- Classical asana classes for people with disabilities, chronic illnesses or injuries.

This can range from teaching slightly modified classes, to entire classes taught in a chair or in a bed.
The course focuses on the practical application of yoga techniques and the psychological insight necessary for helping students with disabilities – no matter what their age – to better utilise yoga.
- Yoga anatomy and physiology of the ageing process
- How to empower people with disabilities by giving them a deeper understanding of the yoga teachings
- Using additional tools such as a chair, a blanket, a strap and a cushion
