Chair Yoga Teacher Workshop with Jane Musgrave
Saturday September 9th 1:00p – 7:00p

chair yoga teacher workshopIt’s not just for older adults anymore! If you think creatively, you can adapt nearly any traditional yoga pose for the chair, and in multiple ways.

This 6-hour workshop will cover core principles to consider when teaching chair yoga to anyone. In addition, we’ll review common health conditions, goals of the practice, setup and sequencing, asana, pranayama and meditation options for:

  • Older adults
  • Students with injuries or chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and MS
  • Students who predominantly use wheelchairs
  • Office workers and other groups of workers

You will learn to smartly structure mixed chair and mat classes as well. We’ll also learn a more dynamic, vinyasa style of chair yoga that uses the chair as a seat and a prop to make a flowing, cardiovascularly-challenging class accessible without having to get to the floor.
