This post graduate online professional development (PD) for yoga teachers (minimum 200 hour trained) is designed to develop the knowledge and skills required to teach accessible yoga on the chair (or supported by the chair) in a wide range of community settings. The content of the PD has been approved by Yoga Australia as Approved Professional Development (APD) for face to face and online delivery.
This PD will be online (Zoom) so that yoga teachers located in many settings are able to benefit from the training and reduce the risk of illness. Online training reduces costs for travel, accommodation and food and allows yoga teachers with caring and employment responsibilities to participate from home.
Chair yoga is an inclusive and accessible form of yoga that can be practiced by people of all ages and abilities and incorporates all elements of a traditional yoga practice to support the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of students.
This PD will provide you 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.
