Chair Yoga | HYBRID | 20 hours
Chair Yoga is a great practice for everyone, not just seniors and the less able-bodied, but also for those who would like to learn different ways to enjoy their yoga practice without having to get up and down from the floor: office workers, travellers and those with limited space…and anyone who finds themselves sitting down with 5 minutes to spare. This fun interactive course will provide you with new skills and creative ideas to offer your friends, family or in classes.
This course can be attended as a stand-alone course or as an optional module on our Yoga Alliance accredited 300-hour programme.
Chair Yoga Course Content
We’ll look at ways to make yoga accessible for all, and especially how to incorporate different requirements within one group. We’ll be sitting in a chair, standing and balancing with the aid of a chair and moving around the chair.
- Chairs and props
- Structure and planning
- Warming up
- Adapting asana
- Working with limited mobility
- Modifications for seniors and less able-bodies
- Modifications for those with greater strength and flexibility
- Ideas for office yoga
- Relaxation and Restorative options
There’ll be plenty of opportunity to put it all into practice, with smaller group and breakout room sessions for teaching practice, feedback and discussion.
Dina’s Dynamic Yoga and Mindfulness teachings have evolved over 20 years, grounded in hours of trainings with renowned teachers, and experience working with students from all walks of life: refugees and asylum seekers, dancers from the Royal Ballet, seniors practicing Chair Yoga in Care Homes or festival goers that find her getting her Flow on in a field surrounded by revellers and heavy beats. Now navigating her way through her ’second spring’, she’s finding the rewards of s-lo-w-i-n-g down, tuning in and learning to rest deeply are essential for sanity maintenance in an insane world.
She currently offers open-to-all Chair Yoga classes online, corporate and charity sessions and runs teacher trainings in Flow Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga, Mindfulness and of course Chair Yoga.
