Event Details

For ALL Yoga Teachers and Students!
In 2021, Canada’s Seniors officially out numbered children. With no signs of this trend lessening any time soon, learning to teach yoga to our Seniors safely and mindfully is becoming an increasingly important skill in the yoga teaching world. Understanding the common physical and mental issues and having the qualifications to teach yoga to this large segment of our population will provide yoga teachers and care givers with a unique and very rewarding way to serve our communities.
In the training we will address common physical issues that will need accommodation in class, for example: osteoporosis, arthritis, COPD or CAD. Learning to create skillful modifications for older students, some coming to yoga for the first time, will allow for teachers and care givers to offer the gifts of yoga with confidence. Adapting to the needs in the room will allow for a strong, challenging, but equally relaxed and meditative practice.
The program covers:

  • Simple and profound postures
  • How to sequence a class
  • Teaching methods
  • Strength or flexibility
  • Classical Yoga philosophy
  • Teaching a mixed level class
  • How to modify for those who cannot reach the floor
  • Working with injuries
  • Contraindications
This course is ideal for yoga teachers looking to develop their teaching to meet the needs of a growing segment of the yoga population, or seasoned yoga practitioners who work with this demographic in some other capacity, such as nurses, home health care workers and care givers looking to share yoga with elders in their homes and community.
