Chair Yoga is a unique yoga style that adapts yoga positions and poses through creative use of a chair. The chair replaces the yoga mat and becomes an extension of the body. The student is able to warm up the body safely and perform yoga poses with more support and stability. Poses are done seated on the chair or the chair is used for support during standing poses, forward and backward bends, side extensions, balancing, and leg and arm stretches. Chair Yoga is suitable for all ages, fitness levels and physical conditions.
The course is particularly useful for yoga teachers, classroom teachers, PT's, OT's, and other healthcare professionals. This form of yoga is ideal for school children to practice right at their desk without yoga mats or other props. This program will add a new dimension to your teaching and/or care-giving.
