We are dedicated to Accessibility, meaning we believe in making classes as inclusive as possible for each and every student.
This is why we promote the global non-profit organization known as Accessible Yoga.
Accessible Yoga is dedicated to sharing the benefits of Yoga with anyone who currently does not have access to these practices, and with communities that have been excluded or under served. All people, regardless of ability or background, deserve equal access to the ancient teachings of Yoga, which offer individual empowerment and spiritual awakening. By building a strong network and advocating for a diverse Yoga culture that is inclusive and welcoming, we are sharing Yoga with all.
We require all programs to take a mandatory course with either Dianne Bondy or Jivana Heyman. This year, there is an opportunity to study with both under the same roof at the Accessible Yoga Conference this June 22-24, 2018!
We have built in Accessible Yoga Training with Jivana Heyman into all our 2018 certificate programs. If you have already taken his course, or certified with Dianne Bondy’s Yoga for All course, you are given advanced placement.
The Accessible Yoga Training runs June 18-21 at Victoria University (UofT).
