Yoga Teachers Workshop: Accessible Chair Yoga

Teaching Accessible Chair Yoga

Saturday 30th September 2023 10:00-17:00
ONLINE on Zoom | Map

This will be offered as a livestream via ZOOM .

This course will provide you with new skills and creative ideas to offer to your friends, family or in classes. It’s a great practice for everyone, not just seniors and the less able-bodied, but also  those who  would like to learn different ways to enjoy their yoga practice without a mat: travellers, office workers…and anyone who finds themselves sitting down with 5 minutes to spare.

Yoga Teachers who might like incorporate the use of the chair in their mat-based classes will find this training particularly helpful as we look at teaching both mat-based and chair-based practices simultaneously during the live day.

There will be plenty of opportunity for  teaching practice, as well as questions and discussion of common conditions and age-related health issues.

There will be one full day of Live training
ONLINE: 30th September 2023 10:00-17:00
IN PERSON: 9th March 2024 10:00-17:00 at The Shala, London
