Yoga Teaching and Fitness

Yoga Teaching and Fitness

There was a homework question about the 7 safety assessments. They are completely common sense as we won’t be taking people’s blood pressure or measuring BMI body mass index.

If you look at your  Anatomy  & Physiology text page 355 12.5 there is the simple list for you which I have recopied below.  

 Observe the person’s weight, skin colour, mobility etc. Train your eye to observe people as they approach you. Do they sit down heavily? Do they grimace or wince in poses? Do you detect cigarette smoke smell? Is their face pale or red when they exert themselves?SS

Yoga Teaching and Fitness Factors to be considered include:

i) Lifestyle
ii) Blood pressure
iii) Resting heart rate
iv) Amount of body fat
v) Aerobic capacity
vi) Flexibility
vii) Muscle strength

You need to keep these in mind when you are learning, because if the others in your group are similar to you, you won’t think of how to construct the poses for people who are at the more extreme end of the above list.

Static poses and dynamic poses will bring different variables to this mix. Dynamic poses may require more strength, and cardio-vascular fitness. Inversions will affect blood pressure – so will raising the arms and standing up. Be aware of your group and ready to adapt your poses or change direction if need be.

Also look at point 12.4 in your READING A & P Set Text Simon Borg-Oliver

[ To buy go to:     http://anatomy.yogasynergy.com/book/friend/wanmer  ]   page 355, which has another list to keep in mind. This one relates more to injury, loss of muscle tone, loss of range of movement in joints. I have a client with MS at the moment and we check this out to see her functional movement before her monthly YPT sessions.

Looking forward to your comments. ?
