Teaching Yoga to Adults and Children with Multi-sensory Impairments
1 day workshop – Coming Soon
As part of Sense’s Deafblind Active project, which has been funded by Sport England, they’ve collaborated with Special Yoga Foundation to provide this workshop in the hope to increase numbers who can teach Yoga to the Sensory Impaired. The aim is to empower existing Yoga teachers to feel that after this one day workshop, they can be confident to offer Yoga to the Sensory Impaired population – the workshop will provide practical skills and tools that can be used.
The course is designed specifically for Yoga Teachers, Body Workers or those interested in developing yoga and massage work in a 1:1 or small group situation with a congenitally Deaf-blind/Multi Sensory Impaired child or adult. The day will include teaching, discussion, DVD, tutorials and practicals.
Our students say…
“I would highly recommend this course not only to yoga teachers but to everyone who works with children and adults with special needs. Graham is a very inspiring and skilled teacher. He shared so many useful ideas and I can’t wait to implement them in my own practice.”
“It gives practical information, tools and experiential experience and skills in relation to working with people with MSI. The training is delivered in a professional, passionate and heart-felt way; Graham’s humour, skill and insight is excellent.”
