Ageing can bring many stresses, from the body weakening to loneliness and depression. Practising in a chair offers students unable to get on and off the ground the chance to share in the benefits of yoga.
This course will offer you the tools to provide students with the ability to build strength, awareness, confidence and to increase their well-being both physically and mentally. Included will be how to work with a group with Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and people with other needs for a modified practice, including office workers.
Other topics include anatomy of ageing, guided meditations, tools for better communication with a population that can have limited hearing and sight and how to approach retirement homes and community centres and businesses to share this wonderful practice.
This course is open to:
- yoga teachers, trained in any tradition
- those who work with the elderly
- those who wish to share yoga with loved ones who are elderly or have limited mobility
- those looking for a way to practice short yoga sequences in their office
Course counts as 8 hours of CEUs for the Yoga Alliance.
Enjoy this opportunity to help more people enjoy Yoga, improving their quality of life – especially our elders!Register
