Yoga: A Holistic Approach for Rehabilitation Across Disciplines #233

 

SUN, 30 OCT // 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM

Primary Content Focus:  Clinical practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP)

This course will challenge rehabilitation professionals to examine a yogic approach for health and function and to compare this approach with interventions commonly performed in a clinical setting. Lectures about the philosophy, styles and science of yoga, including asana (postures) pranayama (breathing) and meditation will be interactive and include a critical review of peer-reviewed literature. The hands-on portion of the course allows participants to experience a multi-modal approach to patient care through the practice of asana, pranayama and meditation that is supported by scientific evidence. Suggestions will be made for integrating a holistic approach to patient care across rehabilitation disciplines.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Perform basic yoga asanas/postures, meditation and breathing practices
  2. Integrate elements of yogic practices into different clinical practices and settings
  3. Explain the scientific literature of yoga, meditation and breathing practices as applied to client and patient populations
