Adaptive Gentle and Chair Yoga Teacher Training

March 20–22, March 27–29, April 3–5, and April 19, 2020

Taught by Hamsa Spagnola, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, T.R.M.
with assistants Rev. Sam Rudra Swartz and Tania Taravati Turcinovic

The Adaptive Yoga Teacher Training provides a solid foundation for Yoga instructors so that they will know how to adapt the traditional Yoga asana for those students who may be limited in movement owing to age, illness, disability, or injury. Through the use of chairs, the wall, straps, bolsters, blankets, blocks, and gentle hands-on assists, the teacher will receive an overview of how to adapt and work with students who have limitations ranging from arthritis to cognitive impairment, MS, spinal cord injuries, various diseases, and age-related conditions. This course prepares you, the teacher, to adapt, adjust, and accommodate the traditional Yoga class so that students of any age, shape, ability, or disability may enjoy the Hatha Yoga experience safely and comfortably.

While the bulk of the course focuses on asana (postures), you will also learn how to deepen the students’ experience through pranayama, meditation, Yoga Nidra, and Raja Yoga (Yogic philosophy).

You will receive a rigorous review of anatomy and physiology as it relates to various conditions, including what to do and what not to do for specific issues.
