About This Event
- Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training program
- Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training: Principles
- Ananda Yoga® Therapy Training: Musculoskeletal–1
This course focuses on integrating subject matter learned and putting it into practical use for student/clients with primarily musculoskeletal issues. It builds upon the knowledge gained in Musculoskeletal I and their assigned practicum experiences. Anatomy and physiology are reviewed in the context of working with clients and communicating with health care providers.
Students will have opportunities to practice intake, evaluating, critical thinking skills, communication, and to lead and teach appropriate yoga therapy techniques including both subtle and gross interventions, conduct sessions, provide daily living advice, and give homework/home routines as appropriate to clients needs, constitution, and circumstances, and follow-up.
Prior to the residential section of this course, students will be required to view online yoga training videos, which include Power Point and lecture, case studies, therapeutic intervention instruction, professional development, and assignment information. Students will be required to do a number of tasks such as note taking during online case studies, take quizzes, write reflection essays, and do research on an assigned topic, which will culminate in a live talk/presentation during the residential aspect of their program.
During the residential portion of the course there will be follow-up on the assignments from the online training, as well as their practicum, which was assigned in Musculoskeletal I. All students are required to participate in the discussions. They will be trained in more acute care and hands-on training.
Private session and group session training will include lots of time for students to practice teaching with peer and faculty observation and feedback. There will be a clinic/practicum, where they will teach both group and private sessions under supervision of faculty, with a focus on integrating and practicing learned concepts, techniques, and skills.
