For anyone interested in learning or teaching Chair Yoga classes. Including Certified Yoga Teachers, Teachers in Training, Health Care Professionals and Yoga Practitioners looking to expand their practice. You do not need to be a Yoga Teacher to become a Foundations of Chair Yoga Certified Teacher. We do request a minimum of 20 hours yoga experience.
In this program, Tracey will add a new dimension to your teaching and/or caregiving. The teacher certification will provide you with a firm foundation for teaching The Foundations of Chair Yoga.
Along with the normal meditation, breathing, and relaxation techniques, you will learn how to adapt the classical Yoga asanas to the chair. You will explore chair asanas such as:
- Sun salutation
- Moon salutation
- Warrior series
- Classical balance postures
- The contra-indications of each chair asana
In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the chair asanas for:
- Double chair yoga (each student uses two chairs)
- Partner chair yoga (two students—each on their own chair, working together as partners)
- Weighted chair yoga (each student employs appropriate weights for chair yoga)
Tracey will also cover additional Eastern disciplines and modalities, as part of the program. Some examples include…
- Matrika Shakti – Power of the Word
- Hand movements for arthritis relief
- Acupressure knee strengthening exercises
- Various breathing techniques for meditation, relaxation, and asanas
