The call for workplace sessions has been higher than ever this season and is likely to continue long after the pandemic has passed. It is actually after this period that we will know and feel the long term effects of physical distancing and other long term stress that has affected most people in various ways during this year. This has led to more online yoga, that can be practiced in place, in order to avoid the perils of daily sitting and not exercising.
Over and over, people tell me how much better they feel after a half hour of breathing and exercising from their chair or with chair, wall or desk support. I invite you to learn safe, accessible postures you can share with family, colleagues and clients during this one day workshop. You will need a sturdy chair without wheels and if possible, without arms, such as a folding chair or dining chair, that allows your feet to be flat on the floor. You also may want a wall nearby and a pillow or two and medium size blanket such as a couch throw.
Learn postures, breathing exercises, and movements that can be done at home or in the workplace without changing clothes or using a yoga mat. Discover stretches and strengtheners to help humans of all ages and conditions stay active and well during this time period where more people are at home, not going to gyms or studios, and still need yoga for both physical and emotional balance.
You will receive an emailed handout with postures and some of their benefits or contraindications. Feel prepared to guide or practice a 30 to 60 minute supported sequence for any level of fitness.
Yoga teachers will receive 6 credit hours or study toward Yoga Alliance recertification. And we'll have some fun too! Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org
