This is a full day course adapted specifically to suit a yoga class environment. Sandra aims to encourage confidence and competence by providing the knowledge to enable teachers to give immediate but temporary care to someone suffering an unexpected illness or accident. At the end of the course, students will have an understanding of emergency medical situations that can occur in a yoga class; feel confident and competent to deliver the appropriate first aid/care in any situation that may arise; assess an unconscious person and deliver emergency first aid; understand the importance of accurate record keeping.
The day is interactive with a wide range of first aid and medical resources available. This course is certificated and a handbook is provided as part of the course. The certificate is valid for 3 years.
