The Adaptive Gentle/Chair Yoga Teacher Training provides a solid foundation for Yoga teachers so that they will know how to adapt the traditional Yoga asana for those students who may be limited in movement owing to age, illness, disability, or injury. Through the use of gentle assists, various props and mindful observations, the teacher will receive an overview of how to adapt and teach those students who have all types of limitations and age-related conditions; and how not to feel insecure when working with them.

This course prepares you, the teacher, to adapt, adjust, and accommodate the traditional Yoga class so that students of any age, shape, ability, or disability may enjoy the Hatha Yoga experience safely and comfortably.

In this training you will…

  • Receive an in-depth training manual, specifically designed to support you as you continue to grow as an Adaptive teacher
  • Gain access to a student portal that provides a centralized location for all your training materials, recordings of the daily practices, and other resources to facilitate a deep immersion
  • Collaborate with your fellow teachers-in-training during break-out sessions, designed to help to get to know one another
  • Practice teaching and receive constructive feedback from your trainers and peers
  • Work one-on-one with people living with specific conditions
  • Observe and participate in several classes including Gentle Mat, Chair, and Restorative Yoga; Yoga for Arthritis; Yoga for the Heart; Yoga for people living with multiple sclerosis; and Yoga for Osteoporosis
  • Complete a research paper exploring a physical or mental condition of your choosing and develop a practice to support the student with that condition
  • Create and design your own Chair/Gentle Mat Yoga class to share as your final practicum
