This workshop is designed to provide yoga teachers tools to teach the new yogi or inflexible body with modifications to poses or flows. This workshop will also give yoga participants the confidence to walk into almost any yoga class, while giving yoga teachers the confidence to adjust a class for new or less flexible students.

Taught by:
Mary Irby – C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, CTP
DeAnne Priddis – RYT 200

In Yoga for Inflexible Bodies, you’ll learn to

  • Develop an understanding of yoga practices for various body types
  • Compare the use of props and modifications in selected asanas to validate the most effective application of asana for individual body types
  • Create a yoga class that will build confidence and encourage comfort of participants that view themselves as inflexible or new to yoga

Ever heard people say they aren’t flexible enough to do yoga? Yoga for Inflexible Bodies will give you the tools to work with students living in a less flexible body.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the refund policy?

There are no refunds on any continuing education courses unless we cancel the course. This is because we make a decision as to whether or not to hold a course based upon enrollment. Once we are committed, we incur expenses.

For distance study courses, there are no refunds. Once someone has the materials, we can’t refund fees because we have upheld our commitment by providing the learning materials.

For live RYT courses, there is a three (3) day (72 hour) cancellation period. Once a student enrollment is completed, a student may make a written refund request within 3 days (72 hours) and 100% of funds paid shall be returned. All refund requests must be delivered in writing to the school and an email must be sent. The postmark shall serve as the refund request time. If the request is delivered by hand, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure he/she has a written receipt showing the date and time the request was received.  Other live RYT course refund policy is outlined below.

Outside of this, no refunds are granted because we have saved a spot for you and can’t always fill it without adequate time. However, if circumstances warrant, we may offer a student an opportunity to use some of their funds toward another training date. For example, if a student becomes ill or has a family emergency, we will work with the student on a case by case basis. In these situations, we strive to find a solution that is fair to the student and our business.

If we cancel any class, students will receive a 100% refund.
