Human resources is an organization’s most valuable asset, and it is in the best interest of the employer, the employee, and society as a whole that our workforce stays healthy. 

Occupational health refers to identifying and controlling the risks from physical, chemical, and other workplace hazards in order to establish and maintain a safe and healthy working environment. 

In this weekend's immersive training we will review occupational risks and how yoga can help in the assessment of risk. We will also learn how yoga can integrate with a medical facility's occupational/physical therapy for better patient outcomes. We will learn to identify the types of disabilities that can occur on the job, and how, we as yoga therapists, can treat them when they occur. And, we will review how mindfulness can assist in worklife and how technology can assist. You will learn valuable Yoga techniques for stress relief at work and for any yoga therapy clients, as well as gain tools to market Yoga Therapy to corporations for Occupational Health at the workplace.
