6 NETA CECs
The massive growth in the popularity of yoga as a form of exercise and as a method of maintaining whole-body wellness has led to thousands of published research studies confirming what yoga practitioners already know: Yoga relieves stress, improves mental and emotional health, enhances sleep, relieves low back pain and neck pain, promotes weight loss, and even enables smoking cessation. Further study has proven that yoga helps individuals with disabilities improve their functional activities of daily living, recover from injuries, gain mobility, experience less pain, and manage anxiety and depressive symptoms.
Adaptive Yoga takes these studies out of the research labs and onto the yoga mat to empower individuals with disabilities or chronic health conditions to create an effective and safe yoga practice. If you work with these special populations as a yoga teacher or rehabilitative therapist, you will find guidance and recommended poses for some of the most common conditions and disabilities, including low back pain, arthritis, spinal cord injury, stroke, cerebral palsy, lower limb amputation, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. Includes book, workbook and NETA continuing education exam.

My favorite home study course. I refer to it often in planning my senior yoga classes. Very well written book by knowledgeable professionals. The workbook nicely follows the text book

Best yoga book for working with special populations. Have been using this information in my yoga class for the last year and have noticed a big difference in the flexibility, balance and strength of the members. Book has up to date information and excellent explanations.
