Adaptive Yoga Teacher Training
Yoga offers a wide variety of healing practices and tools for transformation. This therapeutic approach aims to bring these practices to everyone, including those with mobility limitations and chronic pain. Yoga teachers and yoga therapists will learn techniques to help improve the physical and mental health of those with visible mobility issues (spinal cord injuries, orthopedic issues, stroke); non-visible injuries (TBI, PTSD); central nervous system diseases (multiple sclerosis); and degenerative diseases (muscular dystrophy). Through hands-on practice and discussion, we'll learn how to truly adapt postures for our students' bodies. This deep yet accessible work can help develop strength, cultivate empowerment, and give students the confidence to challenge their limitations.
