Tutor: Richard Kravetz
Date: 26th September 2020
Time: 10:00 - 16:00
This training will help practitioners gain an understanding of how to approach teaching Yoga to less abled individuals. It will provide teachers with the tools to demonstrate how to make yoga’s therapeutic benefits accessible to adults with a variety of specific needs, so they can be incorporated into their class.
The day will include guidance on assisting the elderly towards maintaining a degree of exercise and movement and helping to slow down deterioration in older age.
You will become increasingly confident in making a difference to the lives of those who experience difficulty taking part in traditional yoga classes and learn how anti-rheumatic methods help release tension in the limbs and relax muscular tension in the joints.
You will learn how to structure and plan a Yoga session for adults with mobility issues or access requirements, and how these can be integrated into a class situation or one to one. You will plan a yoga session for different populations to include neurological conditions such as Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke and Parkinsons and age related issues around sensory impairment, arthritis and other age related conditions. You will experience how pranayama and chanting techniques can be introduced effectively and the benefits of these methods.
The objectives of this training are to provide a solid foundation for participants to approach a yoga class with those with additional needs, and the right guidelines and practices to improve their teaching.
