Teaching chair yoga successfully is about more than just learning some the poses.  It's also about understanding its nuances and subtleties to ensure a truly safe, always stable, completely accessible practice. It's about recognizing the physical and sometimes emotional needs of the participants. It's about creating a positive experience and space that offers the greatest opportunity for success. These fast paced workshops focus on safely adapting familiar hatha yoga poses up from the mat and onto a chair (part 1) or beside/with a second chair (part 2).


A personal investment of additional self-study time is recommended to fully absorb and then offer this style to your students. 


PART 1 - Learn about the special populations that may attend, and how to ensure a safe, inclusive experience, suitable for a wide range of individuals. Discover the benefits and risks of transitioning familiar mat poses such as a seated Mountain, Warrior II, Forward Fold and others onto a chair. Compose and then practice teaching sequences readying yourself for presenting a well planned, seated chair yoga program to your students.
