Teach Students Needing Adaptation with Ease
Today's average yoga student is not average at all. We are moving away from an industry dominated by young able-bodied students to one filled with students of all backgrounds and needs. Today's yoga teacher needs to be equipped to teach students of all abilities, understanding their unique needs.
In this course, gain a comprehensive understanding of how and why we can adapt our teaching to be more welcoming to more students. Expand your skills and offerings by learning anatomy, physiology, and contraindications for a variety of common physical limitations and conditions and how to modify asana and other practices to best serve these populations. Learn how to adapt your language and your whole approach to teaching to be more supportive and inclusive, empowering students to have their best experiences.
