Physiotherapy associates from Lansing will be teaching a yoga course at a Michigan college next month.
The college in Lansing announced that it will offer the course, called ‘The Art of Physiotherapeutic Yoga’ on July 24, which is part of a series of online classes.
The program will also include a workshop and a performance.
The first of the six classes is scheduled to take place at the College of Science and Technology in the fall.
The others are scheduled for the fall and winter.
The class will cover topics such as exercise, relaxation, health, health care, health and wellbeing, pain, depression and stress, according to a news release from the college.
Physiotherapy associate Dr. Tasha Tipton, a member of the faculty of the college, said that she believes that yoga is an effective tool for people with various health problems.
She said that her own personal experience with yoga has been very positive, as she was able to achieve a better quality of life as well as a deeper understanding of her body and mind.
“Yoga can be a therapeutic and healing tool for all people, regardless of their health status,” Tiptons statement said.
“I have a tremendous sense of optimism and confidence in my ability to deliver a positive program to a diverse community of people.”
Lansing is one of more than 40 colleges across the United States offering yoga classes.
In October, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that yoga and meditation are not “medically necessary” for patients who suffer from multiple sclerosis.
