7/6 Concurrent Session 3-C 13:15-14:45 Yoga Therapy Assessment: Postural Assessment Penny Roberts British Council for Yoga Therapy
[3-D] Yoga Therapy Assessment: Postural Assessment The skill of an effective yoga therapist to assess a client efficiently at the initial Yoga Therapy session is vital to making the client feel at ease and drawing out the information necessary to determine where the client is in their body, breath and mind. This session will look at the ways in which we can glean information from postural assessment, body reading, movement and breathing assessment, as well as how the client interprets and comprehends instructions. The information gained allows the therapist to support the client from where they are and to illuminate the areas that are the priority for short and long-term goals. An experiential session with plenty of practical work.
