Navigating Health Cautions & Considerations in a Gentle Yoga Class
If you have attended the Gentle Yoga for Seniors Teacher Training, you may attend this follow-up gathering with Megan Morris. This 2-hour workshop will go more in-depth about how to support your gentle yoga students when they come to class with specific health concerns. We will review the many possible conditions your students could be encountering and cover variations of common gentle yoga postures that address these conditions. Time will be reserved for students to share any struggles they have encountered in their teaching of this population & troubleshoot real-life classroom situations.
