FOR PARTICIPANTS:

Looking for a safe and gentle, yet effective yoga practice that doesn't have you performing those “pretzel-like" yoga positions? A practice where you can enjoy all the benefits of traditional yoga while being comfortably supported by a chair?

This Chair Yoga course has you in mind. If limited mobility or injuries are holding you back from enjoying your body to the fullest, then you owe it to yourself to give this course a try. It's an amazing way to safely stretch and strengthen your body.

To see if Chair Yoga is right for you, identify any of the following limitations you might have:

  • Living with chronic pain…
  • Limited mobility due to illness, injury or disease…
  • Inflammation in the joints…
  • Working at a desk all day…
  • Never done yoga before…
  • And difficulty standing for long periods of time.

FOR TEACHERS:

Increasingly, people are turning to yoga to help them feel comfortable in their own bodies. As a yoga instructor, you want to be able to offer clientele safe and fun modifications compared to traditional poses. This course will give you three full-length chair yoga practices, as well as a breakdown of 30 yoga poses. It's a great course for anyone looking to teach yoga to seniors or people with reduced mobility. This is not a certification course and is simply meant to be educational for yoga teachers who want to expand to new clienteles.

If You're Experiencing Any of These Limitations…

Chair Yoga might be the perfect practice to help you slowly develop balance and stability—while improving strength and flexibility.

People with limited mobility often think yoga is not accessible to them. It absolutely can be. By moving slowly and mindfully, you can open up tight areas of your body in a safe and supportive way.

Kassandra walks you step-by-step through each of the poses. Her detailed instructions allow you to follow along without having to keep your eyes glued to the screen. You can practice at your own pace in the comfort of your home, and you'll get the feeling of being in the studio. It won't feel like you're “missing out" on anything. You'll also find it's more time and cost effective than a regular class.

This Course Includes 3 Easy Classes:

  • Slow Flow - Level 1: Starts off slow so you can build a strong foundation. You'll stay seated on the chair for the entire practice and focus on opening up your neck, shoulders, and hips.
  • Balance & Stability - Level 2: Slightly faster paced. You'll integrate some standing poses while using the chair for balance and stability. This is the perfect class for people who are working at slowly regaining their strength and mobility back.
  • Quick Energizer - All Levels: Designed to quickly give you a boost of energy through several simple poses including: twists, side bends, and forward folds. It's the perfect class to do on your lunch break at work or any time you're feeling lethargic.

Downloadable Content and Free Bonus Included

Each video lesson is downloadable so you can put them on your tablet or smart phone. Watch them anywhere! What's more, you'll also receive a FREE BONUS “Yoga at Home – 100 Yoga Poses". In this eBook you'll see illustrated pictures of Kassandra's favorite 100 yoga poses with complete instructions (no chair poses in this).

Included is a Money-Back Satisfaction Guarantee. If for ANY reason you aren't satisfied within 30 days, we'll happily refund every penny. In fact, go ahead and TRY the course out right now. See for yourself. If it's not everything and more… get your money back promptly.

Mellow does not have to be boring! Treat yourself (or a loved one) to this nourishing chair yoga program designed to enhance mobility and ease.

The focus of this program is on actual class time, so the bulk of it is made up of videos where we practice yoga together. There are seven classes in total, including one class with a massage focus, and every class is between 35 and 40 minutes long. As a series they start simple and gently build in complexity and coordination, but each class is also a complete stand-alone practice in itself.

Every session begins and ends with a brief guided meditation to help you get centred and grounded. This in turn helps you to relax and self-regulate, resulting in less stress and anxiety.

This program is perfect for:

  • beginners looking for a low-risk, low-stakes way to try yoga for the first time

  • seniors looking for exercise that is easy on the joints and known to reduce aches and pains

  • those who because of injury or limitations in mobility want to avoid standing poses and/or floor poses

  • anyone who is sedentary and wants chair exercises to offset the negative effects of prolonged sitting

  • anyone that can benefit from a convenient and affordable chair yoga program that can be done at home and on your own schedule

  • yoga teachers looking for creative moves and novel sequences to add to their chair yoga repertoire

All classes are available as downloads, meaning you can enjoy them even when you're offline.

Included in this course is access to a Facebook community group where you can ask questions, share your experiences, and find support.

This course is backed by a 30 day money-back guarantee.

Chair yoga is an excellent way to practice yoga for many people who didn't think yoga was possible for them or during periods of recovery. Whether it is because of limited mobility, arthritis, pre or post-surgery, balance issues, or low energy, chair yoga allows people to receive the benefits of yoga while having the chair as a constant companion for support.

In this Chair Yoga for Beginners course, we introduce participants to chair yoga with each class gradually building upon the next.

This course is divided into five different modules:

  1. Introduction: How to get started, safety, and general stuff you'll want to know before getting started.

  2. Seated Chair Yoga Classes: In these yoga classes, we practice in the chair the entire time.

  3. Standing Chair Yoga Classes: In these classes, we typically start and end in a chair but a bulk of the postures are standing, using the chair for support.

  4. Hybrid Chair Yoga Classes: In the chair yoga classes, we start and end in the chair but mix it up doing a good portion of the postures seated and the others standing. These are longer classes.

  5. How To's: While we review how to do postures in all classes, this section lets you see the different variations and modifications for common postures and transitions you will see in class so you can see different modifications. These are great to simply watch or practice to.

You will get access to our downloadable Chair Yoga Planner and Journal to help schedule and reflect on your practice and a recommended product list.

Dance Chair Yoga is really for everyone who requires the support of a chair whilst moving the body to a range of music.  As we get older so many of us become more sedentary. Without realising it, we’re taking shallow breaths, our muscles and joints start to lose their fluidity. Over time, we also tend to lose our mobility and as a result we feel less enthusiastic and motivated. And NO, it’s not because you’re getting old!  The solution to maintaining a love for life, a healthy body and a clear mind is to regularly participate in safe, supported exercise.

No matter if you’re 53 years old like me or 95, chair yoga is an awesome way to reinstate your love for life again, to feel great from the inside out gain and regain clarity, focus and gratitude for everything you have.
