Duke Integrative Medicine
Duke Integrative Medicine is offering a unique opportunity for yoga teachers to earn a certificate of completion in Therapeutic Yoga for Seniors. This pioneering eight-day program designed for registered yoga teachers combines the best of modern, evidenced based medicine with the ancient wisdom, experience and tradition of Yogic teachings.

Duke medical experts- physicians, exercise physiologists, physical therapists and health psychologists- will cover health conditions common to seniors, such as heart disease, arthritis and osteoporosis. Experienced yoga therapists will provide hands-on training in appropriately modifying postures for safe an effective work with older adults, with emphasis on those new to yoga. Special issues in teaching elderly students will be addressed, including pain management, spirituality and aging, and fall prevention.
