In this practical 5-day programme you will 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. This can range from teaching slightly modified classes, to entire classes taught in a chair or in a bed.
The course focuses 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.


  • How to empower people with disabilities by giving them a deeper understanding of the yoga teachings
  • 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
