A medical emergency can happen on the mat and off the mat. Is your staff trained to know what to do? Yoga injuries are on the rise. Because yoga has become more mainstream you are getting all kinds of bodies in your yoga room. Someone could be walking into your studio with a preexisting condition.
I give training on emergency planning and certification in First Aid, CPR, and AED.
Education about your body is your first defense. I speak on the health-related subject such as these:
Stress and Anxiety
Yoga and Addiction Recovery
Why does your mental health affect your physical health?
Yoga therapy is the professional application of the principles and practices of yoga to promote health and well-being within a therapeutic relationship that includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle management, and yoga practices for individuals or small groups.
Yoga therapy can promote general emotional balance and assist with mood regulation. Research into effects on specific concerns is promising, and yoga has been used as an adjunctive therapy for anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, insomnia, and other conditions.
Yoga therapy can improve physical fitness and increase strength, balance, and flexibility. It can also help with physical health conditions such as pain, blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis.
