Join yoga instructor Stacey Lubets for a 11.5 hour chair yoga training.
This three day training is designed for yoga teachers and health & wellness professionals with students or clients who may have difficulty with floor-based yoga poses due to age, body size, inflexibility or other physical limitations. Chair yoga is also a useful way to incorporate yoga into the classroom or office setting. When we bring our yoga practice off the floor and into a chair, it becomes more accessible, sustainable and easier to integrate into a variety of different settings.
Participants in this training will learn to:
• Effectively plan and teach safe and transformative chair yoga classes
• Creatively adapt yoga poses to fit the needs of the students
• Discern student limitations and identify precautions and contraindications
• Incorporate meditation, breath work and relaxation techniques into any chair yoga class
• Bring all the joys and benefits of yoga to a wider variety of students/clients
This workshop is fully accredited by Yoga Alliance and 11 CEU’s are available to participants. In addition, each participant will receive a training manual and certificate of completion. It is recommended that workshop participants have at least 20 hours of yoga experience to attend this training.
Over the past several years I have taught hundreds of chair yoga classes to students of all ages and physical abilities. I have taught yoga at senior centers, yoga studios, fitness centers, rehab hospitals, eating disorder programs, and more. The ability to know how to teach yoga using a chair has been a game-changer for me. Even in my traditional yoga classes, I often have students who are simply not comfortable sitting or kneeling on the floor, despite having blocks, bolsters, blankets, and other supportive props. I came to realize that there is a definite need for more accessible yoga classes, but unfortunately not much available in terms of teacher instruction. I developed this Chair Yoga training in order to share my knowledge and experience, and to make yoga more accessible to all bodies.
