Yoga for Arthritis Teachers Intensive Level 1 – Online

with Steffany Moonaz, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, Ph.D.

November 2 - December 7, 2020

For Yoga teachers and health professionals

In this online training, discover how to safely and effectively teach Yoga, with individually-tailored practices, to people with arthritis. This online teacher’s intensive training combines contemporary scientific rigor, Yoga philosophy, and heart.

Over 20% of US adults are living with arthritis, and 78 million people will be impacted by 2040. It is vital that Yoga professionals learn the tools and skills to work with this underserved and growing population.

You will learn:

  • Arthritis basics, joint anatomy, and the Yoga for Arthritis protocol
  • Asana adaptations for a limited range of motion and pain
  • The effect of arthritis on all koshas and the mechanisms for Yoga’s impact

Yoga for Arthritis was developed by Dr. Moonaz based on her experience conducting clinical research with interdisciplinary medical teams at Johns Hopkins University, National Institutes of Health, and several New York City hospitals. Health professionals will learn skills to use in their scope of practice.

Live sessions with Steffany Moonaz on Mondays and Wednesdays* from 5:30–8:30 pm ET.
* No class on November 25.

In addition, you will have access to the daily Ashram’s Live Yoga classes at 5 pm ET, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talk with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until February 1, 2021.
