The Wise Ones Program - Inspired Independence for the Healthy Adult
With Julie Hanson, Sue Woodd & Marit Akintewe
The Wise Ones, the healthy 60-80 year olds, population is increasing and it's the wealthiest and most active generation in history. They have longer in retirement and higher expectations in staying healthy and active. The population of those 65+ in the UK is projected to rise from 10million in 2010 to 17million by 2039 and their spending power is expected to rise from £79bn to £127bn by 2030. This means that this is a growing market that will be seeking exercise forms such as yoga to stay healthy, active and mobile in order to maintain their independence for as long as possible.
This course will explore how to work with this older population. We will work in 3 sections, Young Old, Old, and Old Old, showing appropriate practices for each age group and advice for how to adapt the practices to meet the needs of each group. The training will give you the tools to help you feel confident about teaching this growing population.
As well as the face to face teaching you'll have access to 25 online professional reference videos for you to refer to.

Testimonials from June 18 course
This is a really significant and unique training that opens up tremendous possibilities to teach yoga to the Wise Ones age groups, as well as incorporate aspects into regular classes. It really does mean that yoga can be for everyone and no age group need feel excluded - Michael Gill
An enjoyable and very thorough course with lots of information covering all the things you'd need to know for teaching yoga to elderly people, from practical to legal. Handouts and website a brilliant bonus so as you don't have to spend time writing notes. - Morag
