Nov 7, 2014 - Nov 9, 2014

| $310 – $340

Event Navigation


The 50 to 70-year old age group, one of the fastest-growing populations in this country, is increasingly turning to yoga to help with the challenges that aging can bring. While this represents a great opportunity for yoga instructors, teaching this age group can also present challenges not encountered in classes with younger students.

Instructor Sally Carley will provide teachers with the specific skills to teach asana to this population with confidence, as well as techniques to support mind and spirit in aging, through the teachings of yoga. Interactive work with 50+ students will provide hands-on opportunities to practice appropriate sequencing and adjustments.

This 18-hour training is for certified yoga teachers and healthcare practitioners interested in deepening their awareness and experience to serve people in this amazing time of life. Training cost includes observation of one 6-class Yoga for 50+ series with Sally Carley at 8 Limbs Capitol Hill or West Seattle. To sign up for your class observation series visit the Yoga for 50+ page on the 8 Limbs yoga website for dates and email sally@8limbsyoga.com with your first three choices of date and location after you have registered. You may choose to take your observation classes prior to the training, or after, through June 2015.

While this is not a certification training (Yoga Alliance has not yet set requirements), these hours can count toward completion of the 8 Limbs 500-hour Teacher Training for enrollees. For more information on enrollment (prior to training), click here.

About the teacher:

Sally Carley began practicing yoga in her mid-forties at 8 Limbs on Capitol Hill. In yoga she found healing from a traumatic injury, and an opening to connection that was completely unexpected but gratefully received. She attended 8 Limbs’ 200-hour teacher training, and then Samarya Center’s, and began teaching students of all ages, as she continues to do today. It became clear that teaching students in mid-life how to benefit from the support and joys that yoga provides, would be her life’s work. Sally took trainings in Integrated Movement Therapy at The Samarya Center, which opened her to an understanding that yoga can offer support for all people, including those encountering the challenges of aging.

A member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists, Sally has learned her craft at conventions and trainings with many of the top yoga therapists in the country, as well as many nationally known Hatha Yoga teachers. Her teaching reflects a blending of the work of them all.

Sally pioneered the Yoga for 50+ series classes at 8 Limbs when it because clear to her that people in this age group were under the mistaken impression that yoga was for only young, fit, flexible people. She has taught Yoga for 50+ for since 2007 at two 8 Limbs studios, and regularly teaches privately to students who want a more personalized practice, as well as to students who need more support than those classes can provide.

Sally’s core belief about teaching this population is that people between 50 and 70 already know what they need. They have been in these bodies for a long time, and just need support and guidance in learning how to trust themselves enough to take advantage of the gift of yoga. A lightness of heart suffuses her teaching, and her classes are known for offering students the opportunity to learn yogic principles as well as yoga poses, in a fun, accessible way.

Training cost:

The cost of the training including the observation Classes is $310 through October 1, and $340 after that.
