Accessible Yoga Trainings

The Accessible Yoga Training focuses on how to make the yoga teaching available to everyone, regardless of their level of physical ability. We’ll focus on creating integrated Accessible Yoga classes where all students can practice together. We’ll explore the many ways that yoga practice can be modified to suit students with disabilities, physical challenges, chronic illness, seniors, and anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable in a regular class.

We’ll consider how to make our classes welcoming to everyone, and to approach students in a trauma-informed way. You’ll learn sample Accessible Yoga classes, chair yoga classes and even bed yoga classes. We’ll also look at ways of bringing the yoga teachings and meditation into your classes, and how all of yoga can be used to support health and healing for every body. We’ll also review common medical conditions so that you have a basic understanding of these issues, and review essential concepts of yoga philosophy to build your understanding of the teachings.

Graduates of the program become Accessible Yoga Ambassadors and connect with a network of Accessible Yoga teachers and students around the world. Participants who have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training will become Certified Accessible Yoga Teachers.

Trainings are held across the United States and worldwide. For information on future training dates and locations, as well as a detailed curriculum, sample daily schedule, and information on the trainers, see


  1. Hi there, do you have to be 200-hour yoga teacher certified in order to take an accessible yoga training? I am interested in taking this training but am not 200-hour teacher trained. I work in the health profession field and am 100-hour yoga for emotional health and healing certified.

  2. The short answer is no, you do not need to be a 200-hour certified yoga teacher to attend. See for more information about the trainings.
