YOUR AGE DOESN'T MATTER
Healing Is Possible, Tissue Can Change,
Pain Can Reduce or Eradicate Even If Your Clients Are
Over 50, 60, or 70
You are a yoga teacher, yoga therapist or health professional and you want to be really good and effective at working with your older clientele.
You realize that not all training is equal, and that what you learn and who you learn it from will be vital for your success.
When it comes to learning key skills for working with clients 50, 60 and 70 years old, you want to learn from someone who has more than just experience or knowledge.
You want a teacher who really "gets it".
Someone with time tested experience, who understands that there is so much possible for an older person - that it isn’t doom and gloom, and yet is very much clear on the science, evidence and results of working with older adults.
Someone who can keep it real, without spewing BS, and can be an inspiration.
Someone who practices what they preach because it comes through in their teaching.
You know that science has already shown that a significant amount of symptoms related to aging can be reduced and even reversed.
You want to be that person who can help, to contribute and to make a difference.
With care and skill, you want to help your clients in their 50's, 60's, 70's through the sticky bits, recovering from hip or knee surgery, supporting them with redeveloping or maintaining their balance, supporting them through perimenopause and menopause.
For you it is more than “chair yoga for plus 55 or plus 65”.
You want to help them to optimize their life.
At no other time in life is the demarcation line between ages and stages so unclear.
Not like when we are young, when the developmental markers are more homogenous (when we learn to walk, talk, get teeth, lose baby teeth, gain permanent teeth, puberty . . . and so on).
The physical developmental markers around aging and decline are much more diffuse, stretched out and individualized.
This means if you truly want to have remarkable results with your clients in their 50's, 60's, 70's, you need to be both knowledgeable and be able to meet them where they are at, so you can help maximize their functional movement and enjoyment of life.
You need to have both the fundamental skills to create a therapeutic relationship as well as understanding the biological and physiological realities of getting older.
I have a B.Sc. Kinesiology and I have been helping my clients out of pain for almost 30 years.
Two of my programs have been studied at a University level.
From the start of my yoga teaching career, most of my clients were older than me.
Many were older than 60 and a good number were over 70.
It became clear early on that the older the person was, the faster they became more functional, and got out of pain.
Yes, you read that correctly.
My older clients consistently reduced their pain and got back to the lives they wanted faster than my younger clients.
Even when recovering from hip or knee replacement surgery.

IT OFTEN BEGINS WITH AN "UM... SUSI... DO YOU TALK ABOUT PAINFUL SEX?"
The answer is . . . . "yes".
So many people believe that pain with sex is an expected reality for those going through menopause.
And it makes sense that this belief exists.
Many people ask their doctors for solutions and are told to relax, have a glass of wine, to chill out.
Not. Super. Helpful.
I am here to say that pain with sex doesn't have to be your reality.
This a 9 hour program with 3 Medical Doctors, Ayurveda Specialist and Pelvic Health Therapist.
You will learn:
* LIFETIME ACCESS
*PURCHASE ONCE, AND YOU WILL GET ALL THE UPDATES FOR A LIFETIME.
