Yoga for Seniors and Older Grownups Training 2018
My mission in life is to get the world to embrace yoga as an essential means to proactively self manage physical, mental and spiritual health. To make yoga inclusive, accessible and empowering requires equipping yoga teachers, who already have the passion, with the knowledge and skills to safely support a diverse range of individuals in their classes. It is important, when teaching seniors and older grownups, to be able not only to offer choices and modifications, but to also educate them to be able to make informed choices. The Yoga for Seniors Teacher Training will go beyond teaching set sequences and modifications, by empowering yoga teachers to synthesise knowledge of the aging process, common health conditions and injuries, and health promotion best practice to confidently and safely support older individuals in their classes.
