Course Description

As teachers, we have probably learned safety cues and precautions as standard protocols in our teacher training programs. But understanding the whys and what-ifs from an anatomical and physiological perspective will allow us to articulate and demonstrate these safety precautions with confidence.


“What a great duo! The pairing of Marjorie’s very clear and informative cues-well delivered and complete-with Justine’s expert explaining the reasons why, demonstrations and engaging us in being cued in poses – was brilliant, and extremely applicable. Very important!”

“Really loved it! A lot of questions that I always wanted to ask and finally get some answers.”

“This was an excellent segment of the workshop to remind us of how important it is to provide good and safe instruction.”

Bio: Marjorie Old, Creator of the Gentle Yoga Teacher for Every Body DVD, and Justine Shelton, ERYT500 and Creator of a series of Gentle Yoga Therapy DVDs, will share a therapeutic perspective to the most common misalignment and structural challenges we encounter in our Yoga teaching.
