Adaptive Hatha Yoga Teacher Training
with Satya Greenstone, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT
August 18 - 27, 2023
For Yoga teachers and health professionals
Yoga is for every body, regardless of shape, size, or ability level. Join Satya Greenstone to learn how to make the sacred practice of Yoga accessible to all students of varying levels and abilities.
This ten-day course teaches you to adapt the Integral Yoga® practices to meet the needs of any individual. You will explore the essential benefits of each asana and determine how to best implement them without strain—regardless of your students’ physical, mental, or emotional conditions.
This training explores:
- Adaptations of asanas (postures)
- Chair Yoga (helpful for students with limited mobility or space)
- Gentle warm-ups and stretches
- Safe and effective prop use
Adaptive Yoga gives us the tools to reach various populations that may not have had access to the benefits of Hatha Yoga. In addition to Yoga studios, Adaptive Yoga classes can be offered in senior centers, rehabilitation facilities, recreation centers, hospitals, churches, and community centers.
An Adaptive Yoga class provides all the benefits of the basic Integral Yoga class at the level that the individual student is capable of practicing. You will learn to create safe, comfortable Yoga sessions and study how to accommodate people with limited mobility, students in private classes, and practitioners of various levels in group classes.
200-hour Integral Yoga Teacher Training or the equivalent. Certified teachers from other traditions may also apply for consideration.

The program exceeded my expectations! I learned so much more than how to adapt asanas. The experience of fully being immersed in living yoga was so beneficial. Satya set aside time to call me and talk to me about the program, making me feel secure in my abilities and expectations during the training. I felt she held space for all of us and our different abilities, practice, and spirituality. — Sharon Monaccio
