SUCCESSFULLY TEACHING CHAIR YOGA IS ABOUT MORE THAN JUST KNOWING THE POSES.
It's also about understanding the nuances and subtleties of this style 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.
