Yoga for Arthritis was developed by yoga researcher and arthritis expert Steffany Moonaz, PhD, along with an interdisciplinary team, including rheumatologists, psychologists, public health researchers and yoga therapists. Combining ancient yoga practices with modern medical knowledge, this program offers modifications to address the unique abilities and limitations of persons with arthritis. In a 7-year randomized clinical trial at Johns Hopkins University, the program’s participation was associated with improved arthritis symptoms, physical fitness, psychological functioning and quality of life. Such evidence is vital for bridging the integrative yoga world with medical healthcare, making these practices more accessible to those who really need them.
This training program trains yoga teachers to safely and effectively impart rigorously researched yoga practices, with individually-tailored modifications, to those with arthritis and related conditions.
This training is a part of the Yoga Center of Columbia 300 YTT, however this training is open to the public.
This training will be offered in two parts. The first part will occur in person for 15 contact hours at the Yoga Center of Columbia on November 8-10 2019. This is part of a 3-hour yoga teacher training, but can also be taken on its own for CEU credits with Yoga Alliance or International Association of Yoga Therapists.
Those wishing to complete the full Level I training through Yoga for Arthritis will be able to take the remaining hours online. This will be a separate registration from the live hours. Information will be provided about registration for the online portion to those who enroll for the 15 hour training above.
