Yoga for Special Considerations (Immersion Workshop)

February 24, 2023 @ 6:00 pm – February 26, 2023 @ 1:00 pm
Waynesville Yoga Center
274 S Main St
Waynesville, NC 28786
Waynesville Yoga Center

This immersive workshop will outline the techniques and methods that can best serve instructors – and students – when special considerations are known in a yoga class. Special considerations include – but aren’t limited to pregnancy, recent injuries, psychiatric disorders, high blood pressure, migraines, and more.

Yoga instructors are not in a position to treat or diagnose any medical condition or illness, but rather to mindfully assist students in and out of yoga poses with awareness of any issues they may have shared. This can be accomplished with props, alignment principles, and knowledge of these special considerations.

This immersive workshop will be taught by Jay MacDonald and Lynda Saffell. To learn more about them, click here.  

Schedule: Friday 6 – 9 PM Saturday 9 AM – 6 PM (with a one hour lunch break) Sunday: 9 AM – 1 PM

Cost: $250
