If you would like to teach yoga to those who may require chair assistance but you’re not sure you feel well enough prepared to do so, this may be the right workshop for you. We will work together to learn how to modify yoga poses with chair support and have plenty of opportunity to practice teaching what we learn in a safe, encouraging and non-judgmental environment. We will examine safety and health considerations and consider how chair assisted yoga meshes with yoga philosophy. The emphasis of this workshop is to help you broaden your teaching skills in a fun and practical way and to give you the confidence and knowledge to provide a service to those in your community who would benefit from Chair Assisted Yoga. 
This expanded workshop also includes the basics of core and back anatomy, importance of core strength in supporting a healthy low back, and how to integrate the techniques into your Chair Assisted yoga lesson plan. We will practice accessing and strengthening deep stabilizing muscles and learn how to build deep core work into a safe and enjoyable practice for your Chair Assisted yogis.
