Chair Yoga Teacher Trainings

After teaching traditional yoga for many years, I came to realize that there is a need for more inclusive and accessible yoga classes, yet most yoga schools and teacher trainings are lacking in this much-needed component. My hope is that more teachers and wellness professionals will be trained in chair yoga, so that all bodies, regardless of age, size, or physical condition can experience all the wonderful benefits and joys of yoga. 


About the training:

A Yoga Alliance accredited training designed for yoga teachers , yoga teachers-in-training, yoga therapists, wellness/healthcare practitioners, or anyone with students or clients who may have difficulty getting down on the floor due to age, body size, inflexibility or other physical limitations. Chair yoga is an ideal way to create a welcoming and accessible space for anyone, in any body, to practice yoga. It is also a useful way to incorporate yoga into a classroom or therapeutic setting, or any place where sitting or lying on the floor may not be ideal. When we bring our yoga practice off the floor and into a chair, it becomes easier to integrate into a variety of different settings.

Participants will receive a training manual, a certificate, and are eligible to receive Yoga Alliance continuing education credits. This training is open to non-yoga teachers who have at least 20 hours of yoga experience.


In this two-day training, participants in this training will learn to:


• Effectively plan and teach safe and transformative chair yoga classes

• Creatively adapt yoga poses to fit the needs of the students

• Discern student limitations and identify precautions and contraindications

• Incorporate meditation, breath work and relaxation techniques into any chair yoga class

• Bring all the joys and benefits of yoga to a wider variety of students/clients


"Yoga has always been for everyone. We as teachers just aren't great at teaching accessibly"

-Matthew Sandford, Founder of Opening Yoga to Everyone adaptive yoga program
