Teaching Accessible, Adaptive and Inclusive Yoga Classes for Wheelchair Users Workshop with Rodrigo Souza

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, Mobility is the most common disability, affecting 1 in 7 US adults, that is 14.29% of the population. Yes, I know! That’s a lot of folks!

In this 90-minute online workshop, we will broadly walk (or roll!) you through the journey of; Yoga and the Nature of Disability, Common Neurological Conditions, Adaptive Yoga, Ableism & Inclusive Language, Basic Safety Considerations and Teaching Tips.

You will also learn the benefits of Adaptive Yoga, how to teach wheelchair users and how to design an inclusive and accessible class; how to sequence, chair yoga variations, inner awareness, language, and how to truly create a welcoming experience and space when a wheelchair user student comes to your class.

If you would like to make your offerings more accessible to this population, join us!

What to bring along: This Workshop will be predominantly lecture-style, so please bring a note-book and pen, or device for note-taking, some water, and a sturdy chair, or your wheelchair.
