Teaching Chair Yoga

Sunday, June 3, 2018
1:30 -  4:30pm
with Christine Ling, E-RYT, YACEP
Fee: $69 + HST

Chair Yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced either sitting in a chair, or standing alongside a chair – using it as support. This type of approach may appeal to students who may be unable to get up and down to the mat – as required in a regular yoga class. Those students with disabilities or other health issues such as vertigo, high blood pressure, chronic pain or a myriad of other conditions which would prevent them from otherwise practicing yoga, will find this style of yoga to be very enjoyable and highly beneficial.

Teacher Certificate supplied. Full manual. Canfitpro CEC’s available upon request.

 

Yoga for Aging Bodies and Minds
with Maureen Rae

Sunday, October 14, 2018
1:30 -  5:00pm
Fee: $89 + HST

Fitness and Yoga professionals are reporting a huge surge in the number of active seniors attending classes. We are faced with instructing ages from 50-90! And all in the same class! Students are educated, and they want to be physically active as a deterrent to some of the realities of older age.

Sore wrists, knees. Aching hips. Curled up fingers and toes. Loss of eyesight and hearing. Struggles with balance and agility...and that's just a starting point!

Struggles with hypertension, osteoporosis, depression and early-onset dementia– and more – can be alleviated by practicing yoga...but typically not the yoga that we learned in our basic teacher training courses.

The focus of our time together will be to explore:

• safe and effective poses, and pose sequences;
• fun props, chairs for those students who need them, and
• breathing techniques that are appropriate for this age group.

We will also discuss loneliness, feelings of isolation and of being unloved, and how connection with the group can help. According to an Amsterdam-based study of the elderly, reported int he Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry in 2013, “Loneliness increases the risk of dementia in older adults by as much as 64%.”

Teacher Certificate supplied! Full manual. Limited to 15 students. Register early!
