The Teacher’s Guide to Accessible Yoga: Best Practices for Sharing Yoga with Every Body offers support and guidance for yoga teachers and yoga therapists to deepen their teaching skills and make their classes appropriate, useful, and effective in this moment.
Jivana Heyman, author, teacher, and yoga therapist with nearly 30 years of experience, shares skills and techniques through real-life scenarios, wisdom from guest teachers, yoga philosophy, and deep reflections that are directly applicable to yoga teachers today.
Can you imagine what it would be like to have your yoga teacher celebrate your differences? It would bring validation, a sense of being seen, and a feeling of belonging. It would lay the groundwork for transformational acts of self-acceptance and self-love.
An illuminating path for teaching yoga that can function as a living crucible for social change and social justice and that weaves a conception of yoga that authentically expresses the values of inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility.
- Matthew Sanford, author of Waking, founder of Mind Body Solutions
Most yoga teachers I know are incredible people who are truly dedicated to the practice and want to serve with their whole heart (and I love you for that!).
This book is a message of hope that comes out of my gratitude for all of your service.
Traditional yet fresh, respectful yet innovative, Jivana has written a book that welcomes ALL.
