Successfully teaching chair yoga is 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. Focus on safely adapting 40+ familiar hatha yoga poses such as Mountain, Warrior II, Downward Facing Dog and Tree up from the mat and onto or beside the chair. Understand the various demographics that benefit from this style of yoga. Compose and practice sequences with stability and modifications ultimately creating a well rounded, fully inclusive class. A personal investment of a few additional hours of self-study/skills practice time is recommended.
