Accessible and Body Positive Yoga Teacher Training (Postponed 2019)

  • Yoga Bowl Studio Lane Cover Tennis Club Sydney Australia (map)

Over this 2-day workshop for Yoga teachers, you’ll discover how to make your Yoga language, poses, classes and marketing more accessible to more people. We’ll learn ways to put students at ease and retain them - creating Body Positive classes for all.

Did you know: 

- If you have students under 25, a surprising 70% of them struggle with body image. 
- With just 20 students in your class, at least 5 of them will have a current mood disorder. 
- The average size woman in Australia is 14-16, which means 60% are larger - so catering to bigger bodies is increasingly important.

Yoga Teachers don't need to be therapists. Though we do need to make our classes a safe space for more people experiencing those struggles, and offer a welcoming and fun practice for them to return to our classes and studios.
