Using yoga as a targeted intervention to optimize benefits to specific clinical populations requires the modification of the practice to address the specific needs of each population.  The collaboration between the University of Miami and Green Monkey Yoga has resulted in modified programs that have addressed multiple populations including, patients with Parkinson’s disease, older fallers, postmenopausal and women with metabolic syndrome.  Additionally, they are exploring previously unaddressed topic such as the impact of specific breathing methods on musculoskeletal strength, specialized yoga mediation and proprioception and caloric output and muscle utilization patterns during varying yoga practices.  Dr. Sig and Kiersten look forward to sharing their unique process of melding practical expertise and the scientific method to produce effective programs proven in their published studies. This lecture is open to all.
