Let Your Yoga Dance Teacher Training for Special Populations

Thousands of people yearn to move their bodies, dance, and do yoga—the elderly; people with Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, or Alzheimer’s; breast cancer survivors; and others with special needs who might feel marginalized and unable to move as freely as they would like.

Its a delightful experience that’s adaptable for each student’s needs, providing therapeutic benefits—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
