For yoga teachers with min. 1 year of yoga experience.
Learn sound strategies for adapting yoga practice to older minds, bodies, and spirits in a training that combines the best contemporary, scientific knowledge about the physiology of aging with yoga’s traditional wisdom. Seniors represent the fastest-growing sector of the population, creating an increasing demand for well-trained yoga teachers.
Each day of this training involves
- A balance of lecture, movement, small-group work, practice-teaching sessions, and discussion
- Yoga sessions geared for senior bodies, including chair-based practices and appropriately modified postures for those able to get down and up from the floor
- Learning about common ailments affecting older adults and how to respond to students’ complex medical challenges
- Conceptual models for skillfully adapting postures and practices.
In a safe and effective teaching environment, students earn Yoga Alliance CEUs and have the opportunity to integrate with a larger community interested in what it means to age well.
