11/12 Common Pathologies of Human Systems (Zoom)

November 12 @ 12:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Course Overview

Led by Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Tess O’Hern, this 2-Day intensive will focus on adapting yogic practices to meet the needs of students in the second half of life, those over 50. As we age things change, physically, intellectually, spiritually and emotionally, and as we change so does our yoga practice.

This section explores the functions of each physiological system in the body and provides a review of general terminology associated with disease and injury. The focus is how disease can be de ned as an impairment of health that interferes with the body’s ability to function normally; as appropriate to Level 1 coursework. This class lays the foundation for Levels 2/3 Pathophysiology study of how disease and trauma alter the normal functioning of the body. In this section, trainees will learn general assessment principles using the panchamaya model, adaptations for common pathologies and applications of asana, pranayama and dhyanam using a 12 step class formula based off Larry Payne’s work in the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya, as well as delivery methodology for clients.
