Teaching Progressive Chair Yoga

Whether you are a new teacher looking to add this “star prop” as an accessory or an experienced teacher looking to uplift your capacity and reach a broader population, adding the chair to your classes will engage your students and enhance your yoga offerings. Teaching a yoga class with a chair opens up more space and awareness for alignment, balance, and strength to develop in the body. With a chair, students of all abilities will be able to experience and observe without judgment the ease of mindful postural toning and steadiness of the breath.

In this 4-week course, we will view the broad spectrum of variations with the chair. Students with health challenges, limited mobility, or special needs will benefit.
Adaptations for age-related chronic health conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and cardio-respiratory, and musculoskeletal issues will be explored.
We will also explore how to achieve deeper postures safely for students who are progressing in their practice. You as a teacher will build consistency, commitment, and repetition in your classroom as the use of the chair creates integration, awareness, and actualization of the yoga.

Teachers as well as students are welcome to attend this class. You will need a sturdy chair without arms!
