Opening new teaching opportunities for you and bringing the benefits of yoga to more people

This professional development training for Yoga Teachers and professionals working in care settings will give you the basic skills to run chair yoga classes or integrate chair yoga into your regular teaching or care setting.

These skills can also be applied in numerous settings, such as active retirement groups, wheelchair users, community groups, people with special needs and for people with limited movement due to health, injury or recovery from surgery.

Who’s it for?

This training is open to all who work professionally with people who complex or limited mobility needs., or who work in a setting where space is limited and sitting in chairs forms a large part of the daily routine (e.g. schools, offices).

It may be especially helpful as professional development for:

  • Healthcare Professionals
  • Yoga Teachers
  • Yoga Therapists
  • Care-workers
  • Physical Therapists
  • Teachers in primary or secondary schools
  • therapists and health workers who would like to include a body-based practice into their work.

This training will give you skills to teach a specific chair yoga class, and also get you thinking about how you can adjust or integrate some of these adjustments into a regular yoga class.

Chair yoga is often thought of as “yoga for old people”. However, the audience for chair yoga is much wider. have a look at the list below and see how many others you can add to it.

Bring Yoga to a larger audience?

  • Wheelchair yoga
  • Ageing Population e.g. Organisation, Clubs & Nursing Homes
  • Injured & Recovering Populations, e.g. Rehabilitation Centers
  • The Office workers
  • The Professional Drivers – Taxi, Long hall, Driving instructions
  • Specific industries with restricted movement during work – eg. Airline Staff

What is chair yoga really about?

Chair yoga is firstly about understanding the tools of yoga; asana, pranayama, and meditation form the perspective of what the effects of each are, and what is actually needed to be able to achieve that effect.

Secondly, it is about understanding anatomy and physiology, from the perspective of what is necessary, beneficial and restrictive to be able to live a healthy life.

Finally, it is about having the imagination to keep the core aspects, drop the unnecessary and find ways to adjust the asana or the environment to make it safe and useful to the student.

Topics we will cover

  • getting clear who your student is – what their properties are, what their mobility limitations are
  • knowing the difference between Yoga and Yoga Therapy (This is Yoga Teacher Training, not Yoga therapy)
  • inclusive & trauma-sensitive approach to sharing yoga
  • a journey through the body
