In 2017, Canada’s Seniors officially out numbered children.
With no signs of this trend abating any time soon, learning to teach yoga to our Seniors safely and mindfully is becoming an increasingly important skill in the yoga teaching world.
As our population ages steadfastly, understanding the common physical and mental issues and having the qualifications to teach yoga to this large segment of our population will provide yoga teachers with a unique and very rewarding niche.
Now in it’s 15th year, Breathe Yoga is committed to enhancing the well-being of our Seniors through our Yoga for Seniors training programs.
This training typically sells out. Please register early to avoid disappointment.

“I attended Andrea Peloso’s 40hr Restorative TT while simultaneously taking my 200hr TT, and I absolutely loved it. Andrea has a very easy-flowing and nurturing teaching style that makes you feel immediately comfortable and at ease. She is incredibly knowledgeable and up to date with current affairs in the yoga world. I am so grateful to have come across this specific training as I found this teaching to be more of a “true” restorative-style yoga than what is taught at some other studios.” Nicole
“Andrea’s Teacher Training was both experiential and full of concrete knowledge and wisdom from her years of studying yoga and experiencing the teachings of a restorative yoga practice. This training taught us to nurture our students in a way that most western yoga classes do not allow.I also came home with a whole new set of poses and variations to explore… and without my previous fear of using props!”– Shelaugh Earle-Meadows
