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.

·       Meditation and Mindfulness

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

·       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.
