RYT-200 Yoga Teacher Training for ages 50 and up
Oct 19, 2021 - Mar 8, 2022

This RYS-200 training for 50 plus at the Heartwood Yoga Center is designed for aspiring yoga instructors who are older, with an towards teaching students in the later stage of life. This course includes all the material required for world recognized certification so our trainees can teach all ages and levels, but we emphasize the special needs and considerations of mature bodies. The daily practices lean towards softer, gentle classes appropriate for teacher trainees that do not want to stress their bodies with advanced postures, inversions or physically taxing material that they are unlikely to use when they teach their own demographic.

The program includes Chair Yoga certification (unless students wish to come back to take Aerial certification as their elective) and the focus is often on accessible yoga and gentler approaches to the physical practice. Each meeting begins with a gentle, inspirational yoga class, followed by our yoga studies that explore the 8 limbs of yoga with anatomy, alignment, posture focus, and methodology, energy studies, yoga philosophy and more. All requirements for Yoga Alliance certification are included and we provide a full 200 online course students can use to revisit the material after they graduate for ongoing support and reference as they teach. All participants should be 50 or older, or have physical considerations that make this the best training for them and their goals as a teacher.

Come prepared to have a wonderful time, get in shape (inside and out) and enjoy the inspirational and beautiful facility of Heartwood Yoga Institute.

This course meets each Tuesday from 8:30-3:00 . The weekly meeting helps everyone keep their practice progressing and makes it easy to digest the material and the weekends help us complete in a reasonable time frame (for those who travel). We also meet one weekend for Chair Yoga Certification- An alternative elective, Aerial Yoga, is also available.

To complete the 200 required hours, students must also complete an online anatomy course at their own pace.

We do not meet on Tuesday, Nov. 23 or Dec. 21 or 28 for holiday breaks.

Since there is no food plan with this training, students bring their own lunch each day.

Chair Yoga Certification
Nov 13, 2021 - Nov 14, 2021
This 20 hour certification will provide yoga teachers as well as health practitioners or individuals involved in senior fitness activities with a strong understanding of Chair Yoga: theory and practice. Participants will gain the skills required to bring yoga to students who might otherwise not be able to embrace a practice. (For those that are eligible RYT teachers, the 20 hours qualify for your continuing education credits.)
Along with the meditation, breathing, and relaxation techniques, you will learn how to adapt the classical Yoga asanas to the chair rather than the floor in a therapeutic context. Material is offered for students of a variety of skill levels and circumstances, but the emphasis is for mature adults and those with physical limitations that need a chair to make yoga accessible. The course reviews the physical limitations and problems that interfere with a traditional mat practice, helping a teacher understand the goals and benefits of chair yoga, while establishing a toolbox of postures and sequences for future classes. An anatomy segment focuses on deteriorating joints and common issues that senior clientele may be dealing with, such as HBP, Osteoporosis, Glycaemia, wrist weakness and loss of balance

A small portion of the seminar is devoted to more advanced yoga practice techniques to
explore how a chair can be incorporated into a traditional practice, geared toward fully-capable yogis, for the purposes of variety and new skill challenges or restorative yoga.

Since the circumstances (and thus the chairs) may vary for different teaching situations, we make available and encourage the attendees to explore different chairs, including wheelchairs, office chairs, balance balls, and traditional yoga chairs. A certificate in chair yoga is provided at the end of the course.
