Have you ever thought, “I’m committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for ALL students, but I don’t quite feel equipped to teach folks with disabilities, larger bodies, or seniors.” If this sounds like where you’re at, you’re invited to join Jivana Heyman for the upcoming AccessibleYoga Training Online. This 35-hour course was specifically designed to help teachers bring the universal teachings of yoga to ALL practitioners by creating accessible, integrated classes through the practical understanding of yoga philosophy, trauma-informed teaching practices, and a vast toolkit for adapting asana and meditation to suit every body in the room.
