So far your intuition has been your guiding force.
You know what you are doing works, but you aren't sure why. You feel that if you just knew more anatomy and how it applies to pain recovery and healing, you would get even better results.
You want to build your foundational understanding of anatomy, biomechanics and kinesiology so you can better serve your clients.
While you are still at the beginning stages of your anatomy journey, you know what you want out of an anatomy and movement course. You want a course that:
"To analyze movement takes a combination of formal training in anatomical and biomechanical knowledge, and a solid sense of intuition. While the former is attained though time and diligent practice, the latter is more difficult to master. It requires the practitioner to combine reason with instinct and curiosity. Susi has proved to be an expert at this skill, which makes collaborations with her very rewarding. I can trust her to help my clients find new ways to explore their senses and gain a new connection between the brain, body and spirit. Truly a gifted practitioner and a wonderful person."
- Dave Holmes, Physiotherapist (BScPT), Certified Spinal Manipulation, CAFCI (Acupuncture)
Example: So often yoga therapists with a beginning understanding of anatomy will look at someone with knee pain and say, "I need to strengthen the vastus medialis" (one of the quadriceps muscles important for knee function).
They begin exercises for this specific muscle, but don't see improvement, or the improvements are only short term. This is because they are focusing only one muscle and are not seeing the whole picture - the whole limb, or the relationship to the pelvis, spine, rib cage or shoulder girdle.
When the yoga therapist combines principles of kinesiology with the anatomical knowledge, they will have a much clearer understanding of what's contributing to the vastus medialis not working as it should. Their clarity on how the body functions will enable them to choose better movements for their students and have better results.
Susi Hately, B.Sc. Kinesiology has helped people get out of pain since 1995 and has been training yoga teachers and health professionals how to integrate yoga therapeutically into their practices since 2001.
Now she wants to help you grow your skill and ability to help others get out of pain.
I have a BSC. Kinesiology and have been helping people reduce and eradicate pain for 25 years. I have also been a bridge between the medical world and yoga. Two of my programs have been studied at the University of Calgary and both showed benefit for supporting people and their wellbeing. I am also the best selling author of 10 books and yoga video series, including Anatomy and Asana: Preventing Yoga Injuries.
I have been training teachers and health professionals in yoga therapy since 2001 and am the director and lead teacher of the highly successful C-IAYT Accredited Functional Synergy Yoga Therapy Program.
You can count on my expertise and experience. In addition to my IAYT program, I have appeared as a guest expert at Trent University, on Global TV, CTV, and in the Globe and Mail, Thrive Online, Chatelaine, Bride Magazine, Parenting, and Yoga Journal.
As a young student of yoga, I began to combine the ancient practices of yoga with my BSc. Kinesiology at a Vancouver pain clinic. When I continued to encounter individuals, including yoga instructors, who accepted that their pain was “normal”, I began to explore how yoga was being taught and practiced. By designing therapy programs that utilized sound anatomical principles of kinesiology with the time-honoured practices of gentle yoga, I have enabled people to find pain relief, feel good, and rediscover vitality in their lives.
"Susi is an exceptional coach. If you want to work with one of the best, if you want to work with someone who really wants you to succeed, if you want to work with someone who truly walks the walk and talks the talk, work with Susi. She really knows what she is doing".
"Susi has just the right amount of evidence and science with woo woo intuition. I love her style, her approach, and how she her great results - both for her clients and her trainees.
"I chose to work with Susi because she is approachable, direct and clear in her teaching. As a teacher she is supportive while still pushing me in the direction I want to go in. She also practices what she preaches - which comes through in her teaching.
