Our Chair Yoga course will provide you with the necessary tools to guide the elderly or less-abled towards maintaining a degree of exercise and movement and helping to slow down deterioration in older age.

You will become increasingly confident in making a difference to the lives of those who experience difficulty taking part in traditional yoga classes. Your knowledge in creating the optimum environment for classes to become engaging, interactive and supportive will evolve. You will also learn anti-rheumatic methods to help release tension in the limbs and relax muscular tension in the joints

Topic Summary:

Please note the course outline is provided as a guide on what to expect throughout the experience. The one-day intensive course will focus on the many ways you can evolve your yoga practice to become available for a wider community with varying levels of mobility.

You will learn how to structure and plan a yoga session for adults with physical restrictions and implement the necessary tools to teach people with learning difficulties. These skills can be integrated into a class or taught as a one to one session. You will observe how props such as chairs, blocks, bolsters and belts can enhance the quality of the physical practice, and how specific practices can be introduced effectively. Having completed this course you will have the capacity to encourage a person with limited mobility to explore their potential in becoming physically, emotionally and psychologically
stronger.

Teaching Style:

Practical solutions to demonstrate how movements and postures can be adjusted and used to become accessible for students who are elderly or less-abled are the primary focus throughout the day. The course tutor will frequently engage you in an experiential series of coordinated sequences using props and hands on assistance for a flexible and adaptable teaching approach.
