Dynamic Gentle Yoga Teacher Certification
Accessible, Inclusive, Stimulating and Empowering. Leading an excellent Gentle Yoga class requires refined yoga teaching skills.
Uplevel your skills and join Rudy in the Dynamic Gentle Yoga Teacher Certification program. Learn the subtleties, strategies, science and skills needed for the fastest growing segment of practitioners – older students, 50 years old and up, 14 million in 2016 up from 4 million in 2012*.
Learn how to lead a Dynamic Gentle Yoga class that isn’t merely yoga made easier, but rather, offers dynamic movement into poses that meet students where their ability is, keeps them in a safe range of motion, while still challenging them with coordinated breathing techniques and a constant focus on subtle detail. Make all the benefits of yoga accessible to our elders with less flexible bodies.
This Certification Training will set you apart as a dedicated specialist with advanced training in the methods needed to meet the needs and expectations of students looking for a slower, kinder, clearly instructed practice; the methods needed to make your Gentle Yoga class accessible, inclusive, stimulating and empowering.
This 60-hour training is offered in a weekend format of four 15-hour modules. Your certification can consist of any four modules which are offered at several locations (see below).
Learn from Kripalu’s Senior Teacher Trainer, Rudy Peirce, who comes with over three decades of experience leading Gentle Yoga classes, training teachers and continuing his own education and training in this evolving field.

Furthermore, Gentle Yoga is not just for seniors anymore. The “Wellness” teacher for a Massachusetts high school leads yoga classes all day, all week. Her students regularly request the slow restorative gentle yoga over the fast, work-out yoga style.
