CPD Masterclass: Making classes accessible - access now

31 December, 2024
(Registration open till December 2024)

Post graduate masterclass with Noelene Francis

Online—or in your time

$77 for DPN members;  $110 for non-DPN members

Special Masterclass series for Dru graduates!  Recorded in March 2023.

Join Noelene to explore the whole concept of accessible yoga and meditation classes - whether we are catering to older people, or people with physical limitations, or disadvantage. 

As you know Dru Yoga's foundation is therapeutic and we learn many modifications in our training. For this reason in our experience Dru also one of the safest forms of yoga out there, especially for the increasing cohort of people who are taking up yoga in their older years. 

In this workshop, we'll explore the key principles of how to modify practices to cater for people of different ages and abilities or limitations.

We'll also cover considerations for: 

  • teaching a class of mixed abilities or goals for their yoga
  • teaching a group that includes people of several different life stages
  • the language of inclusion
  • reaching out to those who may be excluded. 

The masterclass will

  • Add to what you have learned in your teacher training for both yoga and meditation, and
  • Deepen your understanding of modification, and what you can achieve in your own practice. 

Suitable for Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation graduates. You will accrue 2  Continuing Professional Development points for viewing this masterclass.

Dru Meditation enables you to bring your practice to the next level, leaves you feeling light and gives you a way forward.

I would thoroughly recommend the APD to anyone that is considering doing it.
I have benefitted enormously from it.
I did the course during the covid pandemic lockdown. A time of anxiety and fear. The knowledge that I gained helped me to recognise and acknowledge my feelings and gave me tools to deal with them.
The yoga postures , sequences and breathing techniques that are already familiar can be used to change our emotional energy.
In the same way that we have learnt to scan our physical body for aches and pains and stiffness or injury and use yoga postures and stretches to ease ourselves , I have learnt to scan my emotional and energetic body and recognise negative thoughts and patterns and how to correct them. By doing this regularly I feel more self-confident and happy .
I remember a very powerful moment when we were doing the Eagle posture and imagining that we were looking down at ourselves and what we perceived. I thought ‘ I am cool ‘ ! That thought has stayed with me.

This course has really changed me. I feel more confident and it has started me on a much more spiritual path in life. My self-esteem has improved and continues to with each module. 
Dru Yoga is very special, beautiful and powerful on all levels
