Yoga Safety For Healthcare Professionals
The most frequent questions Dr. Taylor addresses with healthcare professionals are:
- If I don’t have a yoga training certificate, can I still say I teach yoga/yoga therapy?
- What are legal concerns of teaching yoga when I hold a license as a healthcare professional?
- What are the medical contraindications for the many yoga technologies so I can keep my patients safe?
- How do I find a safe local yoga therapy professional?
When Dr. Taylor first started in asking these questions in 1996, with only the just starting dial-up Internet, healthcare professionals were on their own dealing with these unknowns. Today there remain many “gray” areas, but there are now ways to weigh other’s experience and expertise to inform your answers. Our publications will address these and the questions you submit. Chances are if Dr. Taylor doesn’t know the answer, he’s one call away from finding the person or resource you need.
