Teaching chair yoga successfully is about more than learning some seated poses and creating a class.  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 information packed, fast paced workshops highlight the value and benefit of adapting familiar hatha yoga poses up from the mat into a safe seated or fully supported, well managed chair yoga practice.  Each also includes options & opportunities to safely broaden scope of practice for varying levels of participation.  A personal investment of some reading and self-study lesson planning is part of the certificate training. 

 

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 Mountain, Warrior II, Forward Fold and others onto a chair.  

$225    8 CECs

Prerequisite:

PART 2 - The opportunity now exists to take inspiration from a wider range of poses. Discover how a second chair provides support and raises the floor. Standing is now an option for safely adapted fully supported poses. This workshop is a continuation of part 1 with concepts and discussion related to material previously covered.
