How to Teach Very Gentle Yoga Teacher Training

May 6 | 1:15 – 5:15pm
May 7 | 12:15 – 5:15pm
Barre Studio at acac West Chester
Members: $270 | Non-Members: $295

This ten-hour training has been developed for those already teaching and for teachers-in-training who wish to reach out to the underserved populations of the deconditioned, overweight, and senior crowd who can practice more than a chair class. Standing, reclined, prone, side-lying, seated and poses from the table will be explored. A plethora of modifications, adaptations and down regulations will be demonstrated. The forty-page manual includes five full sequences and tips for setting up the class and lesson planning. There is extensive use of props and discussions about contradictions especially about weight issues, arthritis, joint issues, heart disease, eye issues, lung disease and vertigo. 

Judy Curiel, PhD, ERYT 500, has been practicing gentle yoga since 2004, teaching very gentle yoga since 2007 and has studied over 2000 hours beyond her original 200 hour certification. She has compiled all she has learned from her personal practice, her teaching experience, and her trainings to create a comprehensive adjunct training to compliment any 200 hour or 500 hour training from any tradition.
