How can we make our yoga classes accessible to everyone?
Is it just about chairs and props?
In today’s video episode, Dr Lauren Tober (she/her) is joined by Jivana Heyman (he/him) to talk about how, as Yoga Teachers, we can make yoga more accessible for ourselves and our students.
Jivana is the founder of the Accessible Yoga Association, an international non-profit organization dedicated to increasing access to yoga teachings, and the author of two wonderful books, “Accessible Yoga: Poses & Practices for Every Body” and “Yoga Revolution: Building a Practice of Courage & Compassion”.
He specialises in teaching yoga to people with disabilities with an emphasis on community building and social engagement.
Jivana will be joining us for the next Mental Health and Yoga Summit, starting on the 29th of August 2022, talking more about equity and accessibility in yoga.
The Summit is for Yoga Teachers who are interested in mental health and Mental Health professionals who are interested in yoga, and we do hope you can join us.

MEET OUR FOUNDER
Hi, I'm Dr Lauren Tober!
As a Clinical Psychologist and Yoga Teacher of nearly two decades, I'm passionate about integrating yoga and psychology on the mat, in the counselling room and in the world.
With the growing interest in mental health and yoga, yoga students are attending yoga classes for the mental health benefits in unprecedented numbers.
In fact, 79.4% of yoga students report practicing yoga for the mental health benefits.
It's important that Yoga Teachers know how to support them.
I'm glad you're here.
