Online yoga certification for teachers who want to reach students in non-traditional yoga bodies.
Learn how to teach yoga to all body shapes, sizes, and abilities
Most yoga teacher training programs teach you how to create yoga sequences for young, thin, able-bodied students. What about the students who show up to class who are older, plus-sized, or have physical limitations?
Yoga For All is a five-week online yoga certification course that teaches you how to adapt yoga poses for older, larger, and differently-abled students. This self-paced course is offered completely online so you can fit it into your busy schedule.
Each week, you’ll receive self-paced online lecture videos on critical yoga topics as well as asana videos that break down how to teach and modify yoga poses for the non-traditional student. You’ll also be provided with reflection prompts and given the opportunity to take action on what you learned. The private Yoga For All Facebook group offers the opportunity to network with other Yoga For All students and graduates, as well as ask questions of Dianne and Amber.
- Ways to make your classes more inclusive for all bodies
- How to create an environment of safety, agency, and consent
- Dozens of modifications to make yoga poses more accessible, for everything from sun salutations to savasana
- How to use yoga props to help your larger bodied and differently-abled students get the most out of their practice
In addition to the weekly module content, Yoga For All includes downloadable bonuses like the Yoga For All teacher training manual, vinyasa sequences for those who are recovering from injuries, and class planning templates.

Yoga For All bridges the gap between teaching the bodies I saw in my yoga teacher training manuals and the varied bodies that show up to my classes. I learned to modify classical poses to make them accessible to larger and differently-abled bodies, but more importantly, how to cue and talk to students in an accepting and affirming way. I highly recommend the training to anyone who wants to teach authentic, individualized yoga. Worth every penny of my investment and I’m a better teacher for having completed the program.
