A growing number of people with pelvic disorders are turning to yoga therapy. Pain, dysfunction, disease or trauma can manifest in many different ways. Therefore yoga therapy’s multifaceted approaches can be quite helpful. In this course, we will study both the male and female pelvic anatomy to learn how musculoskeletal imbalances impact pelvic function. We will also look at some common conditions that either contributes to or are caused by pelvic floor disorders, including incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and fertility.
Fascia is a key structural component of the body. As such, it contributes to the physical well-being of our bodies and is often indicated in pain and dysfunction. In this course we will learn all about fascia and its relationship to structure and health. Students will learn how to identify facial lines in the body and the restrictions within them. There will also be an emphasis on common fascia-based pain patterns and how to shift fascia through asana and pranayama techniques. Students will leave with a clear understanding of how to work with bodies using a fascial viewpoint to relieve pain patterns.
Students will examine working with cancer patients through the koshic model—learning to effectively and safely teach asana, pranayama, and meditation with a clear understanding of contraindications for this population.
