I have not used yoga as an intervention for OT. However, I am aware of its use in mental and physical rehab settings. #otalk
Mary Booth @MaryBoothOT

Hi everyone! Really interested to know how you think yoga and mindfulness techniques can be incorporated into your OT practice? #Otalk

My first awareness of this came from here- https://t.co/h8ZQbKUNv0. I have seen it offered yoga groups to college students. #otalk
Janet @janetregan3
@OTalk_ I am lurking, while also trying to put the kids to bed and work on an assignment #student #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTalk_ 🙋‍♀️ I’m here! But dual tasking with a stats assignment, so might be a bit quiet! #otalk

Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@EmilyKellett7 I work at a child development centre mainly with autistic children. I think yoga and mindfulness would be great as an intervention to support these kids but I am not trained nor do I do it for myself personally #otalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@EmilyKellett7 I do use the interoception programme which is based on mindfulness techniques with good results with autistic children #otalk

@OTalk_ Hello #OTalk
Rachel Hall @RachHallster
@OTalk_ Hi all. I’m here! #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
I see yoga as a potential treatment for groups in rehab settings, particularly in geriatrics. It can be therapeutic for patients to do alongside one another. #otalk
Nabachwa LL @NabachwaOT
@OTalk_ Hello, evening all. 👋🏼 I am lurking as well and will contribute where I can. I just quickly read the blog for tonight’s chat, looking forward it. #OTalk
Rachel Hall @RachHallster
@OTalk_ Apologies, predictive messages! #otalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@SusanGriffiths5 That sounds perfect! It might be worth exploring it a bit for yourself first- for me, the real understanding of it came from personally experiencing and having that desire to bring it into practice! #Otalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@EmilyKellett7 We are so lucky to be able to support our patients to access yoga classes with a qualified yoga instructor, who can adapt the work they do. My only experience with mindfulness is recommending a well known mindfulness app #otalk

Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@OTalk_ What do you perceive as the barriers to introducing yoga and mindfulness as an OT? #Otalk
Catherine Rodgers @CathRodgers13
@EmilyKellett7 Back in 1991 we ran an Iyengar yoga group in a mental health day hospital. It was well attended and noticeable how people's confidence improved. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
And since today is #worldstroke day, I thought it is also appropriate to share this. https://t.co/GmAKqA9pUI #otalk
Dianne @OTStudentDianne
@OTalk_ Here 🙋🏻‍♀️ #otalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@EmilyKellett7 I have tried going to a class but I have a hearing impairment so I can’t relax because I am constantly listening out for the instructor to give us the next instruction. I am always one step behind everyone 😂#OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Don’t forget the #OTalk
Nabachwa LL @NabachwaOT
@SusanGriffiths5 @EmilyKellett7 I would be interested to know more about this Interoception Programme as well. That and what kind of results/outcomes are linked to children with Autism. #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ I thought that you had to do a course to become a mindfulness practicioner and the same to be a yoga instructor. So both are activities that I would encourage patients to look in to but not deliver myself #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
You need to put the hashtag in your tweets #otalk

Question 1 #otalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@OTalk_ this sounds very interesting and would surely have benefits for both mother and baby #Otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
and here's one on yoga and autism. https://t.co/hdmLO1thpI #otalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ Another factor would be patients perceptions of both mindfulness and yoga. Preconceptions can put people off trying them #otalk

Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ Training! Where would we start? The training courses I have seen for mindfulness tends to be for mental health or for pain. I have not seen any courses on using mindfulness for children #OTalk

Please remember to include the hashtag in all your tweets otherwise people will not see it and it will not make the transcript #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
And's here a link on yoga and mental health. https://t.co/J2itj0t2M1 #otalk
Catherine Rodgers @CathRodgers13
@OTalk_ You have to get over people's preconceptions and fears. These fears can be around physical ability, but also "looking right", having the right clothes etc. #OTalk
#hellomynameis Carolyn @CeeCeeOT
RT @OTalk_: Question 1 #otalk https://t.co/7L1Yc0Dn7j
Mary Booth @MaryBoothOT
@OTalk_ #OTalk and maybe better to have an experienced yoga teacher deliver it as part of OT program for those patients who wish to want to try it/do it
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@EmilyKellett7 Look up Kelly Mahler as she developed the interoception programme. She is coming to the UK next month to deliver training to OTs on this. I have used it to teach autistic children the skill of noticing their body signals #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Search for the #OTalk you will see that people are says. And remember to add the hashtag in al all your tweets https://t.co/TKrYOcMxQL
SuzanneW_1 @SuzanneW_1
@EmilyKellett7 @SusanGriffiths5 My teenage daughter has autism and finds mindfulness/yoga really challenging, it heightens her anxiety. Made me reflect on how others experience it #Otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
I will make more comments when I check out my notifications after the chat., since I don't have much practice related experiences to share. #otalk
Janet @janetregan3
@MaryBoothOT @OTalk_ Yes, I was going to say something similar. Like everything, it is a matter of understanding that while it has massive benefits for some people (myself included), it might not be beneficial to everyone #OTalk
Samantha Pywell @smileyfacehalo
#Otalk q1. Barriers.... room that reduces outside distractions eg traffic, funding to run it, funding to train staff (self fund to deliver?), choice of client group (as could be huge), to offer free sessions or charge and if charge how much as a classic barrier is costs
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@SusanGriffiths5 You might like the Downward dog app; I use it a lot at home which would take that pressure and allow you to enjoy it! #Otalk
Catherine Rodgers @CathRodgers13
@MulryMary @OTalk_ Agreed there are financial barriers of becoming a qualified trainer or buying in. Also needs to be thought about how a patient transfers into their everyday life - finance, environment, routines. It is so important to introduce things that can be continued independently #OTalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@NabachwaOT @EmilyKellett7 I see a large number of autistic children go from 0 (calm)to 10 (meltdown). They may recognise emotions in others but struggles to identify it in themselves. They don’t notice their body signals that tells them they are becoming anxious or angry until it too late #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@SusanGriffiths5 @EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ I wonder if @theRCOT has any guidance or recommendations? #otalk

Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@SuzanneW_1 @SusanGriffiths5 This is really interesting! Is she able to explain why? #Otalk
Dianne @OTStudentDianne
@EmilyKellett7 @RJOTSeashell @OTalk_ Did you get extra training in yoga Emily - sounds so interesting? #OTalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@NabachwaOT @EmilyKellett7 Some of the children also don’t recognise when they are hungry or full, cold or hot, or sleepy, or when they need the toilet, etc. Because they are not noticing their body signals. Mindfulness is good for this #OTalk
Samantha Pywell @smileyfacehalo
@CathRodgers13 @MulryMary @OTalk_ #otalk the cost of a session or several might not be compatible with an individuals finances when travel is factored in...... can these sessions be on “prescription” as well as private purchase?
Mary Booth @MaryBoothOT
@Louisepenny87 @SusanGriffiths5 @EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ @theRCOT #otalk is it Occupational Therapy unless meeting the need / goal for a patient. Rather than train self how about signposting.
#OTalk @OTalk_
You really need to include the hashtag in all your tweets otherwise people will not see it and it will not make the transcript #otalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@SusanGriffiths5 @OTalk_ I am actually delivering some training courses over this academic year for Yoga and mindfulness for children with Autism through the @seashelltrust if you were interested! #Otalk

Mary Booth @MaryBoothOT
@SusanGriffiths5 @NabachwaOT @EmilyKellett7 #otalk can you point us to the evidence please.
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@OTalk_ Question 2: In what ways do you think yoga could influence occupational performance in those you support? #Otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Question 2 #otalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@SuzanneW_1 @EmilyKellett7 This is actually quite common in autistic children. You may wish to look at the interoception programme as this breaks it down into much smaller concrete steps. Also mindfulness/yoga is not for everyone and that is ok #OTalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@SusanGriffiths5 @NabachwaOT I agree, and believe yoga also compliments this in bringing awareness to our physical bodies and tension we hold #Otalk
Catherine Rodgers @CathRodgers13
@smileyfacehalo @MulryMary @OTalk_ The HIU programme is looking into using personal health care budgets to fund these types of things. I think areas of Sout London already do it #OTalk
Mary Booth @MaryBoothOT
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ #otalk I’m not a yoga expert but if balance is an issue could it help. May help some people to relax and meditate and look after their own well being. But that could happen outside of Occupational Therapy
Louise @Louisepenny87
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ Enabling people to access activity that is meaningful to them can support them to self manage their recovery, increase activity, build confidence, manage mood etc. #otalk

Samantha Pywell @smileyfacehalo
@CathRodgers13 @MulryMary @OTalk_ #otalk so then if financial barriers are reduced/removed is it the barriers around knowing this is available from both a client and professional perspective....
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@OTStudentDianne @RJOTSeashell @OTalk_ I have attended the training by 'Special Yoga' which focused on yoga and mindfulness for those with Autism and ADHD. It was amazing and has really helped with my confidence in exploring it further within my work! #Otalk
Dianne @OTStudentDianne
Could this perhaps be a great opportunity to work collaboratively with physiotherapists? We can bring an occupational perspective of the wider benefits of engaging in yoga, and the physios can bring the expertise on the musculoskeletal benefits? #OTalk

@EmilyKellett7 @SusanGriffiths5 Not really, think she finds it intimidating, self conscious. Disoriented from it, like she stands out. Mindfulness is not for her #Otalk
Dianne @OTStudentDianne
@EmilyKellett7 @RJOTSeashell @OTalk_ That sounds amazing 🤩 thank you! #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ There have been some trials to look at the efficacy and effectiveness of yoga in the neuro population #otalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@MaryBoothOT @NabachwaOT @EmilyKellett7 Join Facebook group ‘Interoception: the eight sensory system’ as there are lots of links to research articles on evidence to support this #OTalk
Catherine Rodgers @CathRodgers13
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ In the group , the most noticeable changes were Volitional - positive shifts in personal causation. It's a major boost to stand on your head, aged 60 with no previous experience of exercise . Also lots of laughter , which is therapeutic #OTalk
Nabachwa LL @NabachwaOT
@EmilyKellett7 @Louisepenny87 @OTalk_ @EmilyKellett7 - It would be good to know if anything - information or otherwise, has been helpful in supporting people to make informed choices about engaging in Yoga. I ask because I have found it difficult to balance some people’s misconceptions on its spiritual aspect. #OTalk
Mary @maryartshealth
@OTalk_ #otalk I don’t see any barriers as introducing Yoga as part of a program of treatment for inpatient mental health facility or day center .
Hayley OT @hayleyot1
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ For some, could be a useful occupation for improved emotional self-regulation. This could subsequently increase successful occupational participation across the occupational performance areas #otalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@CathRodgers13 @OTalk_ LOVE this! #Otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
@EmilyKellett7 15 mins left of chat - what’s the next question #OTalk
Mary @maryartshealth
@OTalk_ #otalk but we always use trained teachers as it very specialised even though I have practiced yoga on and off for 20 years I would never run a yoga class
Mary Booth @MaryBoothOT
@CathRodgers13 @EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ #otalk wow maybe I need to take it up. In my 70s and getting up from floor is challenging
Mary Booth @MaryBoothOT
@maryartshealth @OTalk_ #otalk defo
Catherine Rodgers @CathRodgers13
@MaryBoothOT @EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ I'm not sure I could do it now, this was 30 years ago. But the teacher was amazing and it was fantastic to see achieve so much #OTalk
Rachel Johnson OT Seashell Trust @RJOTSeashell
@hayleyot1 @EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ I agree Hayley, self regulation to consequently increase occupational participation is the area I am most interested in #OTalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@NabachwaOT @Louisepenny87 @OTalk_ From my personal perspective this hasn't been an issue. I focus on the being in the 'now', engaging with your breath and body. Guiding them through physical postures for sensory/motor feedback. I take the sessions very slowly & carefully monitor their engagement. #Otalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@NabachwaOT @Louisepenny87 @OTalk_ I also encouraging humming rather than 'Oms' as I think it gives similar sensory and auditory feedback without that added spirtual context which I know can make people feel uncomfortable #Otalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTStudentDianne Yes, I would always want to discuss an intervention such as yoga with MDT colleagues before recommending it to someone #otalk

@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ I find using GAS goals the most flexible #OTalk
Catherine Rodgers @CathRodgers13
@smileyfacehalo @MulryMary @OTalk_ Getting the funding is never easy. Also there is the need to have the right to support to facilitate a routine change and enough internal motivation to continue long term #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ In the context of supporting someone to access yoga as a meaningful activity, a broad measure such as the COPM would be useful #otalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@RJOTSeashell @OTalk_ I agree. They allow us to look at individuals holistically based on their functional and everyday needs which fits perfectly when using Yoga and mindfulness approaches #Otalk

Catherine Rodgers @CathRodgers13
@Louisepenny87 @EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ I think the important point is to have SMART goals written around what the client is wanting from the intervention. Is is about the improved balance to be able to put socks on. Is it about integrating new and beneficial activity into their routine? #OTalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@EmilyKellett7 @OTalk_ Depends on the reason why yoga/mindfulness was recommended in the first place as to what evaluation tools you would use. I have used stress questionnaires and repeated the assessment of self-regulation with autistic children #OTalk

Nabachwa LL @NabachwaOT
@EmilyKellett7 @Louisepenny87 @OTalk_ 1/2 - That is good to know, thank you @EmilyKellett7. It was an issue in my personal experience of practising Yoga (as a beginner) years ago. I found Mindfulness to have a similar response from some people as well. That was how I knew to offer an alternative techniques... #OTalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@EmilyKellett7 @NabachwaOT @Louisepenny87 @OTalk_ Just out of interest is humming/om’ing necessary? I only ask because for me personally the sound is like fingernails on a blackboard, it makes my skin crawl and my body tense 😣#OTalk
Student Platform OT @SPOTeurope
Really interesting read if you missed tonight's #otalk!
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@SusanGriffiths5 @NabachwaOT @Louisepenny87 @OTalk_ I don't think it's hugely nessesary, particularly if it makes you feel like that! 🤣 It's supposed to bring union to the group and create sound vibrations through the sounds which also provide sensory feedback (although a true yoga instructor could probably tell us more!) #Otalk
Emily Kellett @EKOTSeashell
@SusanGriffiths5 @NabachwaOT @Louisepenny87 @OTalk_ I do find it helps kids learn how to extend their out breath and they like 'sounding like a bee'. So I'd suggest you do what suits you and your group/ 1:1 #Otalk
