Attention Yoga Teachers, Therapists and Caregivers

By | September 20, 2015

Did you get the email about the upcoming Chair Yoga training next month? If not, you need to be on our email list, so you don’t miss important training information.

My 82 year old mother in law was raving the other day about a new Yoga class she is taking, Chair Yoga. She loves how fun and easy it is, how it doesn’t put unnecessary stress on her joints. If you think the desire for Chair Yoga won’t reach your area for a while and there is no need to rush to learn how to teach Chair Yoga correctly, think again. My mother-in-law lives in Billings, Montana. And if it’s big in Billings, you can be sure there’s interest in your community.

Over and over, across the country, older adults are finding that Chair Yoga helps them feel better, get stronger, gain flexibility and become more agile and better balanced. Old injuries don’t stand in the way of Chair Yoga. Neither does advancing age. Seniors are thrilled when they try Chair Yoga for the first time because its a form of exercise they can do without risking injury, if it’s taught right. But there are specific skills you need to do Chair Yoga the right way for your clients. And things you need to understand- how seniors think, what they feel, what their issues and needs are and how you can use Chair Yoga to help them.

The upcoming Chair Yoga Teacher Training with experts Amy Kraft and Janet Rae Humphrey happens October 23-25 in Scottsdale, AZ.  Janet and Amy have put together special discounts for teachers. Here’s what you need to know:

“Our mission is to bring chair yoga to as many older adults as possible. Therefore, from now until October 15, 2015, bring a friend and you will each pay $600. For an individual the price is $650. After October 7 the price increases to $700.”
