Roots & River Yoga: Teaching Chair Yoga for Injuries, Chronic Conditions or Aging
December 8, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$35
Often students who could benefit from yoga the most avoid classes because of the risk of falling, having trouble getting up off the floor, or not being “fit enough” to take a public class. Likewise, teachers are often unprepared to spontaneously modify poses or offer substitutions when students with unique mobility needs come into class.
This workshop is designed for yoga teachers and those wanting to enhance their knowledge of creating meaningful and truly accessible yoga practices. Join us to discuss ways to safely instruct students who are affected by injuries, chronic conditions or aging as we explore props, sequencing, verbal cues, and ways to provide pre- and post-class support. As more teachers master these skills, the more teachers and studios alike will be able to safely welcome students of ALL levels to all of their classes.
