Chair Yoga Teacher Trainings

I believe that all bodies, regardless of size, age or physical condition should be able to enjoy the wonderful benefits of yoga. I created this program to offer yoga teachers and wellness professionals the opportunity to do this extremely important work.

About the training:

A 12-hour Yoga Alliance accredited training designed for yoga teachers, and healthcare practitioners, or anyone with students or clients who may have difficulty getting down on the floor due to age, body size, inflexibility or other physical limitations. Chair yoga is also a useful way to incorporate yoga into the classroom or office setting, or any place where sitting or lying on the floor may not be ideal. When we bring our yoga practice off the floor and into a chair, it becomes more accessible, sustainable and easier to integrate into a variety of different settings.

For yoga teachers, healthcare/wellness professionals, classroom teachers, counselors or yoga students. It is highly recommended that participants have at least 15 hours of yoga experience. Participants will receive a training manual and are eligible for Yoga Alliance continuing education credits.

Participants in this training will learn to:

• Effectively plan and teach safe and transformative chair yoga classes

• Creatively adapt yoga poses to fit the needs of the students

• Discern student limitations and identify precautions and contraindications

• Incorporate meditation, breath work, and relaxation techniques into any chair yoga class

• Bring all the joys and benefits of yoga to a wider variety of students/clients

"Yoga has always been for everyone. We as teachers just aren't great at teaching accessibly"

-Matthew Sandford, Founder of Opening Yoga to Everyone adaptive yoga program
