patients and one for consultants, addressing their different needs and concerns.

At the end of the training students will receive certificates of attendance validated by both the Minded Institute and the Yoga Alliance UK.
