Limited Capacity full

In the Accessible Yoga Workshop, we’ll answer the question, “Who deserves the teachings of yoga?” And we’ll look at practical ways to make the teachings and practices of yoga available to all students regardless of ability or background. In particular, we’ll look at how to integrate different levels of ability into our classes so that we can serve the needs of all of our students.
We’ll consider how the essential principals of yoga are accessible to everyone, and how the challenges that come with disability, illness and pain can lead to greater wisdom and insight. The program will include a mixture of discussion, yoga practice, and practice teaching.
Content includes:
  • How do we make yoga accessible? Considering the role of the yoga teacher in accessibility.
  • Variations of a few popular asanas, including chair yoga and bed yoga versions.
  • Techniques for creating integrated Accessible Yoga classes.
