I once had a yoga student with a prosthetic leg. I didn’t realize until I attempted to push her heel to the floor in Downward Dog. I assumed that she wanted to simply blend into class and that’s why she hadn’t told me (or anyone at reception) before joining class.
I’ve since had students with birth defects, different length legs, missing limbs, traumatic brain injuries, and scoliosis among other things. Historically, yoga studios are not known for their diversity - but that’s changing fast. Bigger bodied, older, and more diverse students are gaining interest in yoga each year.
On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a teacher who focuses specifically on addressing the needs of a more diverse (in every way) yoga community.
