Special Needs Teacher Training

This course is for yoga teachers and work professionals with some working knowledge of yoga. With a firm foundation in yoga, and having been teaching students or working with special needs for some time, this training is a perfect supplement for your work, and is to introduce you to the concepts of yoga for those with special needs.

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.
