Yoga and Rehab 102 – Pranayama and Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Course Description

Course Description: Yoga has been commonly used for various health related conditions and Pranayama is typically practiced with Yoga and has if not more, but equal benefits. Pranayama is regarded as a science and is one of the main components of yoga forming the fourth limb in Ashtanga Yoga. Pranayama or yogic breathing has demonstrated numerous beneficial health effects. In a wider sense Pranayama strengthens the body and mind connection, but it has also proven to support multiple aspects of physical health, including lung function, vital capacity, resting respiratory rate, blood pressure and brain function. I am a Physical Therapist and a Certified Yoga instructor, and I wanted to introduce Pranayama or Yogic Breathing and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. In this CE we can focus on how we can implement different types of Pranayama with various respiratory conditions and explore their numerous therapeutic benefits.
