THE YOGA MOVEMENT SCREEN IS AN IN DEPTH OBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT TOOL THAT CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY BOTH FUNCTIONAL AND DYSFUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT PATTERNS IN AN INDIVIDUAL. THE SCREEN IS BASED ON AN IN DEPTH VIEW OF FUNCTIONAL ANATOMY AS IT RELATES TO YOGA. THE YMS USES 9 FOUNDATIONAL POSES TO OBJECTIVELY ADDRESS MOVEMENT PATTERNS IN AN INDIVIDUAL. THE YMS STARTS A PARTICIPANT ON A SERIES OF ASANAS TO ADDRESS THEIR MOVEMENT PATTERNS, MUSCULAR IMBALANCES, RESTRICTIONS, CORE AND BALANCE ISSUES. THE YOGA MOVEMENT SCREEN IS OFFERED IN DENVER, AT WHOLE YOGA DENVER (CLICK HERE) AND OUR BOULDER OFFICE.

 “For anyone thinking about taking this training, it was fantastic! The Yoga Movement Screen offers something for any type of instructor.  If you are interested in offering/already offer privates, it is essential! This will help you clearly tailor student movement in a way that can show visible results and allow your clients to find greater mobility in their practice.  It is great for people at any ability level…elderly to athlete.  Additionally, you will enjoy learning a variety of therapeutic and restorative asanas, inner core exercises, and deep relaxation techniques. Vajra and Satya provide a wealth of knowledge and experience.  The course was great!”

Our goal is to offer high quality physical therapy and one on one yoga sessions.

Treating and observing people over 24 years, I am firmly convinced we were born for movement. Static positions such as prolonged computer use, or a repetitive dynamic action such as hours of cycling, running can contribute to overuse, poor movement patterns, which may create movement dysfunction and subsequently pain.

n our education our focus is on “fixing the pain” and as a result we often focus on the joint or joints that are painful. As careers evolve we often begin to see things in a new light, and practitioners with expertise tell us “dont treat the pain.” My physical therapy career has spanned a variety of experiences. My first physical therapy job was in Missoula, MT, where I worked in a local outpatient orthopedic clinic treating ranchers, loggers, firefighters, college athletes and folks of all ages. I moved back to Colorado and was employed as the medical director for a new physical therapy clinic specializing in workers compensation. People can hurt themselves in all kinds of ways! I saw and treated a lot of unique injuries!
