Amber & Dianne here. Our inaugural Yoga For All training class was a huge success. We had over 90 teachers participate in this groundbreaking class, and several of them have already been sharing their success stories with us.
These new Yoga For All Teachers have started new classes, gained more students, and expanded their teaching toolbox to accommodate a wider range of bodies, abilities, and backgrounds.
We want you to do the same. With the tools and tips we’ll share with you, you can:
- Expand your offerings as a yoga teacher
- Bring in new students from a huge, untapped market of folks who think they’re “not right for yoga”
- Become a better and more inclusive yoga teacher
- Bring the transformative power of yoga into new lives
This Yoga For All mini-course will give you solid teaching tools that you can bring to your students right away. We’re so glad you’re joining us.
We are two yoga teachers who are also yogis in larger bodies. We’ve both been singled out, shamed for our size, made to feel less-than. We never want that to happen to your students. That’s why we’ve created our online course – Yoga for All: Creating Body Positive Yoga Classes for All Shapes, Sizes & Abilities. We want to share more than 50 years combined experience on the yoga mat to show you how to make your classes welcoming to all.
Today’s training is about Plough Pose (Halasana). This pose is extremely challenging for both of us, and for many students in larger bodies (or with larger breasts). We are going to show you how to make this pose more comfortable and accessible for a wider range of bodies.
We hope you’ll enjoy this sneak peek of the type of training we offer in our full Yoga For All course. We know your time and money is tight but we are confident that this training will change the way you teach, forever. We hope you can join us for the full Yoga For All course. Registration opens on September 14, and we can’t wait to launch the course again on September 28.
In the next video, we’ll break down two poses that give lots of yoga students trouble: chaturanga dandasana and upward-facing dog. We’ll look at ways to prop these poses as well as build the upper body and core strength to perform these difficult asana.
We’d love to hear from you. Leave us a comment and let us know what difficulties you’ve run into with plough pose. How did this prop setup seem to you? Were you able to use it with your students? Any other questions?
We’ll be in touch shortly with another video, so stay tuned.
With love & gratitude,
Amber & Dianne
