Proposal for Teaching Plus Size Yoga

Course description
Teaching Plus Size Yoga is based on the principles of Gentle Yoga with Naomi® developed by Naomi Judith in 1982. The goal is to make the healthful, calming, rejuvenating movements of yoga accessible to anyone, of any size, at any age. Additionally, the trademarked techniques offer a simple approach to vibrant health and permanent weight management. Teaching Plus Size Yoga is geared to the yoga instructor who wants to have an effective method for teaching the plus size students in their class or to teach only plus size students.

I found the Gentle Yoga teacher training to be effective and enjoyable. I learned how the mental aspect in addition to the physical aspect is essential to successful weight loss. Now, I can add these new elements when I teach yoga to my students who may have specific health or weight challenges. - Sue Berry, Lakeside, CA

I have a useful addition to my 200 hours, which will help me to teach plus size students in my class and more sensitive to their needs. - Jordana Carroll, Las Vegas, NV
