What does Medical-Grade Yoga Mean?

Choice: aligned with physical therapy joint and soft tissue research. Each yoga exercise is “cherry-picked” from a variety of yoga styles for optimal soft tissue results and joint safety (Swatantra, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Restorative, Kripalu, Anusara, Bikram, & Ana Forrest Styles of Yoga).

Sequences: oriented to specific research-based strategies to improve soft tissue range of motion prior to strengthening in order to unite joint alignment with joint stability, diminishing joint and soft tissue deterioration. This reduces pain related to aging and injury processes.

Modifications: always staying within the normal range of the joint and beneficial weight loads while accommodating genetic or surgical joint and soft tissue restrictions.

Produced: administered by a licensed medical professional with a formal university education on the complexities of the human body’s anatomy, physiology, psychology, biomechanics, disease, and injury processes.
