Our Chair Yoga Teacher Training is an opportunity to offer yoga to people of all ages and body types led by experienced yoga teacher, Christina Rufin. Christina began her studio teaching service at Hosh in 2009 and credits us for the many paths it took her on on the yoga road to reaching all communities.


This 12 hour training prepares you to offer a quality yoga class to adults and seniors with the support of a chair. 


Yoga changes lives but many people do not think they can do it because of their physical limitations. The joy in the faces of the people you will teach is priceless once they realize that they have the ability to practice yoga too!


This teacher training will include:

  • Chair Yoga Asanas and Sequencing

  • Pranayama and Breathing Techniques

  • Meditation

  • Practice Teaching

  • The attitudinal approach necessary to teach a Chair Yoga class

We will cover why we want to teach chair yoga to a community that might have physical limitations due to aging and/or injuries and how to reach this community that can be either open or averse to learning.


  • The asanas will be for both seated poses and standing poses with the chair nearby for support.

  • The pranayama will be included for age appropriate students and for people suffering from any respiratory ailment.

  • The meditation will be specific to this community as well.

  • This training is also helpful for those wishing to teach yoga in offices or areas with limited space.

Hosh Yoga in partnership with Hosh Seniors will provide each trainee with a training guide and volunteer teaching opportunities after training.
