Service Description

This workshop has been approved by NJBPTE for 20.0 CEs.* Taught by a pelvic health specialist and 2 PTs who own a yoga teacher training school for health professionals, this workshop combines the best of a yoga retreat (a relaxed country setting & delicious food) with the best of a continuing education course (practical strategies that can be used on Monday morning with patients/clients). Participants will learn how a yogic approach can be used to help patients/clients and clients with pelvic health concerns including constipation, incontinence, pain, and pregnancy. Using a case-based approach, participants will view rehab sessions through two different lenses. One, through the lens of traditional examination and therapeutic interventions. The other, through the lens of a therapeutic yogic approach. Lectures will include a review of scientific literature that supports the practice of yoga for improving pain, dysfunction and well-being. Lab activities will allow participants to practice postures, breathing and meditation, and apply them to different patient populations. In addition, everyone will have 3.5 hours on Saturday afternoon to relax and renew by hiking, shopping, reading, sleeping, or skiing (whether permitting). Plus, who doesn’t love not having to cook or do dishes all weekend?! *Prior to the workshop, participants will be required to independently read and appraise scientific articles that will be the basis for discussion during the retreat. Course Objectives By the end of this course, participants will be able to: • Perform basic yoga postures, breathing and meditation techniques • Select postures, breathing and meditation techniques for patient populations • Appraise and describe the scientific articles on yogic approaches for patient populations • Compare and contrast traditional and yoga interventions for patient conditions This workshop will be held at the Landgrove Inn, Landgrove, VT.
