About the Physiyoga Global Method 

Physiyoga teachers have a deep understanding of the “why” of the body, mind and breath. They can use this knowledge to assess students and identify suboptimal and dysfunctional patterns.  

Students look to yoga teachers for help with injuries whether from yoga or other areas of their lives. There is a relationship and understanding that their teacher truly cares for their wellbeing and safety in class. 

A physiyoga global(™) certified teacher will be highly versed in movement assessment and have a strong sense of the musculoskeletal and physiological causes and implications of suboptimal and dysfunctional movement.  They will understand the mechanics of breath, the neurological considerations of re-training the musculoskeletal system, and the deep integration of fascia and other connective tissue with the nervous system as it impacts the way we move. 

This knowledge will provide the phyisyoga teacher with the skills to address injury and provide specific guidance at a higher, more professional level through precise and accurate hands on adjustments, modifications, and cues to their students in a 1:1 or group setting.


Topics that will be addressed include:

  • A review of common orthopedic pathologies, their causes, how to modify including
    • hip impingement, labral tears, psoas snapping
    • rotator cuff injury, shoulder impingement
    • disc injuries, spinal facet joint arthropathy 
    • plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, ankle sprains
    • ACL and meniscus injury, patellofemoral pain
    • epicondylitis of the elbow and wrist injuries
  • Musculoskeletal anatomy as it pertains specifically to asana practice including joint mechanics and special considerations 
  • Assessment of movement using the Physiyoga Global Method
  • A deep understanding of why sub-optimal movement occurs, what those implications are on the body, and how to fix them
  • How muscular timing, coordination, and relaxation affects pain
  • How to obtain mobility and stability in feet, hands and limbs
  • How to obtain joint stability and mobility in the girdles (scapular and pelvic)
  • The importance of segmental mobility in the spine, how it relates to pain and the rest of the body
  • The importance of the windlass effect in the feet, why it can become impaired, what that effect is on the rest of the body
  • The mechanics of breath, including limitations regarding the diaphragm, the rib cage and other factors
  • The stacked core canister model
  • Overview of fascial lines and kinetic chains of movement
  • Discussion about fascia, its role in injury, how yoga affects fascia, how fascia affects yoga
  • Planning 1:1 sessions to release, retrain, and optimize movement when injury is present
  • How mindfulness actually works and how to use it
  • Neuroplasticity as it relates to movement
  • How to improve sub-optimal movement patterns to more optimal patterns
  • Nature vs nuture when it comes to therapeutic exercise
  • Improving safety in classes through specific cues, modifications and hands-on adjustments
  • Cueing for optimal alignment, muscular recruitment, and movement patterns 
  • The resultant aim of the course is to give you the tools to teach people to move better, more optimally and therefore improve health and prevent injuries from occuring.
