Conducting a Comprehensive Evaluation in a Therapeutic Setting 

1 2 3 4 5


This class will teach you how to conduct an intake evaluation for students you work with one-on-one in a therapeutic setting. This online course is short and to the point with everything you need to get started. We believe this is the foundation for teaching more therapeutically oriented yoga in a one-on-one setting and essential if you want to do research. We recommend you complete this before or soon after you begin the 500/1000hr training if possible in order to complete your case studies as you go.

Note: The Conducting an Evaluation in a Therapeutic Setting course is complimentary to students and teachers once they register for a 500/1000hr training with Yoga Medicine. This course is recommended to complete prior to attending a 500/1000hr training. This is to ensure that each participant will have a working familiarity of the evaluations protocol, therefore, there will be more time to cover case studies and discussions during the trainings.
