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.

    After dreading this course for months it was time to attend and as I say wasn't looking forward to it! But the tutors were great very relaxed and friendly didn't make things too complicated explaining all elements, end up getting really good feedback at the end of the 1st weekend so felt a little more confident to take my exam!
