Yoga is becoming increasingly popular as a mainstream, western discipline, but its clinical therapeutic applications are relatively unknown to most rehabilitation clinicians. This seminar is specifically designed for you, the therapist! You will expand your therapeutic repertoire, as well as improving client functions with the incorporation of yoga into a vast array of clinical settings. This material is highly useful for both adult and pediatric clients, and it can even be used to assist with pain management too. Yoga therapy will even help the clients you struggle most to help! 

 

Yoga for Therapeutic Rehabilitation taps into your knowledge of anatomy and physiology (not to mention psychology) in order to enhance treatment plans for clients who suffer from multiple sclerosis, cancer, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, and many other orthopedic and neurological disorders. Participants will learn new and innovative ways to use props and equipment to assist their clients’ therapeutic outcomes. You will have the opportunity to problem-solve and apply what you learn in breakout sessions, during which you will practice techniques to maximize function for clients in a wide array of settings. By incorporating yoga into your therapeutic practice, you will begin to see healthcare in a whole new way. Do not miss this exciting opportunity to bring yoga as a treatment modality to your clients. This seminar is designed for people of all skill levels. Participants do not need to be experienced with yoga to be able to attend this seminar or integrate its benefits with clients!
