Chair Yoga Certification
Jul 6, 2019 - Jul 7, 2019
 
This 20 hour certification will provide yoga teachers as well as health practitioners or individuals involved in senior fitness activities with a strong understanding of Chair Yoga: theory and practice. Participants will gain the skills required to bring yoga to students who might otherwise not be able to embrace a practice. (For those that are eligible RYT teachers, the 20 hours qualify for your continuing education credits.)
Along with the meditation, breathing, and relaxation techniques, you will learn how to adapt the classical Yoga asanas to the chair rather than the floor in a therapeutic context. Material is offered for students of a variety of skill levels and circumstances, but the emphasis is for mature adults and those with physical limitations that need a chair to make yoga accessible. The course reviews the physical limitations and problems that interfere with a traditional mat practice, helping a teacher understand the goals and benefits of chair yoga, while establishing a toolbox of postures and sequences for future classes. An anatomy segment focuses on deteriorating joints and common issues that senior clientele may be dealing with, such as HBP, Osteoporosis, Glycaemia, wrist weakness and loss of balance

A small portion of the seminar is devoted to more advanced yoga practice techniques to
explore how a chair can be incorporated into a traditional practice, geared toward fully-capable yogis, for the purposes of variety and new skill challenges or restorative yoga.

Since the circumstances (and thus the chairs) may vary for different teaching situations, we make available and encourage the attendees to explore different chairs, including wheelchairs, office chairs, balance balls, and traditional yoga chairs. A certificate in chair yoga is provided at the end of the course.

This mature demographic is more active and health conscientious than previous generations, and receptive to the recommendation of yoga as a path to wellness by health care professionals. The need for yoga teachers with training and sensitivity to the special needs of aging bodies is growing. and older teachers are often a source of great inspiration to their peers as role models.

This RYT-200 training is designed for those who are older, with an towards teaching students age 50 plus. This course includes all the material required for national certification so our trainees can teach all ages and levels once we complete the material, but we will emphasize the special needs and considerations of mature bodies and the daily practices we participate in will lean towards softer, gentle classes appropriate for teacher in trainees that do not want to stress their bodies with advanced postures, inversions or physically taxing material that they are unlikely to use when they teach their own demographic.

The program includes Chair yoga certification (rather than aerial) , Reiki 1 and 20 classes to support your journey. Each session begins with a gentle, inspirational yoga class, a followed by our RYT studies that explore the 8 limbs of yoga with anatomy, alignment, posture focus, and methodology, energy studies, yoga philosophy and more. Reiki level 1, journaling and all requirements for yoga alliance certification are included, All participants should be 50 or older, or have physical considerations that make this the best training for them and their goals as a teacher.

Come prepared to have a wonderful time, get in shape (inside and out) and enjoy the inspirational and beautiful facility of Heartwood Retreat Center.
