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.

    Had a great time learning and training with HFE. All learning materials are great with all the information you need. The app with the digital versions is even better if you get free time to read them at work.

    I recently completed the Level 3 dip in mat Pilates. From start to finish has been brilliant. In person, via email or on the phone all trainers have been professional, knowledgable, helpful and consistent. I will definitely be continuing and upgrading my fitness training in the future with HFE.

    I really enjoyed the course, it was hard work and challenging but online learning and tutor support are very good. The trainers at the weekend study days were great...
