Physiotherapy & Yoga; Taking It Off the Mat. A Short You-tube Chat

I am often asked why I practice yoga, and why I bring it into my Physical Therapy practice.  As a PT, I work with my patients and clients to restore, maintain, and promote not only the best physical function possible,  but optimal wellness and fitness and optimal quality of life as it relates to movement and health, physical, mental, and emotional. 

As a Medical Therapeutic Yoga Therapist (or PhysioYoga Therapist), I use yoga to address the physical, intellectual, energetic aspects of the individual. Yoga provides us with tools to move past repetitions and body parts, and instead to work with the entire person in an integrative fashin. The asana, or poses, in yoga, also can give us creative ways to address function, pain, balance, strength, and mobility, and to "TAKE IT OOF THE MAT" and into our daily lives. Isn't that what it's all about; the tools to live our life in a different, easier, or more optimal way?

I had the opportunity to have a chat and share some thoughts about function, care, and self-care with another Yoga-Physiotherapist, Alison McLean of Ignite Wellness (LaJolla California).  Listen to it here

And if you would like to learn ways to improve your function off the mat and in the real world, give us a call. We are here to help you find solutions.
