Integrating Yoga Therapeutics Into Rehabilitation

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

Course description

This 15 week, 3-hours per week (for CEU's there is a certificate for 9 hrs lecture and 12 hrs lab/experiential contact 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.

Excellent and Eye-Opening!

by Megan Kalinich
I greatly enjoyed this course! I learned so much that I have now begun to apply to my own patients. I was very happy about how this course is self-paced so that I could complete it when I had some free time. I am also very appreciative of the instructors and how attentive they were to this course through answering questions whenever one popped up. Thank you again for passing on all of your knowledge!

Highly recommend this online yoga therapeutics course for rehab professionals!

by Shelly Prosko
There is a growing trend of rehab professionals who are integrating yoga practices into their professional practices. Although this current trend seems to be soaring just recently, Matt Taylor has been one of our leaders and pioneers in this area of integrating yoga into rehab in a therapeutic, safe and evidence based manner for decades. This integration may help enhance the patient (and therapist!) experience, improve treatment outcomes by understanding and using a truly biopsychosocial-spiritual approach to care. It can assist in empowering patients to be actively and effectively involved in their own rehab and wellness. I was thrilled to see Hannah Millson and Matt Taylor team up to offer this incredibly affordable online course that includes a thorough, concise and extremely well organized curriculum that introduces the use of yoga methods and philosophy into rehabilitation. The multimedia offerings of videos, audio, pdf handouts, and following along powerpoint lectures provides the learner with a variety of options from which to learn, and keeps the course engaging and interesting. Matt's humour, compassion, wisdom, experience, clarity and kind heartedness does not go unnoticed. I have been integrating yoga into my physical therapy practice since 1998, and I am impressed with this online course and I have been highly recommending it to rehab professionals that are interested in learning more about the "how, what and why" of integrating yoga therapeutics into their professional practice. Thanks Matt and Hannah! Shelly Prosko

Great course!

Dr. Matt Taylor and Hannah have created a very comprehensive, easy to navigate, and relevant course that covers the basics of yoga and how to apply the techniques in our own lives and make them part of our rehabilitation sessions. I recommend this course for those that are new to yoga as well as those of us who are more experienced in yoga therapeutics.
