Course Description

This ten-day course teaches you to adapt the Integral Yoga® practices to meet the needs of any individual. You will explore the essential benefits of each asana and determine how to best implement them without strain—regardless of your students’ physical, mental, or emotional conditions.

This training explores:

  • Adaptations of asanas (postures)
  • Chair Yoga (helpful for students with limited mobility or space)
  • Gentle warm-ups and stretches
  • Safe and effective prop use

Adaptive Yoga gives us the tools to reach various populations that may not have had access to the benefits of Hatha Yoga. In addition to Yoga studios, Adaptive Yoga classes can be offered in senior centers, rehabilitation facilities, recreation centers, hospitals, churches, and community centers.

An Adaptive Yoga class provides all the benefits of the basic Integral Yoga class at the level that the individual student is capable of practicing. You will learn to create safe, comfortable Yoga sessions and study how to accommodate people with limited mobility, students in private classes, and practitioners of various levels in group classes.

Testimonials

The program exceeded my expectations! I learned so much more than how to adapt asanas. The experience of fully being immersed in living yoga was so beneficial. Satya set aside time to call me and talk to me about the program, making me feel secure in my abilities and expectations during the training. I felt she held space for all of us and our different abilities, practice, and spirituality. — Sharon Monaccio

Satya Greenstone has a great depth of experience and knowledge. She brings it to every pose she teaches and provides a variety of approaches to make each pose accessible to anyone. She also provides an abundance of supportive material to underpin the lessons. I would unhesitatingly recommend any class she teaches. — Donna Sturm

Satya Greenstone is highly knowledgeable and experienced in all realms of yoga and yoga instruction. She is also compassionate, sensitive and encouraging so that her teaching inspires continued practice and curiosity regarding yoga and personal health. — Leonora Weimer

Satya Greenstone

Satya Greenstone has been a student of Sri Swami Satchidananda since 1971. She has shared the teachings of Integral Yoga® in many diverse settings with students of all ages and backgrounds and combines a natural, practical, down-to-earth approach to Yoga with a gentle humor. Since 1999 she has been a primary teacher for the 200-hour and the Intermediate Integral Yoga Teacher Training programs. While serving as teacher training coordinator, she helped to develop and teach the first Gentle Yoga Teacher Training program. She has also developed and teaches training programs in Restorative Yoga, Adaptive Yoga, and Yoga and Meditation for Children. In 2005, she received certification in Therapeutic Yoga and is currently certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). She also is certified in Yoga for the Heart and Yoga for Osteoporosis.

She gently adapts the Yoga practices to individual needs and always finds a way to encourage and inspire her students who soon recognize that, for her, Yoga is an experience, not a subject for academic study. First and foremost she is a yogini, and her teaching is an extension of the experience gained from her Yoga practice. Satya exudes the joy and exemplifies the benefits that come from living the yogic lifestyle and she shares that joy and those benefits with her students.

Always thankful to her Guru Swami Satchidananda, Satya believes that he has created the perfect environment in which to practice Yoga and experience the peace of one’s true nature. It is that personal recognition of one’s true Self that she tries to facilitate in every program.
