Yoga Adapted for Older Students:
A Workshop for Teachers and Experienced Students
January 19th 2013
As Australia’s large ‘Baby Boomer’ generation moves into senior years, I believe it’s vital for yoga teachers and students to understand how to adapt a yoga practice for older students.
In this half-day workshop, attendees will learn how one’s changing anatomy influences yoga practice and how and when to adapt practices to work with common ailments of the ageing process. This course comprises a mix of theory, discussion and practise.
I feel that my 40 years’ involvement with yoga, practising and teaching, and working through my own life stages have prepared me well for helping senior students. My bi-lateral hip surgery following many years of osteoarthritis makes me uniquely placed to understand the physical challenges of growing older.
Who will benefit from attending?
Yoga teachers, trainee teachers, and experienced, older yoga students.
