Vinyasa Yoga for All

An Adaptive Approach To Teaching to a Wider Population
A 20 Hour Training With Margot Stokreef

Friday Sept 20 – Sunday Sept 22

This twenty-hour intensive will introduce participants to the essential practices of Slow/Gentle Flow, enabling a wider population to access all of the transformative benefits a Vinyasa Yoga practice offers: strength, flexibility, balance, calming the nervous system, anxiety reduction.

The workshop will look at how to teach students looking for a flow class at a slower pace and how to make a class accessible to seniors, people in bigger bodies and people with chronic disease and disabilities.

We will study the principles for sequencing a slower vinyasa class by exploring different modifications to traditional sun salutations and other asana.  Through the lens of  Yoga Therapy we will also:

  • do a general review on the nervous system
  • review pranayama
  • focus on the use of props and how to accommodate and teach a sequence on a chair
  • learn how to incorporate restorative postures into the class

For teachers, this session will cultivate both confidence and competence in sharing teaching with a wider population.For students, this will be an opportunity to immerse more fully into a gentle yoga practice.
