You will learn the essential benefits of each asana and determine how to best implement them without strain—regardless of your students’ physical, mental, or emotional conditions.
Yoga is for every body, regardless of shape, size, or ability level. Learn how to make the sacred practice of Yoga accessible to all students of varying levels and abilities. Take the next step in your career as a Yoga instructor and deepen your own spiritual growth by experiencing the peace of Yoga in the homeland of Sri Swami Satchidananda.
This training explores:
- Adaptations of asanas (postures)
- Chair Yoga (helpful for students with limited mobility or space)
- Gentle warm-ups and stretches

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.
Tuition includes double accommodations, texts, three daily vegetarian meals. It does not include airfare, airport transfers, or excursions.
