Chair Yoga Workshop

  • Fit Columbia 2002 Blossom Street Columbia, SC, 29205 United States (map)

Workshop Description:
It is often challenging to find safe and grounded practices for students with mobility or balance issues. In a traditional asana class, our typical starting point is standing, kneeling, or lying on a mat on the floor. Chair Yoga utilizes the same mind-body principles as mat practice but from the safety of a chair. Join Carey Sims for a workshop exploring the benefits of Chair Yoga. Learn how to offer your students grounding, spinal awareness, strength building, and ease in the body and breath through Chair Yoga.

What to expect:
- Practice Chair Yoga each day
- Explore ways to adapt asanas and breath work to make them accessible
- Discuss theming, cueing, and ways to approach your Chair Yoga classes
- Deconstruct asanas and discover how to get creative with postural modifications
- Learn from and share with your peers through small group teaching
- A handout with sequencing ideas, an overview of discussion points, and visual references for postures
