As yoga teachers we serve people of all ages, including those with medical conditions who want to improve their health and well-being. Older beginning students with arthritis may present challenges to the yoga teacher: How can we safely guide them to gain mobility, strength, and balance? In this workshop, we’ll talk about each of the joints that are commonly affected by arthritis and how to create a sequence of yoga and Bodymind Ballwork practice that is safe and effective. We’ll have a short slide presentation, do the practices, and discuss the rationale and key instructions for each pose. Come with questions and an open mind.

Minimum: 2 tennis balls
