Chair yoga is not just for seniors any more! Medical professionals often assign chair yoga to seniors and deconditioned or injured patients as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program. This session will show you the many ways a chair can add variety and challenge to anyone’s Hatha Yoga practice.
Rethink the power of the chair as a viable resistance tool in this day long workshop. After this session attendees will better understand how a chair helps change the way force and motion affect the skeletal system. Students will also better understand the joints and the muscular system.
Learn how to properly cue a chair yoga class and how to assess students with special needs.
This workshop includes time in the classroom, work in small groups, and time in the studio. Students will put into practice the things they have learned in the classroom.
