Chair Yoga Apprenticeship

Michelle is Victoria’s leading Yoga Therapist, with over 2500 hours of experience teaching Chair Yoga at seniors centers and hospitals in Victoria. We hope to greatly expand Canada’s Chair Yoga program and are interested in training a wave of appropriate Chair Yoga teachers. Teaching people in need is not only hugely beneficial to those people, but is a wonderful investment in your own personal Yoga journey.

Requirements for Chair Yoga Apprenticeship

Learning how to teach seniors and people in need can be very challenging, but is always very rewarding. The yoga part of the training is not very physically challenging, but learning to accommodate different physical and mental challenges can be hard to grasp. Depending on your level of experience practicing and teaching Yoga, a Chair Yoga apprenticeship can last from as short as a week to a couple of months. The program is generally finished when the apprentice is comfortable running their own Chair Yoga program.

There are many opportunities for regular work in this field, and it can be extremely rewarding!
