This course is designed to teach in-house and homecare patient tools, using yoga therapy as resistance exercise, as mindfulness exercise and as a way to stimulate the autonomic nervous system. How to guide RMTs and yoga teachers in how to integrate these tools into their practice. We will refer to research and evidence based interventions to design the most effective protocols for remedial exercise and homecare. Yoga interventions will target key areas and conditions both MSK and systemic. Principles learned may be applied to other forms of therapeutic movement. Open to all HCPs, Yoga teachers and students.
