Principals of Adaptive Yoga
Allow the student to experience sense of presence and connection throughout their body regardless of one’s disabilities or neurological limitations.
“…a good yoga instructor will get you to touch your toes; a great instructor will remove the desire…”
How Yoga Works
We are not here to FIX anyone
No one is broken
Yoga is in EVERY BODY, we are here to reveal it.
Conditions of safety must be met in order for Yoga to happen.
Always choose safety first
Get to know your students
Follow medical restrictions of each student
Remind students they do not have to do every pose
It is not what the pose looks like, it is what the pose feels like. We look for sensation/s
The instructor adapts NOT the student
Adjusting the class to fit the student/s
Be cognizant of your own safety
If you are not safe in your own body, you can injure your student and yourself
What came first, the Chicken or the Egg?
SAFETY CAME FIRST!
