Eligible clientele:

All licensed health professionals interested in improving clinical outcomes, wishing to practice from a more BPSS lense and interested in integrating yoga into health care. 

Fields of clinical practice for which this course is applicable

Concepts and tools learned in this course will have immediate clinical applicability. Because of its broad based therapeutic effects, Medical Yoga Therapy can be used in an array of clinical environments and with varied patient populations. Some examples, but not limited to these: MSK/Orthopaedics (all conditions), Neurology (Parkin- son’s, MS, ALS, Stroke, etc), Arthritis (OA and RA), Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Pelvic floor Pain/Dysfunction, Post-Surgical Conditions, Cancer, Cardiorespiratory, Obesity, Diabetes, Chronic Stress, Mental Health, etc..


This is a 1 day introductory course for health care professionals (HCPs) on how to integrate yoga into their clinical practice. Prior yoga experience a strong asset but not absolutely necessary. HCPs with knowledge of anatomy, and prior experience in observing and evaluating posture and movement, would reap the most benefit from this course.
