MELBOURNE Chair Yoga Teacher Training 2022
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us at our face to face training and learn how to teach Chair Yoga in a fun, supportive and inclusive group environment.
Our course is comprehensive, in-depth and will teach you everything you need to know in order to teach Chair Yoga to many populations, safely and effectively. It is open to yoga and non-yoga teachers such as medical or mental health professionals, community or aged care workers, teachers, corporate workers or anyone who would like to share the benefits of Yoga with more of their community.
The course consists of 32 hours of study including 2 days of face to face study. There is 16 hrs of home study to be completed within one month after the face to face portion of the training. This includes some study of the manual, DVD and online content and all materials will be given to you when we meet on the first day of training. You may complete this at your own pace, within the one month time-frame. Upon submission of the checklist of homework and 16 question assessment, your certificate will be issued. Please note - unless prior arrangements are made, you will need to be present for the whole weekend to obtain your certificate.
