Program Details

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

Learn sound strategies for adapting yoga practice to older minds, bodies, and spirits in a training that combines the best contemporary, scientific knowledge about the physiology of aging with yoga’s traditional wisdom. 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 senior bodies, including chair-based practices and appropriately modified postures for those able to get down and up from the floor
  • Learning about common ailments affecting older adults and how to respond to students’ complex medical challenges
  • 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 interested in what it means to age well.

Recommended reading and viewing T. K. V. Desikachar, The Heart of Yoga (Inner Traditions) and Kimberly Carson and Carol Krucoff, Relax into Yoga DVD.

Note Tuition includes a manual.
