Have you ever had a student who’s unable to perform even the most basic Hatha poses? You want to help them, but you aren’t sure how. Join Satya Greenstone for the Adaptive Hatha Yoga Teacher Training to learn how to accommodate students of varying levels and abilities.

- 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 for all of your students. Teaching techniques learned in this training will give you more options for accommodating people with limited mobility, students in private classes, and various levels in group classes.
