Ever wanted to know how to deal with various kinds of students?

Gentle or accessible  yoga is an approach to yoga where all muscle groups are worked individually, allowing each posture to be comfortable while still being balanced, strengthening and stretching, allowing for relaxation. With this method, any student can safely follow the program and experience the benefits.

Students don’t need to adapt to yoga, yoga is flexible enough for everyone.  

This training will focus on how to make yoga practice available to all types of students.  Many students are attracted to gentle yoga, and the program will explain the methodology needed to work with them.  This includes students with different fitness levels, those starting a practice later in life or who are knew to yoga, students with injuries or mobility difficulties, students who are overweight, pregnant, suffering from anxiety, and students who may have various other reasons for attending a gentle class.

Feel more confident in your class by learning how to teach yoga to all types of students.
