Not a Yoga teacher? You can still qualify:

The certification program is of special interest to PT (physical therapist), OT (occupational therapist), CSW (clinical social worker), RNs (registered nurses), or other healthcare professionals including those working with seniors, children, those in wheelchairs, or anyone with physical challenges that prevent them from getting down on the floor.

Description:

Do you have students, patients, or clients that would benefit from doing Yoga but:

• cannot get down on the floor because of age, limitations, or inflexibility, or

• want to practice their Yoga where getting on the floor is impractical (at work, traveling, etc.)?

These folks have traditionally been unable to reap the exceptional benefits yoga brings to the body, mind, and spirit. Now, you can open this wondrous world to a new audience.

In this program, Tracey will add a new dimension to your teaching and/or care-giving. The teacher certification will provide you with a firm foundation for teaching Chair Yoga.

Along with the normal meditation, breathing, and relaxation techniques, you will learn how to adapt the classical Yoga asanas to the chair (vs. the floor)-what Lakshmi terms the chair asanas (poses or postures):

You will learn the chair asanas such as:

• sun salutation

• moon salutation

• warrior series

• classical balance postures

• the contraindications of each chair asana

In addition, during the program, you will learn the chair asanas for:

• Double Chair Yoga (each student uses two chairs)

• Pair Chair Yoga (two students, each on their own chair, working together as partners)

• Weighted Chair Yoga (each student employs appropriate weights as part of their Chair Yoga)

During your program Tracey will cover additional Eastern disciplines and modalities such as:

• Pa Tuan Chin

• Chinese Arthritis Relief Hand Movements

• Acupressure knee strengthening exercises

• Various breathing techniques for our meditation, relaxation, and asanas

• 7 Chakras and their meanings, colors, sounds, and affirmations

• 5 Yamas and 5 Niyamas

• Do-In Chinese Self Massage and Foot Reflexology

• Basic nutrition to honor our body temple

This course usually qualifies for continuing education units with Yoga Alliance.
