Chair Yoga Workshop with Charlotte Li

2 & 3 December 2023

About this workshop

This workshop is catered to all students who wish to deepen their understanding of Chair Yoga. The chair is an important part of asana practice for all levels as it allows us to stay in poses for longer without stress, to feel the full effect of the asanas and improve body awareness.

Students will explore and learn different postures using the chair – they will learn how to deepen the poses and the modifications to make the poses more suitable for their bodies. Each session will have detailed anatomy explanations where we break down the poses – the muscles it is working and stretching. With an understanding of what the purpose and benefit of the pose is, we will then cover the modifications catered for different levels and common injuries and how you can incorporate it in your personal practice. Partner Chair Yoga assists will also be introduced.

Suitable for all levels – beginners and advanced practitioners welcome. No inversions will be included.

**A manual of the poses and anatomy details will be provided for you to take notes in.
