I have teamed up with Helen O’Neill & Emily Tomlinson (both PT’s and Yoga Teachers) to form Physiyoga Global, offering an advanced teacher training certification program in Physiyoga this fall in NYC.

Yoga instructors, take your teaching to the next level with advanced training in anatomy, physiology and biomechanics!
The field of using yoga therapeutically is rapidly expanding as students and others desire injury rehabilitation through less conventional methods. Yoga teachers are often the first people a student turns to when they have pain. The therapeutic application of yoga and its teachings are inherently deeply applicable to treating an injury.
Physiyoga is the merging of physiotherapy principles with yoga. It is the practical application of applied anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and kinesiology into a yoga practice. As physiotherapists and yoga teachers we have found that patients and clients get relief from pain and return to what they love faster through this integrative practice. Combining breath, mindfulness and asana with western therapeutic methods creates an approach that is wholistic and thorough.
A few topics to be covered include:
- Assessment of faulty movement in relation to pain using yoga
- Planning 1:1 sessions to release, retrain, and optimize movement when injury is present
- Improving safety in classes through specific cues, modifications and hands-on adjustments
- Getting people to move better and more smartly
- A review of common orthopedic pathologies, their causes, how to modify including
- Musculoskeletal anatomy as it pertains specifically to asana practice including joint mechanics and special considerations
