In 2017, Canada’s Seniors officially outnumbered children.
With no signs of this trend abating any time soon, learning to teach yoga to our Seniors safely and mindfully is becoming an increasingly important skill in the yoga teaching world.
As our population ages steadfastly, understanding the common physical and mental issues and having the qualifications to teach yoga to this large segment of our population will provide yoga teachers with a unique and very rewarding niche.
