intro

The latest figures show that life expectancy continues to rise and could in fact reach the late 80s by 2030. People are not just living longer, but they are also staying active and looking after themselves. Because of this, the demand for exercise professionals able to work with the older adults special population continues to increase.

Our Level 3 Yoga for Older Adults has been specially designed to enable yoga teachers to safely plan and deliver classes that cater to the specific needs of older adults. It provides a fantastic CPD opportunity for those currently teaching, or any new professionals wishing to widen their skill portfolio.

Therefore, this specialised course covers:

  • Designing and developing yoga lessons for older clients
  • Adapting, modifying and progressing yoga asanas/pranyamas

As the course also incorporates the Level 3 Exercise for Older Adults qualification, you’ll also gain an understanding of:

  • Chief Medical Officer recommendations for 65+ years physical activity
  • Specific breakdowns of physical, muscular, skeletal, metabolic and cognitive exercise benefits
  • How to break down barriers of participation

 

assessment

To provide you with the best possible chance of gaining your qualification, we will assess you in a variety of ways:

  • Exercise modifications worksheet
