As our boomer generation ages, one is six people are seniors, making retirees the fastest growing population in America. This mature demographic is more active and health conscientious than previous generations, and receptive to the recommendation of yoga as a path to wellness by health care professionals. The need for yoga teachers with training and sensitivity to the special needs of aging bodies is growing. and older teachers are often a source of great inspiration to their peers as role models.

This RYT-200 training is designed for those who are older, with an towards teaching students age 50 plus. This course includes all the material required for national certification so our trainees can teach all ages and levels once we complete the material, but we will emphasize the special needs and considerations of mature bodies and the daily practices we participate in will lean towards softer, gentle classes appropriate for teacher in 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 (rather than aerial) , Reiki 1 and 20 classes to support your journey. Each session begins with a gentle, inspirational yoga class, a followed by our RYT studies that explore the 8 limbs of yoga with anatomy, alignment, posture focus, and methodology, energy studies, yoga philosophy and more. Reiki level 1, journaling and all requirements for yoga alliance certification are included, 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 Retreat Center.
