Our mission is to unite the knowledge of eastern and western medicine and to provide health care professionals with evidence based practices for their patients.
This retreat is designed as a continuing education course for physical therapists and assistants, occupational therapists and assistants, registered nurses, and nurse midwives interested in incorporating yoga and meditation practices in their work.
Meditation and Mindfulness
Current evidence-based research on yoga, meditation, and mindfulness for urinary incontinence, urgency, pelvic organ prolapse, constipation, IBS, osteoporosis, menopause, and pelvic pain will be presented in a retreat setting.
This interactive course will give clinicians the skills in yoga and mindfulness practice to return to the clinic and implement treatment and exercise prescriptions for specific pelvic health conditions.
Content will include detailed examples of yoga poses specific to clinical diagnosis with modifications and contraindications.
Yoga and meditation will be interwoven throughout the course to allow participants to experience the health benefits of both and gain skills for returning to the clinic.
