Chair Yoga is a modified form of Hatha Yoga, based on the Knoff Yoga System, which allows people with disabilities, lack of mobility, balance problems, joint challenges, recovering from illness, accidents and operations, or other physical issues, to participate in and enjoy the benefits of a yoga practice.
With the “Baby Boomers” now entering retirement age ‘en-masse’, this is a great time to learn special skills to teach an aging population. The need for Chair Yoga Teachers will be huge and is just starting now.
Pre-requisite: Regular yoga practice (any style of yoga) for a minimum of 12 months.
The postures and techniques covered in this Chair Yoga Course are modifications of the Level 1 Discovery and Level 3 Foundation Courses. While it is not mandatory to attend the Discovery and Foundation courses to attend Chair Yoga it is recommended, as having a good understanding of these makes Chair Yoga more accessible and relatable.

Fee – $449 or Early Bird price of $399 if paid 6 weeks before commencement of the course.
