SATYA's “Informational Sharing Sessions" give teachers an opportunity to explore a specific subject in a supportive two or three hour session. These information sharing sessions are facilitated by experienced yoga teachers or professionals of a certain expertise. We invite teachers to share their experiences of teaching yoga to special populations. If you are interesting in leading a Sharing Session please fill out the form above to contact Michelle Couture.
Adaptive Chair Yoga 6/10 w/ Mindy Miller-Muse
Adaptive Chair Yoga: Increased Accessibility in Mixed Level Classes.
In this 3 hour Informational Sharing Session for teachers, We will explore how using a chair may strengthen your ability to work with a more diverse range of physical abilities. During this session, we will review chair variations of traditional postures that may be incorporated in a stand-alone "Chair Yoga Class" or utilized within a mixed levels class where some participants may benefit from the use of a chair for more stability and/or support while others may opt for non-chair variations. We will explore challenges and successes of sequencing, pacing and leading mixed levels classes and some ideas for increased efficacy and accessibility. This session will include a brief practice so that you may have the experience of participating in an all levels practice of this nature.
