Yoga Applications across the Lifespan
Yoga has become increasingly popular in the western mainstream world these days, but its therapeutic applications are relatively unknown to most rehabilitation clinicians. This recording is specifically designed for therapists! You will expand your therapeutic repertoire and improve client functions through incorporating yoga in nearly any setting. This material is highly useful for both adult and pediatric clients, and it can be used to assist with pain management too. In fact, yoga therapy can be used with the clients therapists struggle most to help!
Yoga for Therapeutic Rehabilitation will tap into your knowledge of anatomy and physiology (not to mention a little psychology) in order to enhance treatment plans for clients with issues ranging from multiple sclerosis and cancer to cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, and many orthopedic and neurological disorders. You will discover innovative ways to use props and equipment to assist your clients' therapeutic outcomes. You will view group breakout sessions in which you will discover ways to maximize function using yoga postures for clients in a wide array of settings. By incorporating yoga into your therapeutic practice, you will begin to see health care in a whole new, expanded way. Do not miss this exciting opportunity to bring yoga as a treatment modality to your clients.
This recording is designed for people of all skill levels. You do not need to be experienced with yoga to be able to watch this recording or integrate its benefits with clients!

Yoga and Expanding Client Treatment
Betsy Shandalov, OTR /L, C-IAYT, AWC, has worked as a clinician, educator and supervisor in rehabilitation and community re-entry. She now treats adults and children in a variety of healthcare and educational settings, using Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness as her main therapeutic modalities. Her extensive knowledge of disease and disability in a variety of settings combines with her complementary Integrative medicine treatment to provide a new level of understanding of how the brain and the immune system work together for natural and therapeutic healing.She continues to lecture around the country to encourage and educate other healthcare professionals to learn more about Integrative Medicine and its benefits. Her hope is that if we can teach clients to empower themselves with diet modifications, movement and breath then they can change their lifestyle to prevent injury, heal an existing injury and help with pain management and trauma throughout the lifespan.
