Yoga for Seniors Teacher Training

For yoga teachers who have completed a 200-hour teacher training. Scholarship eligible.

Learn strategies for adapting yoga practice to older minds, bodies, and spirits in a training that combines the traditional wisdom of yoga with the best contemporary scientific knowledge about the physiology of aging. 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 older bodies
  • Learning about common ailments and complex medical challenges affecting older adults
  • 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 committed to learning what it means to age well.
