Yoga Classroom Therapeutics (YCT)

A new yoga student brings the tensions from decades (or perhaps from lifetimes) with them.  They may not be able to do things you take for granted.  How do you help them?  Every pose has a quick trick, an extra prop, an adjustment or variation that will make yoga accessible to them.  Learn how to help the yogis who need extra help.  A YCT training is available for each of our YTT programs, for Levels 1, 2, 3 & 4.
