This program will equip you to teach and aid a broader audience with right sequence, as this program has Lecture Sessions and Practical Training that will tune you as an instructor to work with senior citizens and their postural issues.

Our mortality rate is higher than ever, so, as we live longer, our health seeks out better care. In the advanced ages, how we move and how often are of great importance. Yoga, with its refined modules of mindfulness in movement and breath-work, bring harmony in them besides also building strength, facilitate balance and garner more flexibility. But because traditional yoga practices may not be suitable for every older adult, special techniques and knowledge are crucial to help our growing population.

This program aims to achieve just that, so yoga or wellness instructors can have complete knowledge and training on anatomy and pathophysiology about the ageing human body, its poses and sequences to care better for them. The program will offer neuro musculoskeletal system and in depth postural discussion for Supine and Recovery Postures, Internal Rotation of the Hip, Strengthening the VMO , etc

For the Yoga instructors among you, this can help to take your specialisation further and raise how you impact lives, build your sessions and how you foster a healthier, more active ageing community. If you are a dancer, a runner, a climber or fitness enthusiast, this can enrich your experience of movement, filling you with more confidence and your movements with verve. And as you master these new techniques and knowledge, you become a vital contributor, individually and collectively, to the future health of the world.
