About the Event

Learn how to share yoga with all people regardless of ability or background by looking at the essence of the practice, which is by nature accessible. We'll focus on creating Integrated Accessible Yoga classes where all students can practice together. We’ll explore the many ways that yoga can be adapted to suit students with disabilities, physical challenges, as well as seniors. We'll consider how to make our classes welcoming to everyone, and to approach students in a trauma-informed way. You'll learn sample Accessible Yoga classes, chair yoga classes, and even bed yoga classes. We'll also look at ways of bringing the yoga teachings and meditation into your classes, and how all of yoga can be used to support health and healing for every body. We'll also review common medical conditions so that you have a basic understanding of these issues. This course includes 21 classroom hours and 9 additional hours of required pre-course homework that is to be completed before the start of the course. Graduates of the program become Accessible Yoga Certified teachers, and connect with a huge network teachers and students around the world dedicated to sharing this ancient practice with everyone. Participants who have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training will receive 30 Yoga Alliance CE hours (21 contact, 9 noncontact). Training Dates: August 7-9, 2020 Training Times: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily Training Cost: $595 early bird through July 7, $650 regular price
