Teaching Inclusive Yoga 2: Making Asana Accessible
Sunday 17 & 24 July 2022 10am-6pm

Overview

Join a revolution of yoga teachers who are socially-aware, accessible and inclusive.

Training to be a yoga teacher is a transformative journey, and sharing the benefits of yoga with others is often an experience that defies words. However, often contemporary yoga practices, cultures, and communities are exclusive and inaccessible to a wide variety of people, for a wide variety of reasons.

All too often, students may feel like they don’t belong in a yoga space.

This training is designed to address this, by guiding yoga teachers towards the skills and framework necessary to dismantle the dynamics of yoga culture that prevent people from feeling included and welcome.

In Teaching Inclusive Yoga 2: Making Asana Accessible, we’ll explore a variety of strategies, techniques and possibilities for enabling asana practice to be a joyful, inclusive experience.

Who is this course for?
This course is suitable for anyone interested in deepening their knowledge and understanding of how to teach asana inclusively and accessibly. It is particularly suitable if you are looking to share yoga with vulnerable and marginalised communities. We welcome interested students, teacher trainees, and yoga teachers.

This module is offered as part of Nourish’s 300 hour teacher training, but can be taken by any teacher wishing to improve their skills in this area as Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The module will run as five weekly sessions of three hours, and combine theory, practice and skills development.

Nourish Yoga Training's 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training is registered with Yoga Alliance (International), and is completed as a series of standalone modules which can be taken over 3 years. There are limited spaces available. If you are taking this course as CPD or part of our 300 hours, you are able to miss one session and a recorded session can be provided for the missed module only at no further cost.
