Inclusive. Informed. Uplifting.
This is Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training for Disabilities + Differences.

Using time-honored yoga practices, modern mindfulness techniques, and best practices from adaptive, accessible, and inclusive approaches, teacher trainees learn to facilitate creative and educational experiences through a unique methodology that aligns with the developmental and social needs of these special populations. No prior experience in either yoga or working with diverse groups is necessary; we will teach you what you need to know!

The Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training for Disabilities + Differences offers a variety of tools and strategies to empower you to create meaningful yoga and mindfulness experiences. Experienced trainers share their own passion for this work as they facilitate a fun and inspiring training curriculum. Trainees are given opportunities to interact and observe, to learn about what works for others, and to come up with original ideas for sharing the wonder of yoga and mindfulness with these groups.
