Yes, I do, but not necessarily as a yoga pose. There are a good many movements(cat and camel, for example) that have found a home (and a name) in different modalities, even including physical therapy.
Since I do not teach yoga and have no instruction in it, I use ‘poses’ only when they are familiar to me from other forms of exercise.
Yes I do, but I am a certified Yoga instructor as well as a trainer. I have a few short pose flows that I use at the end of a session. Supine stretches work very well together and flow nicely. for example with client on their back have them draw knees to chest ( a bundle pose), then w/ feet on the floor they can lower knees to one side then the other holding on each side for at least 5 – 10 breaths. Then Bridge pose, then supta budaha konasana, (cobblers pose, but lying down), then they can roll over to the right side take a few breath then come up to seated. I usually take that time to talk about our next session.

Sure! Funny though, I don’t always remember the origin of certain movements i.e., is the cat/camel something I learned in yoga class years ago (yes), or in a Stu McGill workshop (yes)….just from different perspectives. It’s a fantastic move for spinal mobility. Other postures I regularly incorporate into my clients’ sessions include:
