Chair Yoga Training 

Making Yoga Inclusive

The aim of Active Balance Yoga School is to offer courses that help make yoga accessible to as many people as possible. To this aim, we offer chair yoga training, children's yoga teacher training,  and in the near future, we will offer pregnancy and postnatal yoga teacher training and more. The lead teachers that will deliver these courses will share from their extensive experience and knowledge and the courses will offer specialised options to help existing yoga teachers promote yoga to more specific groups of practitioners.  


Chair yoga offers an exciting possibility to create inclusive yoga classes for students of all abilities and ages.  The most common application of chair yoga is when teaching classes to senior yoga practitioners. However, chair yoga is also a useful tool when teaching corporate yoga, when yoga can be applied to the office environment. Chair yoga can be also used during recovery from sports injuries as well as an excellent workout in itself, for students who are fully able to practice other forms of yoga.

Joanna Piotrowska is an experienced yoga teacher, who has taught chair yoga classes for a number of years. Under the guidance of Joanna, the students will learn to:


1. Conduct a full yoga session sitting on the chair or using a chair as a prop.

2. Construct sequences utilizing a range of alternatives provided.

3. Organize and prepare varied duration classes based on the abilities of the group.

4. Create chair yoga classes tailored for senior students, taking into consideration some of the specific health concerns and levels of fitness.

5.Integrate different variations to Sun Salutations into chair yoga classes.

6. Deliver inclusive classes.
