Additional Info:



Course Description:  We will explore the causes of normal and abnormal Ranges Of Motion (ROMs) (Anandamaya Kosha). We will learn how to measure ROMs as well as correct abnormal findings using yoga therapy techniques. Joints covered will include half of all major joints in every direction. 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 goniometric measurements to reveal hidden aspects which impact movement (Pranamaya & Manomaya Koshas). 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 (asana variations), with breath (pranayama), and focused concentration (dharana).  Nutritional corrective actions (mitahara) will be introduced. Formative assessments will be done via quizzes at the end of each of the first 4 days of instructions.  Instructions will also be provided via quizlet (an online tool for drilling and memorizing content).
