50hr Therapeutic and Chair Yoga Training
Accessibility, Applicability, and Autonomy in Practice
This training is open to committed practitioners hoping to deepen in their personal practice; yoga teachers (teaching or hoping to); as well as social workers, psychologists, bodyworkers, therapeutic recreationalists, art therapists, and any other group or health workers looking to offer simple yoga tools to their communities as an add-on to their current therapeutic practices. This training was developed with each module building on the previous one, but can also be attended as individual modules. This training is based in the lineage of Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar (viniyoga), where we consider what is appropriate practice – why, for who, and for what purpose. In this lineage we focus on the FUNCTION of practice over the FORM, which means that anyone who is breathing can do this practice.
This training is intended to offer practitioners the space and time to deepen in their personal yoga and meditation practices within a like-minded practice community (sangha) as well as offer practical ways that simple therapeutic teachings may be formally taught or facilitated in group settings (within or outside of a yoga studio), or informally lived and shared as life practices with friends, family, and community. It is open to students of any age, ability, and mobility level.
**This training does not certify you as a yoga teacher, but can act as a complement to your current yoga teaching or other therapeutic practice.**
