Chair Yoga Teacher Training
June 6 & 7, 2020
Learn the rewarding and beneficial work of teaching creative, safe, and appropriate chair yoga classes, including:
Often people come to Chair Yoga classes because they have mobility issues, as well as conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, joint replacements, stiffness and other often age-related or chronic medical conditions. For so many, yoga is new to them. Time and time again, participants are amazed at how the yoga makes them feel in their bodies – they notice more mobility and relaxation after just one session.
Chair Yoga is an appropriate practice for anyone needing a gentle approach to yoga, as well as the support of a chair.
This training focuses on teaching chair yoga classes, as well as classes that combine both chair and mat yoga classes. You will learn how to teach people with different levels of mobility and health issues in an inclusive and safe way.
We will focus on age-appropriate movement, for the aging body, as well as taking into consideration what may be going on mentally and emotionally as we age. We will discuss in detail the most common health issues we see among students who attend senior / chair yoga classes, including high blood pressure, Parkinson’s Disease, previous stroke, joint replacement, partial hearing and sight loss, arthritis, osteoporosis and poor balance.
