As a yoga teacher you can welcome them to the practice and offer them a safe and effective experience, and you can serve them with skill and kindness.
In this three hour immersion, Jivana will cover some basic concepts and skills that will support you on your journey to share yoga in a respectful and generous way. He’ll cover basic tools for adapting asana, pranayama, and meditation, as well as skills for teaching integrated classes with students in chairs and on mats. He’ll highlight many of the concepts shared in his new book, The Teacher’s Guide to Accessible Yoga, and share some best practices for making your offerings truly accessible and welcoming.
