Course Description: We will explore the causes of normal and abnormal Ranges Of Motion (ROMs). We will learn how to measure ROMs of the lower body as well as correct abnormal findings using yoga. Additional attention will be given to assessing static muscle length & posture analysis. Classical sequences of ROM pathology from initial creation of mild fibrosis or ligament laxity through advanced joint degeneration will be presented. Multiple techniques for ROM assessment will be introduced with emphasis placed on performing manual measurements to reveal hidden aspects which impact movement. Corrective actions to help clients improve consciousness of their bodies emphasize active and passive stretches done on individual joints as well as doing functional activities by isolating movement with breath and focused concentration. Nutritional corrective activities will be introduced. This course includes a practical and written exam and online drill modules. Graduates will be able to apply ROM assessments and corrective action in their yoga classes upon completion. This course is part 1 of a 2-part series in ROM assessments.
