I will talk about how to guide/run classes for the various groups and explain cautions/boundaries.

I will run through 2 practical sessions, showing you how I run my classes - 1 in the a.m and 1 in the p.m. After each session I will break down and guide you how the classes flow, each part by part, so as you can remember, giving you chance to write out in your own words. (Brief session tips/notes will be given). I am happy to also email out to you some of the relaxation scripts I use.

This session guides you to work /run sessions for people less abled bodied, or seated charity events, places where people can't get to the floor/have mats etc

Where you can use these sessions: Care homes, the mature crowd, charity/carers groups, aged care, mental health groups, for people who've suffered a brain injury, Stress busting, fayres, corporate events or where ever you see fit to run, incorporating with your sessions/classes/workshops.

Who is this workshop for?

Qualified Yoga teachers, therapist with knowledge of chair activity, care home workers, teachers, mental health workers. (Ideally suiting people with knowledge/qualification of A&P, yoga or exercise.)

****This workshop day, does not come with a qualification, however for experienced teachers, body work therapists, with already knowledge you will learn many practices, tools and tips, to gain the confidence or enhance the sessions you already run - I have found as a yoga teacher, practicing common sense, being aware of your groups levels and limitations then your insurance and teaching qualification is good enough***

I've found it very humbling to teach with various groups in the community, aged care, for people who've suffered a brain injury or stroke and various carers groups. It's a pleasure to see peoples faces light up, laugh and smile. Taking people back to a child like state, allowing fun, bringing some lightness to people's day & life. There's a big need for more of us to go out into the community, to boost health and well-being and share these up-lifting skills to a wider audience.
