Gentle Yoga Workshop
with Tara Durga Devi (Terry Crane)

Gentle Yoga is designed for students who need to have the basic yoga postures modified due to age, weight, illness, injury or limited flexibility due to chronic stress or poor lifestyles. In keeping with the principle of ahimsa (nonviolence) the postures need to be modified so that these students can safely benefit from a physical practice and to be able to fully relax and concentrate. This course is designed to help yoga teachers evaluate limitations in their students and prescribe modifications for them. And for current students to be able to modify the postures to suit their bodies safely. The workshop will also include a discussion on the philosophy and psychology of gentle yoga and aging. The format will include a full gentle yoga class followed by a discussion.
