Event description

Description

In a fun and relaxed way, come and experience a shift; get the tools you need to service senior yogis, whether they are fit or frail. Warren will lead you through a couple of yoga classes with all of the poses modified for chair yoga and provide you with explanations as how the sequences have evolved over time. Topics covered within the course will include:

1. Insurance, Keep On Moving Designation, CPR and First Aid
2. Screening, Participant Readiness Questionnaires and waivers
3. Warm up, cool down and Shavasana for seniors
4. Modifying yoga poses for the chair class and sequencing
5. Creating your own sequence
6. Appropriate intensity levels, modifications, variations and alternate poses.
7. Invitational language, putting them at ease and offering “outs”
8. Setting the environment for the class
9. Emergency planning

Also, we will spend time breaking into smaller groups, taking turns leading other participants through your sequence(s) while they have hindrances such as ear plugs, blindfolds or wrist/ankle weights.

This course counts for 14 contact hours with respect to Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Credits

While anyone is welcome to take this workshop, it is expected that one has either the 200hr yoga teacher training under their belt or another fitness designation that would allow you to teach a general fitness class in conjunction with a good knowledge of yoga.
