Warm Water Yoga Teacher Training Certification

Schaff Yoga Therapy’s 40-hour Warm Water Yoga Training Program is registered with International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and recognized by the Arthritis Foundation as a recommended therapeutic modality.  It takes place in Rhinebeck, New York from November 10 th – November 16 th . This is the only Warm Water Yoga Teacher Training Program we are offering this year.

Led by IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist Terry Roth Schaff, this training program will teach you how to make yoga accessible to people with physical and neurological conditions. It is designed to help improve balance, range of motion, coordination and mobility while cultivating a peaceful state of mind. You will learn yoga poses and sequences in the water that increase cardio-vascular circulation, open up restricted joints, stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak ones, and breath work and relaxation exercises to soothe the nervous system, while helping the participants to feel grounded, rejuvenated, and refreshed. Terry will show you how to set up a Warm Water Yoga program in your community.

Becoming a certified Warm Water Yoga instructor will give you the opportunity to teach yoga to people who may no longer be able to have an active yoga practice on land, and to people with special needs in a safe and supportive environment.

For certification you must already hold a 200-hour certification as a yoga instructor, with a minimum of three years teaching experience and at least 450 yoga teaching hours. We also ask that you have completed CPR within the last 12 months and be a confident and experienced swimmer.

In this workshop we review the 12 poses in Dr. Fishman’s “Yoga for Osteoporosis” study, and we will teach you a second group of bone-building poses to add into your practice. You will learn new poses to improve your balance, and to stress the bones in your spine, hips, wrists and arms.

The size of this workshop is limited so we ask that you sign up early if you want to participate. You will be officially enrolled upon receipt of your payment. You can pay for this workshop by check or by credit card via PayPal.  If you have to cancel your reservation we will give you a credit towards a future Schaff Yoga Therapy workshop or private yoga therapy session in person or on Skype.
