In this four-day postgraduate teacher training course, you will learn how to teach chair yoga to a wide range of students including those in general community groups, corporate, schools and aged care environments.

This training will provide participants with the skills, techniques and knowledge to enable you to immediately expand your business to teach yoga to the large (and rapidly growing) proportion of the community that cannot or choose not to practice yoga on a mat.

Chair yoga is an accessible form of yoga that can be practised by people of all ages and abilities and incorporates all elements of traditional yoga practise to support the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of students.

This course is delivered by Robyn Lewis, a level 2 Yoga Australia registered teacher. Robyn’s extensive yoga teaching experience includes vinyasa flow, core yoga, gentle yoga, chair yoga and children’s yoga. Robyn currently teaches the full range of chair yoga forms from gentle chair through to chair-mat blends to groups and one on one clients.

With a background as a high school teacher and corporate manager, Robyn has created an engaging and relevant post-graduate yoga teacher training course in line with the principles of adult learning. The course draws on the existing knowledge and experience of participants as yoga teachers and focuses on the theory and practice of the various forms of chair yoga.

Modules in the course include Evidence of Need (demographics); Technical Study; Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics; Anatomy and Physiology of Specialty Groups; Teaching Methodology; Class Management; Teaching Practice; Business of Chair Yoga.

The 50-hour course includes 37 contact hours and 13 non-contact hours. Assessment of competency is by full attendance and participation in contact elements and completion of non-contact elements (chair yoga practice, application of in course leaning and planning, teaching and reflecting tasks). Participants will receive a certificate of completion when non-contact elements are complete and can claim 50 CPD points (Yoga Australia).
