How do you feel about teaching yoga to someone in a wheelchair, or as a caregiver, suggesting yoga to your client? What will you say when a potential student calls and says, “I have a broken leg / Multiple Sclerosis / Cerebral Palsy / (fill in the blank), can I come to your yoga class?” This workshop will not only help you answer that question, it will also offer you a different way of approaching your own practice and teaching. Learn More
"The community that inevitably develops in any class . . . keeps bringing me back. Even if every person has a different disability or challenge, the environment is mutually supportive and many of us look forward to that time of the week when we get together."
