Seniors & Special Communities


  • Fusion Yoga 6382 West Jefferson Boulevard Fort Wayne, IN, 46804 United States (map)

We all know the benefits of yoga for everyBODY but how do we modify the physical practice, the language we use, and the message based on the community we are serving. Yoga is not one size fits all and it is important that we are able to adapt to create a beneficial practice. Unfortunately, yoga can do more harm than good if we are not aware of triggers for certain people or the progression of the body through aging. Specific communities will be addressed in the module as well as tools to help you prepare a class for any special community.
