Integrating Yoga Therapeutics Into Rehabilitation

taught by Matthew J. Taylor, PT, PhD, C-IAYT

Course description

This 15 week, 3-hour, rolling enrollment, (you can start anytime),  self-paced graduate course was designed in collaboration with Hannah Millson, PT, DPT as her elective course in her doctor of physical therapy program at the University of Montana, Missoula, MT during the fall of 2016. The intention is to give graduate health professional students both a conceptual and experiential immersion in to how yoga therapeutics can be integrated in their future professional practice.

Each week has a didactic lecture video with citations, followed by an experiential practical class where those new principles are practiced and developed. Downloadable handouts for each are available, as is the audio file for the practice class.

Our intention is to have this course work take on a positive “viral” effect of accelerating the adoption of evidence-informed practices, but also as a powerful self-care tool of clinical mastery for the over-taxed graduate student.
