    This course is an online course that combines live Zoom discussions and labs, pre-recorded lectures, and pre-recorded practices that will be the basis for experiencing and integrating restorative yoga into physical therapy practice.

    It is well known that stress is an important contributor to overall quality of life, chronic pain and disease risk. Our society’s focus on high productivity and achievement often creates chronic fatigue and reduced ability to regulate our nervous systems. Sleep maybe the only time a person actually rests during the day. For those who have survived trauma, even sleep is not restful. And so we stay in a state of stress that is difficult to manage.

    Restorative yoga is an accessible practice that can teach patients (and practitioners) how to rest systematically, for short periods of time, on a regular basis to encourage parasympathetic nervous system to balance with the sympathetic nervous system for improved neuroregulation. We will also talk about the difference between meditation and restorative yoga, and how they can support each other in order to support the ability to drop into relaxation.

    Designed for the virtual class room, the lectures are pre-recorded for viewing at convenience. A set of restorative postures, each taking 20-30 minutes are offered prior to the live meetings so that participants can experience what a patient might experience when restorative yoga is a component of their home program. We will then discuss participant experiences, questions and strategize how to reduce barriers to relaxation so that patients can integrate this practice into their life style. There will also be live labs for breathing techniques and specific meditations that may be helpful to patients working with an unregulated nervous system.

     

    Prerequisites:
    Pre- Recordings: Watch Before the Live Component of the Course

    There are approximately 3.25 hours of pre-recorded lectures & labs that are to be completed prior to the first day of live meetings.

    This course is an online course that combines live Zoom discussions and labs, pre-recorded lectures, and pre-recorded practices that will be the basis for experiencing and integrating restorative yoga into physical therapy practice.

    It is well known that stress is an important contributor to overall quality of life, chronic pain and disease risk. Our society’s focus on high productivity and achievement often creates chronic fatigue and reduced ability to regulate our nervous systems. Sleep maybe the only time a person actually rests during the day. For those who have survived trauma, even sleep is not restful. And so we stay in a state of stress that is difficult to manage.

    Restorative yoga is an accessible practice that can teach patients (and practitioners) how to rest systematically, for short periods of time, on a regular basis to encourage parasympathetic nervous system to balance with the sympathetic nervous system for improved neuroregulation. We will also talk about the difference between meditation and restorative yoga, and how they can support each other in order to support the ability to drop into relaxation.

    Designed for the virtual class room, the lectures are pre-recorded for viewing at convenience. A set of restorative postures, each taking 20-30 minutes are offered prior to the live meetings so that participants can experience what a patient might experience when restorative yoga is a component of their home program. We will then discuss participant experiences, questions and strategize how to reduce barriers to relaxation so that patients can integrate this practice into their life style. There will also be live labs for breathing techniques and specific meditations that may be helpful to patients working with an unregulated nervous system.

     

    Prerequisites:
    Pre- Recordings: Watch Before the Live Component of the Course

    There are approximately 3.25 hours of pre-recorded lectures & labs that are to be completed prior to the first day of live meetings.

    This course is an online course that combines live Zoom discussions and labs, pre-recorded lectures, and pre-recorded practices that will be the basis for experiencing and integrating restorative yoga into physical therapy practice.

    It is well known that stress is an important contributor to overall quality of life, chronic pain and disease risk. Our society’s focus on high productivity and achievement often creates chronic fatigue and reduced ability to regulate our nervous systems. Sleep maybe the only time a person actually rests during the day. For those who have survived trauma, even sleep is not restful. And so we stay in a state of stress that is difficult to manage.

    Restorative yoga is an accessible practice that can teach patients (and practitioners) how to rest systematically, for short periods of time, on a regular basis to encourage parasympathetic nervous system to balance with the sympathetic nervous system for improved neuroregulation. We will also talk about the difference between meditation and restorative yoga, and how they can support each other in order to support the ability to drop into relaxation.

    Designed for the virtual class room, the lectures are pre-recorded for viewing at convenience. A set of restorative postures, each taking 20-30 minutes are offered prior to the live meetings so that participants can experience what a patient might experience when restorative yoga is a component of their home program. We will then discuss participant experiences, questions and strategize how to reduce barriers to relaxation so that patients can integrate this practice into their life style. There will also be live labs for breathing techniques and specific meditations that may be helpful to patients working with an unregulated nervous system.

     

    Prerequisites:
    Pre- Recordings: Watch Before the Live Component of the Course

    Important thing to note:

    - Our policy for applying for continuing education credit for remote courses differs from that of our in-person and satellite lab courses. Read the specific language of the policy here. Depending on the state in which you practice, you may need to submit your own application to your state board or approving body should you wish that it be approved for continuing education credit in your state.

    - To attend a remote Herman & Wallace course, registrants will need Zoom video conferencing software. This is a requirement. One can create an account and download the software to their computer at https://zoom.us/

    - We use the Pacific Time Zone for all of our remote course start and end times (this is not the case for in-person and satellite lab locations). Please make a note of this and set your calendar accordingly.

    - A Zoom account is free to create. Before the meeting, we recommend having a practice Zoom session with a friend or colleague so you can test your microphone, video, and internet connection. You can participate in any remote course from the comfort of your home, but will need a stable internet connection in order to participate. We recommend downloading the software and practicing a call with a friend or colleague prior to your course with us. Zoom also offers video tutorials on their website at https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials.

    Despite decades of research Breathing Pattern Disorders, together with a range of the resulting pathophysiological biochemical, psychological and biomechanical effects, remain commonly under-recognized by health care professionals as contributing to pain, fatigue, and dysfunction in general and lumbopelvic pain and dysfunction”- Leon Chaitow


    This remote continuing education course is presented live on Zoom and is designed to expand the participant's knowledge of the diaphragm and breathing mechanics. Through multiple lectures and detailed labs, participants will learn how the diaphragm, breathing, and the abdominals can affect core and postural stability through intra-abdominal pressure changes.

    As an integrated approach, the course looks at structures from the glottis and the cervical region to the pelvic floor and helps in understanding a multi-component system that works together. Optimal function of the diaphragm and breathing patterns are key to a healthy pelvic floor, a normal functioning core, and postural stability. Evidence-based methods to assess the diaphragm and breathing mechanics are presented along with easy-to-apply practical intervention strategies.

    This course includes assessment and treatment of the barriers by addressing thoracic spine articulation and rib cage abnormalities in the fascial system of muscles related to breathing and the diaphragm. The assessment concepts and treatment techniques can easily be integrated into a therapist's current evaluation and intervention strategies.

    The course information is applicable to patients who present with Diastasis Rectus Abdominis, pelvic pain, incontinence, prolapse, cervical/thoracic/scapular/ and lumbar pain. In addition, current literature has shown that these breath and diaphragm training techniques can effectively improve athletic performance in Labs will be demonstrated and will be participatory where possible.

    Participants may practice labs on a family member or friend or team with a fellow participant where possible.

    Despite decades of research Breathing Pattern Disorders, together with a range of the resulting pathophysiological biochemical, psychological and biomechanical effects, remain commonly under-recognized by health care professionals as contributing to pain, fatigue, and dysfunction in general and lumbopelvic pain and dysfunction”- Leon Chaitow


    This remote continuing education course is presented live on Zoom and is designed to expand the participant's knowledge of the diaphragm and breathing mechanics. Through multiple lectures and detailed labs, participants will learn how the diaphragm, breathing, and the abdominals can affect core and postural stability through intra-abdominal pressure changes.

    As an integrated approach, the course looks at structures from the glottis and the cervical region to the pelvic floor and helps in understanding a multi-component system that works together. Optimal function of the diaphragm and breathing patterns are key to a healthy pelvic floor, a normal functioning core, and postural stability. Evidence-based methods to assess the diaphragm and breathing mechanics are presented along with easy-to-apply practical intervention strategies.

    This course includes assessment and treatment of the barriers by addressing thoracic spine articulation and rib cage abnormalities in the fascial system of muscles related to breathing and the diaphragm. The assessment concepts and treatment techniques can easily be integrated into a therapist's current evaluation and intervention strategies.

    The course information is applicable to patients who present with Diastasis Rectus Abdominis, pelvic pain, incontinence, prolapse, cervical/thoracic/scapular/ and lumbar pain. In addition, current literature has shown that these breath and diaphragm training techniques can effectively improve athletic performance in Labs will be demonstrated and will be participatory where possible.

    Participants may practice labs on a family member or friend or team with a fellow participant where possible.

    Despite decades of research Breathing Pattern Disorders, together with a range of the resulting pathophysiological biochemical, psychological and biomechanical effects, remain commonly under-recognized by health care professionals as contributing to pain, fatigue, and dysfunction in general and lumbopelvic pain and dysfunction”- Leon Chaitow


    This remote continuing education course is presented live on Zoom and is designed to expand the participant's knowledge of the diaphragm and breathing mechanics. Through multiple lectures and detailed labs, participants will learn how the diaphragm, breathing, and the abdominals can affect core and postural stability through intra-abdominal pressure changes.

    As an integrated approach, the course looks at structures from the glottis and the cervical region to the pelvic floor and helps in understanding a multi-component system that works together. Optimal function of the diaphragm and breathing patterns are key to a healthy pelvic floor, a normal functioning core, and postural stability. Evidence-based methods to assess the diaphragm and breathing mechanics are presented along with easy-to-apply practical intervention strategies.

    This course includes assessment and treatment of the barriers by addressing thoracic spine articulation and rib cage abnormalities in the fascial system of muscles related to breathing and the diaphragm. The assessment concepts and treatment techniques can easily be integrated into a therapist's current evaluation and intervention strategies.

    The course information is applicable to patients who present with Diastasis Rectus Abdominis, pelvic pain, incontinence, prolapse, cervical/thoracic/scapular/ and lumbar pain. In addition, current literature has shown that these breath and diaphragm training techniques can effectively improve athletic performance in Labs will be demonstrated and will be participatory where possible.

    Participants may practice labs on a family member or friend or team with a fellow participant where possible.

    Despite decades of research Breathing Pattern Disorders, together with a range of the resulting pathophysiological biochemical, psychological and biomechanical effects, remain commonly under-recognized by health care professionals as contributing to pain, fatigue and dysfunction in general and lumbopelvic pain and dysfunction”- Leon Chaitow


    This two-and-a-half day continuing education course is designed to expand the participants knowledge of the diaphragm and breathing mechanics and their relationship with the core inclusive of the pelvic floor. Through multiple lectures and detailed labs, participants will learn how the diaphragm and breathing can affect core and postural stability through intra-abdominal pressure changes. As an integrated approach, the course looks at structures from the cervical region to the pelvic floor and helps in understanding a multi component system that works together.

    Optimal function of the diaphragm and correct breathing patterns are key to a normal functioning core and postural stability. Evidence-based methods to assess the diaphragm and breath mechanics are presented along with easy to apply practical intervention strategies. This course includes assessment and treatment of barriers by addressing thoracic spine articulation and rib cage abnormalities, and the abnormalities in the fascial system of muscles related to breathing and the diaphragm. The assessment concepts and treatment techniques can be easily integrated into a therapist's current evaluation and intervention strategies. Sufficient lab time is built into the class to allow the participant to practice the material that is demonstrated.

    The course information is applicable to the patient who presents with cervical/ thoracic/ scapular/ and lumbar pain. Current literature has shown that these breath and diaphragm training techniques can effectively improve athletic performance in runners, throwers, swimmers, weight-lifters, and Cross Fit athletes by improving motor control patterns. In addition, this course also helps the orthopedic therapist gain some evaluation techniques of the pelvic floor and when to appropriately refer to a pelvic health clinician

    NOTE: There are two versions of this course. This edition is designed for therapists with no prior experience in intravaginal examination, and it does not include an extra lab at the end of day two. Therapists with intravaginal examination experience can attend the Breathing and the Diaphragm: Pelvic and Orthopedic Therapists version of the course, which has Pelvic Floor Level 1 as a prerequisite.

    Despite decades of research Breathing Pattern Disorders, together with a range of the resulting pathophysiological biochemical, psychological and biomechanical effects, remain commonly under-recognized by health care professionals as contributing to pain, fatigue and dysfunction in general and lumbopelvic pain and dysfunction”- Leon Chaitow


    This two-and-a-half day continuing education course is designed to expand the participants knowledge of the diaphragm and breathing mechanics and their relationship with the core inclusive of the pelvic floor. Through multiple lectures and detailed labs, participants will learn how the diaphragm and breathing can affect core and postural stability through intra-abdominal pressure changes. As an integrated approach, the course looks at structures from the cervical region to the pelvic floor and helps in understanding a multi component system that works together.

    Optimal function of the diaphragm and correct breathing patterns are key to a normal functioning core and postural stability. Evidence-based methods to assess the diaphragm and breath mechanics are presented along with easy to apply practical intervention strategies. This course includes assessment and treatment of barriers by addressing thoracic spine articulation and rib cage abnormalities, and the abnormalities in the fascial system of muscles related to breathing and the diaphragm. The assessment concepts and treatment techniques can be easily integrated into a therapist's current evaluation and intervention strategies. Sufficient lab time is built into the class to allow the participant to practice the material that is demonstrated.

    The course information is applicable to the patient who presents with cervical/ thoracic/ scapular/ and lumbar pain. Current literature has shown that these breath and diaphragm training techniques can effectively improve athletic performance in runners, throwers, swimmers, weight-lifters, and Cross Fit athletes by improving motor control patterns. In addition, this course also helps the orthopedic therapist gain some evaluation techniques of the pelvic floor and when to appropriately refer to a pelvic health clinician

    NOTE: There are two versions of this course. This edition is designed for therapists with no prior experience in intravaginal examination, and it does not include an extra lab at the end of day two. Therapists with intravaginal examination experience can attend the Breathing and the Diaphragm: Pelvic and Orthopedic Therapists version of the course, which has Pelvic Floor Level 1 as a prerequisite.

    This online continuing education course is designed for the pelvic rehab therapist and provides a thorough introduction to the physiology of the lactating breast, dysfunction and treatment interventions, and the physical therapist’s role in breastfeeding and pumping support.

    Participants will learn to assess and treat breast inflammation and pain such as mastitis, blocked ducts, milk blebs, and cracked nipples. This course will also cover when to refer to other health professionals so that the participant will be able to clearly communicate the role of physical therapy during lactation.

    Evidence-based assessment and treatment techniques will be emphasized. Lecture topics will include the anatomy and physiology of lactation, blocked ducts and mastitis, and breast pain through a biopsychosocial lens. During labs, participants will have the opportunity to systematically assess the breast and practice therapeutic breast massage and manual milk expression.

    Lectures will be delivered with a combination of asynchronous and live formats. Participants will receive several hours of recordings prior to the course start date and will be expected to complete the asynchronous lectures independently.

    Special Considerations:
    This course includes non-internal lab work on breast tissue. Participants may practice manual techniques on themselves or on another individual in their locale. It is the responsibility of each course participant to protect the safety of lab partners if they are recruited, including the use of infection control practices and obtaining informed consent. Pregnant and lactating individuals are welcome to register, as are those without breasts.

    PLEASE NOTE: This course includes breast assessment and exam techniques, and the discussion of topics that may be linked to a participant’s personal experiences. Topics include systemic discrimination, medical trauma, breast cancer, and others. H&W strives to foster an environment that is safe and supportive. Survivors of past trauma should be aware that performing or experiencing a breast exam or discussing certain topics may be triggering, and that many, regardless of their histories, feel strong emotions in relation to some course content. In order to foster an environment that is non-triggering and safe for all participants, we recommend all participants consider the emotional impact they may experience during the course and consider consulting a trauma counselor or therapist prior to attending.

    Audience:
    This continuing education course is targeted to the pelvic health physical therapist. Non-pelvic physical therapists are welcome to register bearing in mind that some concepts may require additional reading and preparation.

    Prerequisites:
    All pre-recorded lectures in Teachable for this course must be watched before the Live Component of the course. See the Schedule tab for the current list of pre-recorded videos

    Upon completion of this continuing education course, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe the physical therapist’s role in breastfeeding support
    2. Discuss the physiology and anatomy of the lactating breast
    3. Demonstrate clinical reasoning skills for the assessment of breast inflammation and nipple pain
    4. Demonstrate a physical therapy evaluation of the lactating breast
    5. Review clinical guidelines for mastitis and breast pain
    6. Establish an evidence-based, individualized treatment plan for breast conditions

    Mercedes is a women’s health physical therapist and the founder of Vida Health & Wellness in Calgary, Canada. She received a Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Calgary, a Master of Physical Therapy from the University of Western Ontario, a post-graduate certificate in pain management from the University of Alberta, and a Master of Health Management from McMaster University.

    Mercedes has unique experience in physical therapy for breastfeeding support and is an international board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). She helps families to meet their feeding goals through the lens of a physical therapist, using principles from the areas of musculoskeletal, neurological, and chronic pain.

    Evidence-based healthcare is important to Mercedes and in addition to her clinical role, she conducts research to better inform her practice. Her current work examines the precursors to lactation mastitis and the role of the nervous system in breast pain.

    Mercedes started sharing her passion for breastfeeding support in physical therapy at the annual Pelvic Health Solutions symposium. She has taught webinars, in-person courses, and physical therapy students on the topic.

    Outside of the clinic, Mercedes enjoys spending time with her family. She is an avid knitter, weightlifter, dancer, and swimmer.
