Yin Yoga for Rehab Professionals - Empowering Patient Mobility

Feb 12, 2023 - 19:00 (EST)
60 minutes


When treating persistent pain, the following two statements should be embedded into every treatment plan:
1.  Building self-efficacy and resilience are key considerations for exercise prescription.
2.  Active treatment strategies trump passive strategies when treating persistent pain.
Cupping, skin rolling, and other passive modalities have become common strategies for addressing connective tissue mobility and hypersensitivity.  But... Do they build self-efficacy and resilience?
Yin yoga checks the box on both of these statements. Yin yoga is a simple practice that addresses connective tissue tension and creates mobility in the hips, pelvis and low back.  It empowers patients to change their connective tissue through simple, effective postures.
It also promotes mental stillness to help build resilience and calmness in our nervous system.
Learn more about the power of yin yoga as an exercise prescription for your clients with lumbopelvic pain.


In this webinar you will:
  1. Understand the difference between yin yoga and other yoga practices
  2. Understand who will benefit from a yin yoga prescription
  3. Learn which simple yin postures can effectively open up the hips and lumbar spine
  4. Understand the connection between visceral pain conditions (IBS, Bladder Pain Syndrome, Painful periods) and connective tissue sensitivity in your pelvic health and low back pain clients.
Join Amber and Carolyn as they unpack the power of yin yoga in this one-hour webinar!
