This module concludes the program by awarding Level III Certification. Yoga as Lifestyle Medicine III provides the remaining tools in the Lifestyle Medicine toolbox in order to use Functional & Integrative Medicine principles to fully address holistic care, all through the lens of Yoga.
The toolbox includes Ayurvedic philosophy and application, sound, music, and the voice in therapeutic application, Orofacial Assessment & Intervention (this lab teaches both external and internal evaluative techniques), Sacroiliac Joint Assessment and Intervention, and an in depth study of safe use of Inversions and Semi-Inversions in clinical application. These include nonaxial loading headstand, noncervical loading shoulderstand, and all semi-inversions outlined in Medical Therapeutic Yoga.
Through multiple interactive labs and case studies, the clinicians will come way with an evidence-based systematic method for teaching safe inversions, as well as a more complete understanding of how ancient yoga philosophy is relevant in today’s medical model.
Clinicians will have multiple opportunities to demonstrate understanding of how to affect population health through behavioral science, psychology, and the intersection between psychotherapy and rehabilitation. This module will prepare the clinician to being using Lifestyle Medicine in her/his practice, including how to impact stress management, pain, environmental and vocational health, sleep, nutrition, movement, mindfulness, and psycho-emotional-spiritual wellbeing. Functional and Integrative Medicine play integral roles in impacting public health and health promotion in practice, and this module will equip the clinician to affect social determinants of health as well as be more effective in patient care and program management. Finally, the Ayurvedic component will teach the clinician how to incorporate use of the doshic, gunas, and attribute analyses into the broader conceptual model in order to complete the entire holistic evaluation and management paradigm.
