Accessible Yoga | Ashram de Yoga Sivananda | Yoga | France

Learn how to adapt a classical asana class to the needs of students with physical disabilities or chronic illness, the elderly, and people with injuries. From teaching slightly modified classes, to entire classes taught in a chair or in a bed, focus on the practical application of yoga techniques and the psychological insight necessary for helping students with disabilities – no matter what their age – to better utilise yoga.

Workshop Topics:

  • How to empower people with disabilities by giving them a deeper understanding of the yoga teaching
  • Using additional tools such as a chair, a blanket, a strap and a cushion
  • How to create a positive group dynamic
  • Deepen your personal practice of asanas, pranayama and meditation
