Accessible Vinyasa, a Yoga Alliance accredited continuing education program for teachers both new and experienced; offers techniques and resources to make Vinyasa yoga accessible to a wide range of levels and bodies.

 

Many Vinyasa Yoga teaching techniques focus upon guiding practitioners whose strength and mobility are without limitation. It requires a unique skill set to craft a ‘gentle’ vinyasa to allow beginners and limited mobility practitioners to move with fluidity and calmness. Intelligent sequencing and a focus on ‘stages’ of postures (Vinyasa Krama) helps teachers structure asanas to meet each practitioner. Teachers will learn how to support students to feel empowered through flow regardless of body, age, or skill.

 

Teaching yoga safely requires supporting all students including and especially those with common injuries, joint replacements, misalignments, low kinesthetic awareness, and general decreased flexibility or strength. Teachers will complete Accessible Vinyasa feeling prepared to empower a wide range of populations using techniques specific to each.
