In this training you will learn:

-The altered anatomy, biomechanics, and physiology of each disease process and their respective functional deficits
-The mind-body principles behind yoga that have helped students living with trauma, loss or disability live fuller, richer lives.
-Yoga postures appropriate for students with all types of disabilities and their therapeutic advantages, contraindications, and modifications
-How yoga can help to reduce pain, build muscle mass and bone, and foster a healthy lifestyle to supplement physical and medical therapies.
-Understand the science behind supported poses using breathing, meditation, and visualization to increase motor skills and activate the parasympathetic response to optimize relaxation and function.
