Adaptive Yoga — 50 Hour Course

2020 Dates Coming Soon!

Yoga Yoga’s Adaptive Yoga Training is the place to learn sensible and safe skills to teach yoga to all. We believe the value of a yoga practice is found in the benefit the student receives, and this training empowers teachers to inspire a variety of student populations. This course will give you the skills you need to work with active seniors as well as elderly populations. Learn to adapt and tailor the practice for bigger bodied students of all levels-both beginners and advanced students. Focus on using chairs and other props when working with  students recovering from injuries or who have mobility limitations.

Approximately half the course will cover teaching and practicing chair yoga. A chair can be used to replace a yoga mat, becoming an extension of the body and allowing anyone to fully enjoy Yoga’s amazing wellness benefits. Chair Yoga is great for individuals who work in an office, have difficulty moving to and from the floor or prefer the support and stability of a chair in their practice.

Students may benefit from adaptive yoga due to:

  • Balance Challenges

  • Arthritis

  • Knee & Shoulder Injuries

  • Long hours in chairs

  • Disc Problems

  • Bigger Bodies

  • Limited Mobility

  • Difficulty moving to and from the floor

This 50-hour Advanced Training course has been designed to give 200-hour certified teachers the knowledge and practical skills needed to offer the benefits Yoga to as wide a range of students as possible. Your teachers, DeLora Frederickson, Mark Uridel, and Everitt Allen have combined decades of experience teaching yoga to an often-underserved student population.

In this training, you will learn:

  • Asana modification for students with physical limitations.

  • Working with active seniors and elderly populations

  •  Bigger bodies-modifications to help beginning and advanced students

  • How to integrate pranayama and sound into your classes to promote health and wellness of the body and mind.

  • The anatomy and physiology of disorders that might lead a student to be in a chair yoga class,

  • Business principles of teaching chair yoga, such as where to hold classes, how much to charge, marketing, and more.

  • How to promote your business and serve students needing adaptive yoga.

Alice found her way to yoga in 2000 practicing both Kundalini and Hatha styles. She found that it helped her calm her mind and emotions as well as strengthen her physical body. Alice became a registered yoga teacher in 2003 after attending Yoga Yoga Teacher Training. Since then Alice has passionately continued to deepen her understanding and knowledge of yoga through her own practice and by studying with a range of knowledgeable teachers. Alice is a certified doula with ALACE.

Alice’s teaching is greatly influenced and informed by Gary Kraftsow, Gurucharan and Donna Farhi, as well as her own experience and practice. Alice has a great passion for working with and teaching women. In her Prenatal and Postnatal classes she places an emphasis on the needs of the student as an individual. Alice also has a gift for working with beginners and uses this gift when teaching her Kundalini Foundation Series. Alice also teaches Hatha, Restorative, and Children’s yoga.


DeLora has taken extensive training to teach yoga to students at all stages of life. In Yoga Yoga Teacher Training she completed Level One and Level Two Kundalini training.  She also studied deaf education and graduated with a degree in speech. In 2012 she graduated from Yoga Yoga’s Flow-Based Hatha program as well as Sadie Nardini’s Evolution Vinyasa Teacher Training.

Sarah began her yoga journey in 1998. After being an avid Hatha student for a few years, she craved deeper study and became a registered yoga instructor through YogaYoga’s Teacher Training in 2004. She was specifically interested in the study of prenatal yoga.

Because her own pregnancies were so powerfully influenced by her practice, she was drawn to share yoga’s transformative effects with mothers-to-be. She became certified through Leslie Lytle’s OmMama Yoga to teach both prenatal and postnatal classes, to support mothers and their babies. She is very passionate about creating a community of support and self care as women transition into the beautiful path of motherhood.

She was voted Best Prenatal Yoga Instructor at the 2012 Austin Birth Awards, and she continues her discovery of yoga as she pursues her 500 hour certification.
