Upstate AHEC Will Offer Repeat Clinical Applications of Therapeutic Yoga Course

Clinical Applications of Therapeutic Yoga, taught by Trudy Messer PT, OCS, RYT, CKTP, CFMT, on April 15 received rave reviews. Due to its popularity, this course will be offered again on Friday, October 21 in the Training Room at Upstate AHEC.

The four-hour introductory course was designed to assist clinicians in understanding what therapeutic yoga is and how it relates to the treatment of patients.  An evidenced-based approach to therapeutic yoga was presented, as well as how to initiate appropriate effective treatment focused on therapeutic exercise and breathing techniques.  This course included a combination of didactic and practical learning sessions.

“Trudy was an EXCELLENT Instructor,” commented one participant, “I have been going to yoga classes on and off for years and Trudy not only explained the appropriate techniques (that I did not know), but she tied it into the muscle imbalances and had practical applications for patients with different problems.  And she demonstrated modifications for each pose in addition to the benefits of each pose.  Her class was evidenced-based as well.  I plan on attending one of her yoga classes.  I would love to take more courses from Trudy.  Thank you!”

If you would like more information about the course or have questions, please contact Bennie Pettit at bpettit@upstateahec.org or 864-349-1162.
