Special Needs yoga teacher training

Most teachers tend to shy away from teaching special needs, mainly as they do not understand the ‘condition(s)’ they have. Some people are scared, some feel that they would ‘feel sorry’ for them, or for some it is too far out of their comfort zone to go there. These reasons are completely understandable, and as humans we do tend to fear that which we don’t understand.

This training is set about to educate you more in the more common specialist needs. Within the training you will be learning not just about what postures, breathing, meditations, or relaxations are best for them, you will also a great deal more about the ‘condition(s)’ of the student. This training is to be educational as well as inspiring you with yoga postures and techniques in which you can use.

For this online learning you will be required to do 12hrs of actual contact teaching with a special needs class, or one-one student. There are ten modules for you to cover in this training.
