Program Details

Thousands of people yearn to move their bodies, dance, and do yoga—the elderly; people with Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, or Alzheimer’s; breast cancer survivors; and others with special needs who might feel marginalized and unable to move as freely as they would like. Let Your Yoga Dance® is a fabulous workout and a delightful experience that’s adaptable for each student’s needs, providing therapeutic benefits—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

In this training, learn how to

  • Work with special populations
  • Create yoga, breath, and dance experiences in and around chairs
  • Provide a rich, complete, and powerful Let Your Yoga Dance class for those who need to remain seated
  • Empower your students with spontaneity, creativity, and fun
  • Focus on the individual needs of each participant
  • Practice teaching in a safe, caring, and joyful environment.

Note Tuition includes a manual. In order to receive a diploma, students must take Let Your Yoga Dance Teacher Training, Module 1, either before or after Special Populations training. Please complete and e-mail this health and training information form to megha@letyouryogadance.com prior to the program start date.


I would highly recommend this training, even if you have no current intentions of working with special populations. The training introduced me to a whole new aspect of dance, and awakened my creativity. I think Let Your Yoga Dance for Special Populations is on the leading edge of something remarkable.
