Lead Faculty Evolution Yoga Teacher Training
Dr. Carscadden has been practicing yoga for over 23 years. As a licensed physical therapist she was first drawn to ways that yoga improved flexibility, strength and clarity of mind. Gradually over time she discovered the full breadth of yoga’s practices. She received training in the healing art of yoga therapy and started integrating yoga practices into her patient treatment sessions. Janet completed her 200 hour certification in Vibrant Living Yoga Teacher Training in Bali and became a lifelong student of the eight limbed path of yoga. She opened Evolution PT and Yoga in 2006 as a goal of creating a practice where yoga and medicine intersect.
Janet’s classes include pranayama, slow flowing sequencing, restorative postures, guided relaxation and meditation all built around a central theme. Drawing on her expertise of the physical body. Janet offers her students accessible instruction in alignment and anatomy to understand how to modify practices to their individual needs. She challenges students to remain focused on the present, meeting their practice where they are at that moment in time.
Dr. Carscadden teaches weekly a weekly drop-in Yoga Therapeutics Spine and Hips class on Tuesdays 4:30-5:30 pm, Yoga for a Healthy Back 6 week series, Yoga Nidra, Yoga Wall and Psoas Release Workshops. She is lead faculty in our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga Therapeutics for Healthcare Providers Courses.
Evolution is amazing for both physical therapy and yoga.
I began telehealth PT a month ago in the midst of Covid-19 office visit limitations. I had considerable shoulder pain and restricted range of motion that severely impacted my activity. Within one month, my level of pain has dramatically decreased and my activity level is almost back to normal. I think telehealth is an excellent means of doing physical therapy. Dr. Janet Carscadden is a superb therapist in every way. She provides skilled and carefully planned guidance and support. I was so incredibly surprised how well this platform of health care delivery worked for me!
My practice of Kaiut Yoga with Julia O’Shea has been essential to my overall health and well-being over the past year. Julia does an amazing job of providing modifications and adaptations that work for each individual and has helped me work through many physical issues. She is a talented and extraordinary teacher of this healing method of yoga. The delivery of these classes online during this challenging time has been a wonderful contribution to our collective wellness.
Thank you, Evolution Physical Therapy & Yoga! – NS
