Course Description

This 30-minute online course is the foundation for teaching therapeutic applications of yoga in a one-on-one setting and is essential if you want to effectively support students on an individual level.

Whether you desire to work with pain and injuries or want to help students from your group classes quickly reach their movement and/or asana goals, this mini training will show you how to conduct a well-thought-out intake evaluation that will not only clarify how to best serve your client, but become the launchpad for a successful and meaningful relationship.

Note for our 500 and 1000hr training students: We recommend completing this complementary course before or soon after you begin the 500 or 1000hr training in order to ensure that you have a working familiarity of the evaluations protocol for case study discussions.

    I’ve always struggled giving “advice” to my students who have pain – not wanting to take the role of a medical provider but still having the desire to help. This course gave me the tools and mindset I needed to approach these situations with practicality and set realistic expectations with students as we navigate through their pain points together. The pain scale Tiffany teaches is such a simple, yet potent check-in modality that helps my students see their progressions over time. Great course, just signed up for one of the full length Teacher Trainings and I can’t WAIT to dive in!!

    I use this framework every single time I start with a new 1-on-1 client and periodically too as a method to “check in” to see if there are any other areas of focus we can work on. Tiffany provides a succinct, actionable checklist to guide your conversations with students – super easy to follow along with!!! I highly recommend Yoga Medicine if you want to raise your skill level and really make an impact as a Yoga teacher.
