Teaching chair yoga successfully is about more than just learning some the 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 focus on safely adapting familiar hatha yoga poses up from the mat into a seated or fully supported well managed chair yoga practice. A personal investment of additional self-study is encouraged to give yourself time to fully absorb and then offer this amazing 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 Mountain, Warrior II, Forward Fold and others onto a chair.
