Approved Professional Development
Two online APD Courses on Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis
Yoga, Multiple Sclerosis and Other Neurological Challenges
I am happy to announce that I now offer two online Approved Professional Development (APD) courses for Continuing Education (CE) for yoga teachers and yoga therapists.
I am happy to offer a 2.5 hour ‘quick study’ course that includes a workshop followed by a focus discussion and Q&A!!
See details below. Email inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally, I have expanded the previous APD training course to 15 hours of Continuing Education that can be delivered online over the course of 6 days of 2.5 hours per day. The course will offer an expanded focus on an approach to working with persons with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological challenges.
Both courses are open to Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers (CIYTs) and Certified Yoga Therapists (C-IAYTs).
APD QUICK STUDY COURSE DETAILS
Details of Next Dates TBA
A recording will be available for those who cannot attend the live workshop.
The 3 hour course (2 hour asana led workshop, followed by a 30-60minute Q&A) offers an introduction for those wishing to learn strategies to confidently harness the therapeutic healing power of yoga, under the lens of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Open to ambulatory persons with MS (must be able to get down to and up from floor), as well as for yoga teachers and yoga therapists looking for ways to support their students.
We will look at the scope of what MS can entail, address common symptoms (e.g., balance, fatigue, vertigo) and employ principles and strategies rooted in Iyengar Yoga to help mitigate symptoms, enhance mobility and slow disease progression through a led asana practice.
A 30-60 minute Focus Discussion/Q&A session follows the workshop.
To receive C-IAYT APD Continuing Education Credit, attendance in the Focus Discussion/Q&A session is required.
Offers 3 hours Continuing Eduation hours towards recertification.
