The Accessible Yoga Training focuses on how to make the yoga teaching available to everyone, regardless of their level of physical ability. We’ll focus on creating integrated Accessible Yoga classes where all students can practice together. We’ll explore the many ways that yoga practice can be modified to suit students with disabilities, physical challenges, chronic illness, seniors, and anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable in a regular class.
We’ll consider how to make our classes welcoming to everyone, and to approach students in a trauma-informed way. You’ll learn sample Accessible Yoga classes, chair yoga classes and even bed yoga classes. We’ll also look at ways of bringing the yoga teachings and meditation into your classes, and how all of yoga can be used to support health and healing for every body. We’ll also review common medical conditions so that you have a basic understanding of these issues, and review essential concepts of yoga philosophy to build your understanding of the teachings.
Graduates of the program become Accessible Yoga Ambassadors and connect with a network of Accessible Yoga teachers and students around the world. Participants who have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training will become Certified Accessible Yoga Teachers.

Babywearing yoga unites parent and child through the use of a carrier allowing them to experience a yoga class together. The class will guide parents through breathing exercises to help reduce stress and tension in the body, yoga poses that support the muscles of babywearing and pelvic floor health, and guided meditation that encourages mindful parenting and emotional parent/child connection. Students are encouraged to practice with special attention to their physical ability (specifically post-partum moms) and their child’s developmental needs (holding head when necessary, etc).
Class will be tailored to pre-walkers but is open to children up to 2 years old. Children do not have to remain in the carrier for the entire class; however, they should be comfortable being worn in the carrier. Parents should wear their child in a carrier and bring a mat, bottle of water, and any feeding/changing materials needed during class. A small blanket for the baby is suggested for lying on the mat. Parents are encouraged to feed, change, and take a break with their child as needed during class time.
Carrier suggestions: parents should be able to lift both hands over head with baby in carrier to be comfortable in this class; children should be worn in a safe position with open airwary in a damage-free carrier.
