As more and more baby boomers are feeling the aches and pains of getting older, it becomes increasingly important that yoga teachers expand their skills sets to learn to modify their practices to meet this need. This yoga teacher training is designed for yoga teachers who wish to learn practices and techniques for working with older populations.
Senior Yoga is a safe, effective, practice of yoga designed to meet the needs of all levels of senior practitioners. Senior Yoga includes movement and postures to improve strength, balance, and joint function, as well as breathing and relaxation techniques.
Teacher Trainees will become certified Senior Yoga Teachers, and will be prepared to teach Yoga classes for seniors who are new to Yoga or just beginning an exercise program, as well as active seniors who are advanced practitioners. Teacher trainees will be certified to teach Senior Yoga in a variety of settings such as public group classes and one-on one private sessions to therapeutic populations including seniors with Osteoporosis, Arthritis, and Hypertension.Sign Up Now
