Accessible Yoga Training with Jivana Heyman


Accessible Yoga Training focuses on how to make the Yoga teachings available to everyone, regardless of their level of physical ability. We'll focus on creating Integrated Accessible Yoga classes where all students can practice together. We'll explore the many ways that Yoga practice can be modified to suit students with disabilities, physical challenges, as well as seniors. Graduates of the program become Accessible Yoga Ambassadors and connect with a network of Accessible Yoga teachers and students around the world. Participants who have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training will become Certified Accessible Yoga Teachers.  30 Yoga Alliance CEUs.
