Make the most of your precious time on the mat! In our time-starved lifestyle, the moments we spend in yoga practice must have the most beneficial effect possible. This essential course is designed for any level of yoga practitioner—from aspiring to experienced yogis—to learn to approach any class or practice with greater integrity, so you can gain the maximal therapeutic effect possible, no matter when, where, or how you practice. 

The founder of Yoga Medicine, internationally acclaimed teacher Tiffany Cruikshank, L.Ac., MAOM, E-RYT, has designed this course to make the groundbreaking techniques of Yoga Medicine accessible to everyone. Yoga Medicine teachers are rigorously educated in a fusion of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics with the traditional practice of yoga. Yoga Medicine extensively trains teachers to work with students and healthcare providers to find a yoga practice that is an appropriate therapeutic adjunct to medical care.

After teaching for over two decades, training thousands of yoga teachers, presenting at conferences around the world, and working with tens of thousands of patients, Tiffany has distilled the Yoga Medicine training down to the most important factors that help everyone get the most out of their yoga practice. Sharing many of these findings for the first time, Tiffany’s course is an essential supplement for anyone who practices yoga and wants to enhance the therapeutic effects of their practice. 

In Yoga Medicine’s teacher trainings, we pride ourselves on teaching our students the what, why, and how of the poses, so teachers can empower their students to take their practice and health into their own hands. In this course, you’ll access this teacher training directly, learning Yoga Medicine’s key insights on anatomy, physiology, and mental health that you will be able to immediately put into use. You will learn how to develop your practice with a three-dimensional approach to address the physical body, the internal organs, and the mind simultaneously, in harmony with your body’s physiological reflexes and instincts.

This course features five sections with 28 unique lessons. In each lesson, you will learn critical information, alignment tips, and pose modifications that help you elevate your practice in whatever time you have. By the end of this course, you will be able to confidently approach any style of yoga with greater integrity, knowing you have the skills and knowledge to get the most out of every moment on the mat.

Each lesson will begin with a structured lecture by Tiffany, during which she will review the key points of learning and how the training will build upon itself with each section. During her lectures, Tiffany will refer to medical illustrations and notes that are provided in your handouts, to help you make connections and deepen your understanding. After each lecture, you’ll begin a thematically-linked yoga sequence, guided by Yoga Medicine’s most accomplished teachers, to help you make the embodied connection between the ideas and the practice so you can feel the core concepts of that lesson at work in your body. 

The course flows as follows:

Section 1: Introduction

  • Introduction (1:59)
  • Overview (6:10)
  • Key Preliminary Points (7:01)
  • Handout for this course (Yoga-Medicine_Udemy-Handout.pdf)

  • Asana Practice for Mindfulness (52:17)

Section 5: Conclusion

  • Bringing it All Together (4:59)
  • Establishing a Regular Practice (3:47)

Rather than simply provide a set of classes for you to repeat (and become dependent upon!), this course teaches you the key biomechanical concepts needed to approach any type of practice with the maximum physiological, mental, and emotional benefit. You’ll learn about the interaction of the nervous system with the poses, and how mindfulness meditation and specific methods of breathing can help you further tap into your body’s innate rest-and-recovery response. By the end of the course, you will have learned to move your body in more specifically healing ways, in all settings, so you can experience greater integrity and therapeutic effect from any yoga practice. These individual lessons and practices will be here for your review at any time, but the intention is for this education and these core concepts to travel with you, enabling you to tap into them at will.

Pain and stress are reaching epidemic levels, affecting so many aspects of our health and well-being. The ability of yoga to combat the ravages of daily life has become essential in today’s world. But with more and more scientific research validating yoga’s therapeutic and medical applications, the more intensive healing power of yoga has become undeniable, making an individual yoga practice an indispensable tool in any complete holistic health and wellness approach. These lectures and practices help you tap directly into that therapeutic effect, pairing cutting-edge scientific findings with hands-on instruction that helps you get the most targeted positive impact possible from your yoga practice. 

(Note: This course is not a replacement for medical advice nor is it a replacement for a yoga teacher who can give personalized guidance.)

Students: 925, Price:  Free

· This course deals with the composition, classification and function of human skeletal system in a very easily understandable manner.

  • The human skeletal system is the body system that provides the internal framework for the human body. In adults, the skeletal system contains 206 bones.

  • It is the combination of all the bones and tissues associated with cartilages and joints. Almost all the rigid or solid parts of the body are the main components of the skeletal system.

  • Bones are organs made up of dense connective tissues, mainly the hard collagen protein. Bones also contain blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues. Bones are hard and rigid due to the deposits of calcium and other mineral salts in their living tissues. In addition to bones, the skeletal system includes cartilage and ligaments

  • The skeleton is traditionally divided into two main parts: the axial skeleton, which includes the skull, the vertebral column and the rib cage; and the appendicular skeleton, which includes the appendages and belts that attach them to the axial skeleton.

  • The skeletal system has many different functions, including supporting the body and shaping it, protecting internal organs, providing attachment surfaces for skeletal muscles, enabling body movement, producing blood cells, storing minerals, helping to maintain mineral homeostasis and produce endocrine hormones.

  • This free online human anatomy course will be of great interest to all healthcare professionals who would like to learn more about the human skeletal system and its biological functions, as it gives a very nice audio-visual information to the audience.

Sleep is a mysterious state of mind and body that we spend an awful lot of time in - a third of our lives. Just imagine, for an average person who has lived 75 years, he will have spent 25 years of his life in sleep. Sleep is hard to define, but it’s easy to feel the importance of it - just skip a night and your body will show you how big of a mistake you have made. Yet, despite its vital importance few of us really know enough about what sleep really is, how it works, how it affects our physical and emotional state and most importantly how we can make our sleep more efficient and make the best use of it.

In this course we are going to learn the fundamental facts about sleep which is by the way and interestingly enough not something homogeneous, it consists of multiple and different phases, each of them being essential for our physical and emotional wellbeing. We will learn how our simple decisions during the day affect our sleep performance at night, and how in turn the quality of our sleep affects our daily life. And of course we are going to learn how to improve our sleep habits so that we can fully utilize its potential and enormous benefits for our mental and physical health.

Join me in exploring this mysterious yet so important gift that every single one of us has and let’s dive into it.

Students: 159, Price: $19.99

Students: 159, Price:  Paid

This is a course in the physiology of animals, or, to use a common phrase, how animals work.  Animals are, in one sense, machines, and the aim of the science of physiology is to understand how these machines function—what drives them, how they operate, the interaction of the various systems they comprise, and the physical and chemical constraints on how they work.    

Animals are also organisms, and this course is intended to help you understand how animals work as integrated units, i.e. as organisms. We will be concerned with how organisms’ various components work to keep an animal alive, with how these are coordinated, and how the various types of animals, despite their disparate evolutionary histories, solve common physiological problems, sometimes in remarkably innovative ways.     This course is intended for the upper-division biology student. It is also a good course for graduate students and practicing professionals looking for a brush-up course in animal physiology. I presume that you come into this course with the background in chemistry, physics, mathematics and biology that can be reasonably expected of a senior biology student. 

The course consists of about five hours of video clips, parceled into six lectures. This is the first module of four similar courses. This module covers respiration. Subsequent modules cover blood and circulation; digestion and metabolism; and heat and water balance. All four comprise one semester of a two-semester course in animal physiology.

"Prolonged sitting should be considered within occupational health and safety policies and practices just like other elements of posture.” ~ British Journal of Sports Medicine

Learn
how to avoid a potentially lethal disease by following simple steps.
The sitting disease, which is linked to long periods of sitting while
working, is becoming a health concern for many people. See how I
address this problem with two easy steps without affecting
productivity or using expensive equipment.

Inactivity
physiology is a relatively new branch of the science of physiology.
I believe any person who uses a computer for work or has to sit
at a desk for extended periods of time should have a basic
understanding of this new scientific field.

Start
implementing your own intervention to make sure you feel energized
and less stiff while working and ensure optimal health for the
future.


-
Sitting disease basics.

-
Surprisingly simple prevention principles.

-
Easy steps to apply interventions.

-
Possible obstacles.

Start
working in a way that does not endanger your health.

Learn
what all the hype around the “sitting disease” is about and find
out what you can do about it. If you have to sit while working for
more than two to three hours at a time (for example, working on a
computer), you may be at risk of developing some of the health
problems associated with the “sitting disease”. Problems such
as; an increasing waistline, type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease,
high blood pressure, cancer and depression have been linked to long
periods of sitting.

Applying
interventions against the “sitting disease” can help you to lower
your risk of developing these problems, as well as help you to feel
better while you work. Instead of feeling stiff and experiencing
back pain after working – you can feel revitalized and energized.

Content
and Overview

This
course is an introduction to the sitting disease and possible
interventions against the sitting disease. Learn what the sitting
disease is and how to approach successful interventions. Factors
that can have an impact on the success of these interventions are also discussed. The applications described in the course are
especially useful for any person who is required to sit for more
than two to three hours at a time while working, and who have not yet
applied successful interventions. For example, if you are a software
developer who works on a computer for extended periods at a time.

By
the end of the course you should be able to start planning your own
interventions with confidence. Although I cannot advise you about
any specific interventions you may want to do in your own working
situation, I can help with guidance and ideas.

This
course does NOT provide exercises (such resources are not difficult
to find), but instead the aim is to explain the principles behind
possible interventions and to help you to plan changes to how you
work.

Always
be safe and cautious when changing your physical activity and it is
recommended you consult with your health care provider. I do not
provide medical or therapeutic services – my aim is to raise
awareness about the sitting disease and to bring about change to
current mainstream workplace environments and approaches.

Although
the interventions suggested in the course may not be practical in all
working situations, the basic principles behind the interventions can
be creatively applied and adapted to various different working
environments.

By
changing a few simple things in your approach to your workspace, you
could easily change your work environment from a potentially harmful
environment, to one that is enjoyable and healthy!

Worryingly – Esports athletes exhibit greater body fat percentage, less lean body mass and less bone mineral content compared to age-matched controls. - This information presents nutritionists with lots of areas where they can help esports athletes, gamers and streamers  to improve their overall health and esports performance.

In this 5 part series I walk you through:

  1. The physiological characteristics of esports athletes and the physiological demands of being an esports athlete.

  2. The benefits of physical activity and exercise to esports performance and health.

  3. Fundamental nutrition principles, how diet and supplements can improve esports performance and health.

  4. Sleep and its importance for health, mental health and cognition.

  5. Hydration and dehydration's implications on cognition and subsequent esports performance.

It's a great starting point to question your own nutrition practices - I can't wait for you to watch it!

Animal physiology is, to use a common phrase, how animals work. 

Animals are, in one sense, machines, and the aim of the science of physiology is to understand how these machines function—what drives them, how they operate, the interaction of the various systems they comprise, and the physical and chemical constraints on how they work. 

Animals are also organisms, and this course is intended to help you understand how animals work as integrated units, i.e. as organisms. We will be concerned with how organisms’ various components work to keep an animal alive, with how these are coordinated, and how the various types of animals, despite their disparate evolutionary histories, solve common physiological problems, sometimes in remarkably innovative ways.

This course is the third in a series of courses that, together, would be the equivalent of a one-semester course in animal physiology. I strongly recommend that you take the first two courses in the series, Animal Physiology 1. Respiration and gas exchange, and Animal Physiology 2. Blood and circulation, before you take this course. The next course in the series is Animal Physiology 4. Temperature, water and metabolic rate

This course is intended for the upper-division biology student. It is also a good course for graduate students and practicing professionals looking for a brush-up course in animal physiology. I presume that you come into this course with the background in chemistry, physics, mathematics and biology that can be reasonably expected of a senior biology student.

The course consists of about six  hours of video clips, parceled into seven lectures.

In today stressful life, we encounter many challenges in life. Be it depression, sickness, performance issues, relationship issues, financial problems.

The normal tendency for most people is to tackle each problem separately. Depression issues, go see psychiatrists. Sickness issues go see doctors, performance issues, go see coaches, Relationship issues, go see counsellors. Financial problems, go see financial experts.

In this video course "A Single Window to Personality, Emotions and Physiology" presents the key contributing factors to the many problems and challenges we face are due to Personality, Emotions and our Physiology.

It runs on the premise that Life is a Holistic Entity, not fragmented into parts to be managed.

It runs on the premise that irrespective of how harsh and difficult the external situations maybe, the stability force is still within, in the area of Personality, Emotions and Physiology.

And Personality, Emotions and Physiology affect each other, and they are to be understood and managed as a whole. And in this video course, we present case studies to make illustration how the whole is managed.

And we will learn the theory and knowledge how these integrate together and how to do balancing.

And we can appreciate life more fully when we can see all things are inter-connected, and they form relationship with each other.

This is a detailed course about the human lymphatic system. This course covers  the basic concepts of physiology and anatomy pertaining to the lymphatic system and integrates these concepts with clinically relevant topics.   

This course comprises of four sections. The first section is about lymphatic fluid and its constituents. The second section deals with the lymphatic vessels. The Third and fourth sections are about the encapsulated and unencapsulated lymphoid tissue.

The first section describes the constituents and differences of lymphatic fluid from different areas of the body. The second section deals with how lymph is circulated through different types of lymphatic vessels starting at the tissue level and eventually reaching the big lymphatic vesels that drain into the blood circulation.

The third section is a detailed insight into the encapsulated lymphoid organs. The lymph node which is a part of the encapsulated organs is not covered here since it was previously alluded to in the previous section. The main foucs of this section is on the spleen and thymus.

The last section is about the lymphoid tissue that is freely dispersed without a capsule known as MALT. This section focuses on the importance of such tissue and pathologies pertaining to it.

This course is equivalent to a first semester of Human Anatomy & Physiology, more commonly referred to as A&P1.  In A&P1, we will explore and discuss the foundations of biochemistry, anatomical terminology, cell physiology, genetics, metabolic function and nutrition, histology, integumental physiology, musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology, and will end with a brief introduction to the nervous system.  We will go through and work on practice problems related to each of these concepts to help reinforce the material. 

Upon completing this course, I strongly encourage you to continue with my Fundamentals of Human Anatomy and Physiology Part 02 course.  This is the equivalent to a second semester of Human Anatomy & Physiology or A&P2.  A&P2 will be a systems-based course where we will hit the ground running by going over a comprehensive analysis of the nervous and sensory systems.  We continue by talking about the endocrine systems, the cardiovascular system, rental system, lymphatic and immune systems, gastrointestinal systems, and wrap up the “semester” by going over the male and female reproductive systems.

While my goal is to go over all of the fundamentals as comprehensively as possible, the onus is still on you to make sure you understand what I have gone over.  Play and replay my videos as many times as necessary until the material sticks.

Prerequisite(s):

-Basic biology

-Basic chemistry

-Basic physics

-Basic algebra

Suggested material:

-Any foundational anatomy textbook

-Any foundational physiology textbook

-Flash cards!!!

  • Yoga & Meditation - Decoded! what is written in the classical texts of Yoga as Patanjali's Yoga Sutras ? Yoga Vashista ?,  etc are nearly 3000 years old, hence the contemporary man finds it difficult to corelate to the modern scientific era. There can be no relationship because the approach of education today is through science, while the texts belongs to pre -scientific days in CODIFIED messages .

  • Today the environment is different, the body chemistry is different, the food is different, mind is different so I would like to introduce modern man to the highest ESSENCE of YOGA in a scientific way not only intellectually but experientially also .

  • The teaching technique should be scientific so that one can easily perceive why he has to do certain posture, why he has to breathe in a certain way, where you will understand the dysfunction of the body and mind - HOW & WHY  they arise and how can they be overcome.

  • Yoga is misunderstood, misinterpreted, looks like gymnastics .eg Hatha yoga in the earlier days was practiced in monasteries, these people were just doing yoga, nothing else but can you expect the same thing from modern man who has to work for his living and hardly he gets time for himself .

  • I will teach yoga in the non monastic way so that you don't have to disrupt your daily routine .
