Description

Yoga Applications across the Lifespan

Yoga has become increasingly popular in the western mainstream world these days, but its therapeutic applications are relatively unknown to most rehabilitation clinicians. This recording is specifically designed for therapists! You will expand your therapeutic repertoire and improve client functions through incorporating yoga in nearly any setting. This material is highly useful for both adult and pediatric clients, and it can be used to assist with pain management too. In fact, yoga therapy can be used with the clients therapists struggle most to help!

Yoga for Therapeutic Rehabilitation will tap into your knowledge of anatomy and physiology (not to mention a little psychology) in order to enhance treatment plans for clients with issues ranging from multiple sclerosis and cancer to cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, and many orthopedic and neurological disorders. You will discover innovative ways to use props and equipment to assist your clients' therapeutic outcomes. You will view group breakout sessions in which you will discover ways to maximize function using yoga postures for clients in a wide array of settings. By incorporating yoga into your therapeutic practice, you will begin to see health care in a whole new, expanded way. Do not miss this exciting opportunity to bring yoga as a treatment modality to your clients.

This recording is designed for people of all skill levels. You do not need to be experienced with yoga to be able to watch this recording or integrate its benefits with clients!
