What you'll learn in this teacher training course:

Learn to offer a complete yoga class in a chair, ideal for seniors, those with limited mobility and office workers looking to refresh during the day. Our society is ageing and there are many people unable to practice a standard yoga class. Ageing can bring many stresses, from the body weakening to loneliness and depression.

Our opportunity for genuine spiritual fulfillment is strengthened when we weave together the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda with the practical tools of recovery programs. Together they offer us a truly empowering personal program of recovery.

Practicing in a chair offers students unable to get on and off the ground the chance to share in the benefits of yoga. The program will offer you the tools to provide students with the ability to build strength, awareness, confidence and to increase their well-being both physically and mentally. Included will be how to work with a group with Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and people with other needs for a modified practice, including office workers.

While designed for yoga teachers, others who would benefit from the training are those who work regularly with the elderly or wish to share yoga with loved ones, as well as people looking for a way to practice short yoga sequences in their office.

Other topics include anatomy of ageing, guided meditations, tools for better communication with a population that can have limited hearing and sight and how to approach retirement homes and community centres and businesses to share this wonderful practice.

Enjoy this opportunity to help add to the quality of life of our elders.
