Join the Accessible Yoga Movement!

Accessible Yoga is an international advocacy organization focusing on sharing yoga with all. We offer Accessible Yoga Conferences, Journal, and the Accessible Yoga Network. The Accessible Yoga Training focuses on how to make the Yoga teachings available to everyone, regardless of their level of physical ability. We’ll focus on creating Integrated Accessible Yoga classes where all students can practice together. We’ll explore the many ways that Yoga practice can be modified to suit students with disabilities, physical challenges, as well as seniors.

We’ll consider how to make our classes welcoming to everyone, and to approach students in a trauma-informed way. You’ll learn sample Accessible Yoga classes, chair yoga classes, and even bed yoga classes. We’ll also look at ways of bringing the yoga teachings and meditation into your classes, and how all of yoga can be used to support health and healing for every body. We’ll also review common medical conditions so that you have a basic understanding of these issues.

Graduates of the program become Accessible Yoga Ambassadors and connect with a network of Accessible Yoga teachers and students around the world. Participants who have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training will receive 30 CE contact hours for Yoga Alliance.
