In this program, Tracey will add a new dimension to your teaching and/or care-giving.  The teacher certification will provide you with a firm foundation for teaching The Foundations of Chair Yoga.

Along with the normal meditation, breathing, and relaxation techniques, you will learn how to adapt the classical Yoga asanas to the chair. You will explore chair asanas such as:

  • Sun salutation
  • Moon salutation
  • Warrior series
  • Classical balance postures
  • The contra-indications of each chair asana

In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the chair asanas for:

  • Double chair yoga (each student uses two chairs)
  • Partner chair yoga (two students—each on their own chair, working together as partners)
  • Weighted chair yoga (each student employs appropriate weights for chair yoga)

Tracey will also cover additional Eastern disciplines and modalities, as part of the program. Some examples include…

  • Matrika Shakti – Power of the Word
  • Hand movements for arthritis relief
  • Acupressure knee strengthening exercises
  • Various breathing techniques for meditation, relaxation, and asanas
  • The seven Chakras and their meanings, colors, sounds, and affirmations
  • The 5 Yamas and 5 Niyamas
  • Do-In Chinese Self Massage and Foot Reflexology
  • Basic nutrition to honor our body temple

You will receive access to an online manual (which you are welcome to download and print) and at the completion of the course, a certificate stating you have completed The Foundations of Chair Yoga and are a registered Chair Yoga Teacher with Ageless Arts Yoga.
