As yoga teachers we often encounter students who have some sort of physical limitations. One student cannot touch their toes as they have issues with their back, another cannot be on their knees due to a previous injury and yet another cannot raise their arms over their head due to tight shoulders, and these challenges go on and on.
We need to be able to provide options to our students so that they feel supported, comfortable and empowered by their practice. This is why it is important to be able to adapt classical postures so that they are more accessible for each student we encounter.
During this workshop, you will work with individual poses and learn how to adapt each pose by utilizing many different variations within the pose. You will explore different conditions such as back and shoulder issues, knee problems and balance issues as well as look at the benefits
of various props, chairs and working at a wall to create comfort and accessibility for a wide variety of poses. You and the other students will be challenged to create various sequences and adapt them for specific classes and student’s needs.
By simply modifying a pose, we can change and alter the effect of pose both physically and energetically. Pose adaptation is one of the most effective skills you can have as a yoga teacher to assist your students and help them have a better experience during their class.
Adaptation is an invaluable resource for yoga teachers and Jill and Kimberly are excited to explore the possibilities with you!
