Later-in-life students come with their own needs, considerations and expectations. This training will give practicing Yoga Teachers hands-on experience with the senior student. We will explore Yoga philosophy and concepts from a later-in-life student perspective. This training is constructed to offer a balance of lecture, movement, small-group work, practice-teaching sessions, discussions and individual work.
During the 50+ hours you will delve into:
Image and assumptions of the older student
Adjustments for the older body
Adapting asanas for mobility and health limitations
Vocabulary and Communicating with a late-in-life student
Anatomy of the aging body and mind
Hands-on teaching experience with Senior students
Explorations of how to create a Yoga practice for students with Osteoporosis, Arthritis, Diabetes, and other common health concerns of the older student.
