This module builds off the information from Yoga Therapy 1 & 2, Anatomy 1&2, Mind-Body-Energy and Postures to Prayers, focusing on postural assessment, gait analysis, intake evaluation, and working with professional (medical) diagnosis in order to offer effective Yoga Therapy for individual client needs. Much of the learning is experiential, including how to do a quick assessment based on intuition as well as how to do a thorough musculoskeletal analysis consisting of physical examination and range of motion tests. We will learn to create and conduct mental/emotional evaluations in order to asses progress and adapt the Yoga Therapy Program or refer to a professional when necessary.
