Yoga for Amputees will teach you how to plan and execute yoga classes for people with amputations. What you will learn to teach will allow amputees to experience the amazing health and wellness benefits of yoga. You will learn sequences for above-knee, below-knee and upper-extremity amputees, with or without prosthetics, in a wheelchair or with crutches. The course includes innovative ways to practice standing, seated, forward bending, back-bending, supine and prone yoga poses.
The training is open to yoga teachers, physical therapists and others who are working with amputees. It is designed for professionals already working with amputees or those who would like to work with amputees. It is a teacher training - not for amputees or yoga practitioners.
There will be a free yoga class offered on Sunday to amputees. This will be offered to the amputee community, and will be part of the teacher certification.
The cost for the training weekend is $297, and must be paid in full prior to attending. CLICK HERE to register.
