Yoga Teachers - Fill the gap between your teacher training and a safer, smarter teaching grounded in anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and therapeutics.
Based in London and New York, this is a tale of two physical therapist yoga teachers. Their quest: to improve awareness and safety for the 21st Century yoga teacher.
The field of using yoga therapeutically is rapidly expanding as students and others desire injury rehabilitation through less conventional methods. Yoga teachers are often the first person a student turns to when they have pain. The therapeutic application of yoga and its teachings are inherently deeply applicable to treating an injury.
Physiyoga is the merging of physical therapy principles with yoga. It is the practical application of applied anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and kinesiology into a yoga practice. As physical therapists and yoga teachers we have found that patients and clients get relief from pain and return to what they love faster through this integrative practice. Combining breath, mindfulness and asana with western therapeutic methods creates an approach that is holistic and thorough.
About the Physiyoga Global Certification
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 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 movement. They will understand the mechanics of breath, 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 skill 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.
