Yoga and Physiotherapy Are a Natural Fit
Physiotherapists are the recognized experts in muscle and skeletal function, dysfunction and rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, a key component of physiotherapy is exercise therapy – the targeted use of muscle strengthening and stretching exercises to improve muscle function and balance, postural alignment, and optimal movement patterns. In doing so, exercise therapy can be used to reduce mobility and balance dysfunctions, pain, inflammation, and prevent re-injury or manage chronic physical conditions.
Yoga has at its core a similar focus as physiotherapy: improving muscle strength and balance, postural alignment, and optimal movement to promote fitness and health. Physiotherapists with Instructor Certification are therefore uniquely equipped to understand and deliver training that can help their clients achieve their fitness goals as well as their physical rehabilitation objectives.
