The Wise Ones Program - Inspired Independence for the Healthy Adult
With Julie Hanson, Sue Woodd
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.
We need to mention here that is not Yoga, this course is designed to learn a non floor access to movement using the ancient tried and tested practices of Chi Gung, we do talk about Yoga for the young old age group but the training is mostly teaching you the skills to run a Body Clock Flow. safe and accessible class for the Wise ones !
As well as the face to face teaching you'll have access to 25 online professional reference videos for you to refer to.

Testimonial from June 19 course I personally loved the course and it will greatly benefit people with weight issues and mobility issues in my community. Julie and Sue are really relatable and down to earth and have many years of knowledge. It kind of helps that they and I are ladies who are of a certain age and show a real depth of understanding to problems that come up as we age. This course is for every body (pun intended) as it’s a great addition to the toolbox of yoga teachers but it also allows the teacher to give their bodies a break from power/ hot/vinyasa flow classes. Would highly recommend. Cheryl ( Ageing Seasonal Yoga Teacher)
I would recommend anyone interested in supporting members of our ageing population to maintain wellbeing and dignity to take this course without delay. For those seeking ways to maintain independence longer into old age and enjoy a better quality of life in the meantime, Wise Ones offers many ways to regain and retain some control in life. It's wonderful, see for yourself. R Fedorko.
The wise ones is a fabulous concept and is very much needed in our society these days. I found the course informative and interesting and I cant wait to get started teaching some classes in my local community. The balance of theory and practical was well thought out and the trainers were both excellent in their delivery. I’d highly recommend the course to anyone considering doing it. Thanks for a wonderful weekend Julie and Sue, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Claire O’Brien xx
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
