The evolution of yoga practice will see more and more people of all types of mobility and ability seeking instruction to meet their personal needs. The day of a 200 or 500 hour training even beginning to produce a yoga teacher capable of addressing those varied needs is fading in the rear-view mirror. Even more disconcerting is the rise of yoga training programs being taught by people with those very credentials.
Smart Safe Yoga is intended to be a place where yoga professionals like yourself can gain quality instruction in aspects of yoga that will allow you to grow in your practice to meet the increasingly complex needs of the “average” yoga class. This will require not only new understanding and techniques, but systems within your delivery model to be sure things get done smart and safely.
Ask yourself these questions:
- How many times in the past month have students approached you with a health concern?
- Did you get any or questions about the appropriateness of some aspect yoga related to challenge they were having?
- Did you feel confident in being able to offer them direction or answers that kept ahimsa in the forefront before convenience or personal comfort?
This site is designed to provide you with consistent systems that minimize the chances of harming taking place via injuries while building your reputation and practice as the “smart, safe place to go for yoga information.”
