Chair Yin Announcement.png

In this 10 hour on-demand virutal course you will learn how to adapt most of the Yin Yoga postures to be based from a chair.  All postures will be taught from two perspectives:

  1. Meeting the needs of seniors and other students who are unable to practice from the floor

  2. Offering a chair based approach to Yin asana for students who are able to access the floor, but may want/need to access the poses a chair based position. This approach can be utilized in the office, while traveling or just to get a different perspective of their existing practice

What you will learn:

  • Chair adaptations for over 20 Yin postures 

  • Use of props such as bolsters, blocks, blankets & straps within Chair adaptations

  • How to lead integrated mat/chair Yin classes

  • How to teach posture visulization practices

  • The fundamental principles of teaching Yin Yoga functionally

  • Teaching methodology & sequencing for Chair Yin

  • Three 65 minute Chair Yin classes

Throughout the course, you will have direct access to Michelle (lead trainer) to ask any questions that may arise. This gives you the opportunity to fine tune your skills in teaching Yin Yoga more accessibly. 

The course includes a 40 page digital manual, complete with color pictures of all of the postures and many of their variations.
