Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga Teacher Training Module 2 Taking It Off the Chair

For Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga teachers or anyone teaching chair yoga classes, including certified yoga teachers, teachers in training, healthcare professionals, and yoga practitioners.

Develop your chair yoga repertoire by taking your classes off the chair, incorporating chair and wall to assist students with prone, standing, and balancing poses. In this training you learn how to

  • Observe your students’ abilities and evaluate if a student can safely stand to perform poses
  • Take your students from sitting on a chair to standing with the support of a chair
  • Adapt traditional standing and prone asanas with the assistance of chair and wall
  • Refine and deepen your chair classes.

Lakshmi Voelker and Brenda Yarnold teach you how to work with your students more effectively to correctly align the body and safely take their yoga off the chair, prevent falls, develop muscle and bone strength, improve balance, and develop confidence while walking and stepping up and down stairs.

Note Participants receive a manual and certificate.

This program may be taken as part of Kripalu’s 1000-Hour Yoga Teacher Training or as a standalone program.
