Body Temple Online
Liz Gillem Duncanson developed a keen eye for efficient movement through her involvement in music and dance. Reinforced in high school and college through formal studies in Sports Medicine and Athletic Training, she brought these skilled lenses to physical therapy school and honed them further with elective studies in Osteopathic Manual Manipulation and Strength and Conditioning in graduate school. She discovered yoga in an unlikely setting: the fitness gym while refining the art of procrastination before an important exam. Her first in-person class seemed ordinary at the time, but the subtle shift was transformative. The yogic philosophies and breathing techniques became a secret to her success. While working as a licensed physical therapist in the out-patient orthopedic setting, she found these skills incredibly useful and empowering in her own healing and her clients. She wants to share these skills beyond her private practice and is writing the book Cultivating A Sustainable Core, to share these secrets with you.
Body Temple Online Webinars and Education began in 2019 as a modern solution to share knowledge and compassionate health care. Initially, this space was intended to be a platform for sharing the integrative, evidence-based continuing education for physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, yoga teachers, and yoga therapists. We originally were a branch of Body Temple Physical Therapy and Yoga, a brick and mortar wellness private practice in Oakland, California.
It soon became apparent that the online continuing education business needed its own entity. We were working on this when suddenly, on March 17th, 2020, the San Francisco Bay Area was ordered to Shelter in Place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We pivoted immediately to offer safe, Telehealth sessions to our scheduled physical therapy and yoga therapy clients. We shifted the use of this platform immediately to serve the greater wellness community.
