Chair Yoga Teacher Training


Making Yoga Accessible to All

Yoga is beneficial for anyone and everyone no matter your age or ability. As a School, we promote inclusive yoga teacher practices and, to that end, we offer a range of training programmes and CPD courses to equip yoga teachers with the practical tools and knowledge required to teach inclusive yoga and meditation classes to everybody and every body.


Chair yoga offers an exciting possibility to create inclusive yoga classes for students of all ages and abilities.  It's most common application is teaching classes to senior yoga practitioners. However, chair yoga is a useful tool when teaching within a restricted environment such as corporate yoga within an office space or children's yoga within a classroom. It can also be used to support recovery from sports injuries and it is, in itself, an excellent workout for students who can practice other forms of yoga.
