Do you know people who would benefit from yoga but:
Cannot get down (or up) from the floor due to age, disability, inflexibility, or injury?
Want to practise yoga where getting on the floor is impractical (at work, travelling, etc.)?
Traditionally these people have been unable to reap the exceptional benefits of yoga.
Chair yoga makes it possible!
With the advent of social prescribing, yoga teachers with fully accessible chair yoga skills are in greater demand, and this course provides the necessary knowledge and skills to meet the standards required.
Created in 1982, Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga (LVCY) has been training chair yoga teachers for 40
years, proven effective with teachers worldwide. Its special focus on ‘levels of flexibility’ provides
teachers with the structure and confidence to adapt any pose safely and effectively for people of all
ages and abilities on any chair. In addition, LVCY offers tools and inspiration for tapping into each
teacher’s own creativity when bringing chair yoga to those who need it, sharing the benefits with
every BODY in yoga studios, leisure centres, hospitals, schools, care homes, community settings, and
offices as well as at home.
What the training will cover:
This comprehensive 32-hour course is self paced, combining self-study and one-to-one online mentoring.
Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive your LVCYT (Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga Teacher)
