My first project after finishing my sabbatical is actually one I worked on during my sabbatical with the brilliant Hannah Millson, SPT of U of Montana Doctoral Physical Therapy program during the fall semester of 2016. Hannah contacted me the spring of 2016 as I was leaving on sabbatical and wanted to do an independent study project around yoga and rehab. From that request developed the idea of creating a 15-week online course for rehab graduate students that will:
- Be evidence-informed on using yoga therapeutics in rehab.
- Be experiential where they could experience the effects of practice on themselves…and hopefully also be a self-care tool.
- Provide the clinical rationale and basic science evidence to go back to the internship or classroom to share their insights with faculty, colleagues and patients.
- Provide students, faculty and clinical instructors the same material to share, adapt or modify for free as a Creative Commons licensed program (ie, you just have to attribute to us)…perfect for inservices, student groups, and capstone projects!
This course is now open as of August 15, 2017. It is free to all graduate students and student groups (Use coupon code “givingbackiytir“… see picture below…no credit card request; it looks like you will have to after you hit “Register,” but once you enter the coupon code it goes away, and NO upsells…promise). Graduates, faculty, clinical instructors, and active rehab professionals will be able to participate for free if they request a code from info at smartsafeyoga.com. While the course includes 15 weeks of material, you can complete at your own pace, faster or slower, you decide.
