Online Gentle Yoga Teacher Training Program

Gentle Yoga Teacher Training Program Description

This Gentle Yoga Teacher Training Program was developed specifically to train Yoga teachers, healthcare professionals, senior fitness instructors, physical therapists and other practitioners who provide rehabilitation, exercise, and injury recovery modalities. However, you don’t have to be a licensed, professional Yoga teacher to be able to take this training or bring the valuable tools and lessons you will learn here into your own practice, business or treatment plans.

Gentle Yoga is a popular, in-demand form of specialized Yoga training. Sometimes referred to as Yoga for beginners, Gentle Yoga offers many different options and variations to suit people of varying degrees of mobility, ages, health concerns and skill sets. The best part about Gentle Yoga is it helps make Yoga accessible to people with injuries, physical limitations and/or chronic health conditions–people who often consider themselves to be unable to exercise at all!

To better understand how to serve these student populations, Yoga Teachers and other practitioners must understand the nature and anatomy of the limitation to ensure that proper movement guidelines are taught in their group Yoga Classes and/or private practice sessions.

Our Gentle Yoga Teacher Training Program includes video lessons and filmed live Yoga classes, downloadable training manuals, worksheets and guides for bringing Gentle Yoga into your community. All materials have been rigorously tested with thousands of Gentle Yoga students and Yoga Teachers, with glowing reviews! Students often report improved mobility, reduced pain, greater flexibility and increased happiness and peace as they feel more comfortable in their body, mind and spirit through the practice of Gentle Yoga! And the best part is, you can do this entire Gentle Yoga Teacher Training Program at your own pace.

Learn Creative Ways to Keep Your Student Engaged and Coming Back!

You will find this program full of wonderful ideas to make your Yoga teaching blossom and your confidence soar. This Online Gentle Yoga Teacher Training Program was designed to challenge you to learn more about what you don’t know, and feel confident that you will be able to apply these methodologies into your own community to improve the lives of others. Our deep dive workshops take you behind-the-scenes on how to research, design and deliver a Gentle Yoga class to meet the specific needs of your student population.

You will learn from a team of teachers, led by Yoga Vista Academy Co-Founder Sherry Zak Morris. Our instructors have decades of hands-on experience both with students and in training other teachers. We are committed to safe, effective Yoga techniques that are based on proper anatomy understanding and a personalized, thoughtful experience for our students. Come learn with us!

Why Take Gentle Yoga Teacher Training?

Gentle Yoga is a wonderful option for beginners and experienced students alike. What makes Gentle Yoga in demand is that it is perfectly suited to help people with impaired mobility, reduced range of motion, or who are recovering from a physical injury. Elderly fitness exercises are growing in demand as our population ages. Many athletes, doctors, corporations, schools and mental health professionals are recommending Gentle Yoga as a reliable, safe and effective method for maintaining long term health and vitality.

Yoga is gentle and accessible to everyone. More than just physical exercise, Yoga has proven benefits for improving mental conditions, such as anxiety, depression, sleep issues, stress, and emotional imbalances. Additionally, Gentle Yoga is more than just stretching. It builds strength and stability inside and out–even with a gentle practice!

Many students report improvement to ailments such as arthritis, low back pain, spinal conditions, sciatica, pelvic floor dysfunction, rotator cuff injuries, sports injuries, insomnia, panic attacks. Yoga is also recommended as a preventative practice, working to alleviate risks for conditions like osteopenia, tendonitis, bursitis, incontinence and fall-related injuries.

Some students even credit Yoga with weight loss, not only because of the physical exercise but also improvement to their mental health, lifestyle changes and healthier habits that often coincide with taking up the practice of Yoga.

Seniors are particularly impacted by Gentle Yoga, giving them useful, doable ways to bring fitness into their daily lives, with modifications and options based upon any particular health conditions or physical limitations they may be experiencing. Seeing a student transform from a place of pain, stiffness and discomfort to one of freedom, balance and mobility due to Gentle Yoga is the greatest benefit our Yoga Vista Academy Yoga teachers report as a result of our Online Program.

Yoga Vista Academy has a way about making you feel like you are a part of the yoga family. I couldn’t get enough of the videos and information. I am a visual person so having the videos were essential to my learning. Not only are they informational, they are enjoyable to watch and see the different personalities of each teacher. One day I called Yoga Vista to ask a question and I was thinking I would get an answering machine or something like that. Low and behold Sherry picked up!! I was so impressed and a little shocked. I can not say enough about the Academy. Well done from start to finish!!

My students love the work I have shared with them and feel its made such a difference in their lives. I have a student who has had surgery for breast cancer and she feels the poses and stretches we do have made more difference in her life than the PT she had after her surgery which was a couple years ago.

I’m so very glad that I decided to take both the Chair Yoga and the Gentle Yoga teacher training courses! I can honestly say that I use something that I learned from these courses in every Chair Yoga class that I teach (and I teach 3-4 every week)! Both courses were so very full of information and ideas! Even though I’ve been teaching chair yoga (and occasionally subbing gentle yoga) for a few years, I learned so much from taking these courses! Thank you, Sherry (and Justine!) for all you’ve given me!

Having a Crown Membership with access to YogaJP has provided me with invaluable resources that I have been able to provide to my students who range in age from mid 60’s to 97. You are both an inspiration to me and I thank you.

Many thanks to Justine, your students and yourself for the continued support that I received throughout the learning process. It is easy to become overwhelmed with all that there is to know, but you kept the information so well organized and consistent throughout the process. It was also easy to see the relationship between the chair yoga and gentle yoga materials which helped to make the dual-certification process even more rewarding for my students and myself. I highly recommend both for anyone who may be on the fence.

Taking this class has been an amazing experience for me. I am impressed with the amount of past and ongoing research you have put into it. This is obviously a labor of love for you and you must know how many lives you have touched. The lessons are well constructed and easy to follow. Your positive attitude is infectious. I LOVE all the videos and watch at least one a day, whether it’s chair yoga, gentle yoga, somatics, or one of the educational clips. One of the things I most appreciate is the time you take to make the class personal. You responded immediately to every email I sent, answering my questions an offering encouragement. I also appreciated the time you took to thoroughly review my teachback and provide specific, helpful comments. Where do you find the time and energy for all this?!? I am amazed. Thank you so much for the work you do. You have personally blessed many lives, and your love and compassion is radiated to the world through all those you teach. You are a gem.

I hope that I teach with confidence based on knowledge and a growing skill basis. Your courses are so well structured and detailed and I love the detailed functional anatomy understanding I now have.

I also like to imitate your approach of being in partnership with the students, sharing my knowledge so we can all be happier and healthier. I thought I was going to be ‘lost’ once I retired from teaching but have found a new satisfaction in life, knowing I am making a difference in the lives of others, even at my age.

I thank you for your wonderful instruction. Love it. Love it. The information you provide would make anyone a better teacher. My students love the information and knowledge they gain. They tell me that their doctors asked them what they were doing differently as their lung capacity has improved (some had very little lung capacity). They proudly told me that they informed their doctor the only new thing they were doing was Anna’s Yoga. Their doctors told them to keep coming. Same results for different students and different parts of their bodies. I can’t take the credit. We do a lot of your “While you are at it.” I am following your game plan and it is amazing. I must admit I knew nothing about the human body before I took your classes. Both me and my students thank you for a job well done.

Last November I begun the Dual Certificate in Chair Yoga and Gentle Senior Yoga. With work, family and Christmas I had to put it to one side until January and all the materials I had read I decided to start again to refresh everything as I was near the end of the anatomy section and really wanted to absorb it all. I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I am LOVING this course the delivery and presentation of it all you really have ticked all the boxes. With your videos I feel I know you more as your personality shines out in each clip. The amount of work you have put into your courses is phenomenal, but you have made it so accessible for a student to learn and you set us up for success. You are my inspiration and hero and I just wanted to say special thank you for this gift of knowledge. I have lots more to finish on the course, and like my favourite lunch I’m savouring every bite.

I give the Yoga Vista Gentle and Chair Yoga courses my highest recommendation! Sherry and Justine have perfected the art of online teaching. The written materials are comprehensive, detailed, and some of the best reference sources in my entire yoga library. The many hours of videos are equally outstanding, offering a variety of teaching styles, methodologies, and information. I expected to receive outstanding instruction in Gentle and Chair Yoga. What I didn’t expect, but received in abundance, was these courses making me a better teacher overall, as well as a better teacher trainer. These courses truly have been a highlight of my ongoing yoga education!

Yoga Vista Academy‘s Chair Yoga Certification Program provided a written PDF to accompany the video presentation which I found beneficial to the student to read and follow as well as a great reference source to keep. I have already referred back to the PDF notes several times. The library of postures is also a good reference source for poses and their unique names. I found the videos to be very helpful especially to see the students go through the asanas to the best of their ability with modifications provided to accommodate each body and level of ability.

This morning, I did your class called “gentle yoga class: extra umpf of ujaii and sun salutation”. I absolutely loved it.
