532Yoga Studio in Old Town Alexandria
How we take the principles of yoga into our classes is important to your development as a teacher; we are not the same. Instructing Yoga for Special Populations Workshop, part of the Teacher Training Program, will discuss adaptions and modifications to create a safe environment for all types of students. This 4-hour training Paige will offer a basic overview of restrictions some may encounter, and how to adapt the practice using positive language that makes the student feel empowered; all while maintaining the integrity of the practice. This is not a certification in specialized areas; this will introduce you to adaptions and modifications in your classes with an awareness of special conditions. For this workshop we will discuss populations specifically for:
*PTSD and severe anxiety
Survivor of Stroke, Brain Injury, Cancer, or Assault
We will also discuss specialized trainings and ways to address groups who may not want to be touched.
