What the Fitness Pros Say about Yoga for Medical Exercise

From this course I gained a better understanding and working knowledge of common AMPs (altered movement patterns) and how to identify them in my clients and myself. I will share and apply some of the treatment protocols for AMPs into my present classes. I thought this course was practical, pertinent, and very well written, aimed to enhance the mind, body and spirit. I not only enjoyed it, but gained further knowledge in this subject that will be positively reflected in my work. Thank-you!

 I absolutely loved this course- especially the mind-body aspect of it. Many people fail to realize that the mental aspect of physical fitness is just as- if not more- important than the physical aspect! I can't wait to utilize certain poses with my older clients who suffer from ailments that come with age! I loved all of it.
