Namaskar Diana,

This is interesting because this subject comes up once a month within the office.

Twisted intestines are a very complex matter.

It depends on exactly where her inestines are twisted.

For example: Volulus is potentially fatal and surgical intervention might be needed right now.

On the other hand, if an obstruction blocks the blood supply to the intestine, the tissue may die, causing infection, gangrene, and possibly death.

If she has her doctor's permission, her doctor will tell her what she should and should not do.

Generally speaking, she should be able to perform postures which don't require her to fold or twist.

However, I would still tell her to come up with a doctor's note for your conscience.

There are too many potential liability factors for you to assume without assurance from her doctor.

About continuing education: You are welcome to look through the courses to see, which direction is best for you.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
