Add a new dimension to your clients’ workouts with yoga

As yoga, breathwork and mindfulness grow in popularity, the transformative power of these practices should not be overlooked. By incorporating yoga into your sessions and focusing on flexibility, balance and mindfulness, you can help clients improve results, reduce the risk of injuries and enhance overall performance.

This course will show you how to integrate yoga, breath and mindfulness practices into your current repertoire. Learn the fundamentals of yoga including anatomy, poses and breathing techniques. In addition, develop skills to create a safe space for clients of all backgrounds by exploring trauma-informed yoga.

Led by Araceli De Leon, M.S., certified 500-hour registered yoga teacher, you’ll feel confident taking a client-focused approach to yoga and have invaluable tools to elevate your client experiences and enhance your offerings. Please note, while this course will provide information and helpful ways to include yoga in your scope of practice, it will not earn you credits through Yoga Alliance if you are a registered yoga teacher and it is not an accredited teacher training.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Understand essential knowledge around yoga postures and breathing techniques and how it can optimize your clients’ physical and mental performance
  • Effectively add yoga practices into your current health and fitness offerings for clients of various backgrounds
  • Create safe and supportive environments for clients by utilizing mindful and neutral language
  • Add mindful movement and breathwork into your own practices

One of the better 1 hour courses I've taken as it integrates practical movement during the session. To the person who criticized the speaker for her pronounciation of a few words being "informal" or "unprofessional", I must say I disagree. I come from a country where English isn't our first language and she was completely clear and coherent in my opinion. The lesson was simple and I cannot wait to apply what I've learned. Bravo.

I am interested in learning more about yoga and this gave me a great introduction.

Very informative content. The course was presented well, it was interesting and informative.

I believe Araceli is possibly a magnificent instructor as evidenced by her immediate connection and educated response during the Q&A at the end of the video. During those moments, her entire demeanor softened and I could see her bringing forward her years of experience in the field. I would have liked to have seen that during the video, and am greatful I stayed to the end of the brief Q&A. A few elements she may want to look at are 1)Removing the hard glottal pronunciation within a word's syllables, i.e. "cer-ant" (certain), "impor-ant" (important) which may be a current anunciation, but not what one would consider to be a refined, professional use of the English language as one would anticipate in an educational video. 2) In the objecctives, consider removing the word "you" and replacing it with "one", making the objective less personal, less of a command, but more of an expectation/anticipation of what one will learn. I really enjoyed the content, and unfortunately found these two elements a bit distrating. That said, thank you Araceli for sharing your wisdom! I feel more confident in the application of yoga into my fitness professional practice!
