2015 is racing to its end. As you look back on your accomplishments for the year, there is a question to ask yourself: Did I serve others at the level I envisioned 12 months ago?
Making a resolution to do more for others is common; so why do so many of us fall short of our goals? In the Yoga community, perhaps the reason is because the skills we have are not right for the people we want to serve.
For instance, one of the fastest growing segments of Yoga students are the 50+ crowd. They’ve heard of the benefits of Yoga practice, and even if they are new to Yoga and a physical fitness routine, they come to class full of enthusiasm. And you, the serious Yoga teacher, want to deliver the best experience for them you can.
These older students have unique needs that may not be addressed by traditional Yoga training. They have illnesses and injuries not experienced by younger students. They have psycho-social needs; loneliness, loss and depression are common experiences. With lack of adequate social supports, some feel alienated from the rest of the community.
Yet there is good news for the serious Yoga teacher who wants to give back, especially to this exceptional population.
Amy Kraft of BoomerPlus® Yoga is on a mission to reach those whose heart’s desire is to help those who need support and assistance in keeping their later years active, productive, and healthy. Her full teacher education program equips even the most novice teacher to go out and make a difference in the lives of the Boomer Generation.
The BoomerPlus® full teacher education program is offered on a limited basis presently. February/March 2016 may be the only comprehensive training program offered all year. This one is a wonderful opportunity to be positioned to serve more, give more and help so much more than you did in 2015, by getting the right skills for the people who need your expertise.
The February/March 2016 program takes place over 2 long weekends and it’s being held in Tijuana, Mexico, very close to the San Diego border.
Amy taught her program for Ignacio, Lola and the staff at My Yoga Kids in 2015 and it was a huge success. They had decided to serve more people by expanding their offerings and BoomerPlus® was a good fit, allowing them to deliver health and wellness programs for older adults in Mexico. This year, they are again hosting BoomerPlus® to share what they’ve learned with even more Yoga teachers.
What a wonderful gift this would make: give yourself the gift of serving more, giving more and being more in 2016 and beyond, by attending this life changing training. To find out more about the program, go to: http://boomerplusyoga.com/mexico-2016/ then do whatever it takes to gift yourself to this training in February/March.
