Description: 

In today’s world there is an ever increasing need for adaptive yoga. As the benefits of yoga become more well known, more diverse groups of people require modified yoga postures so they can also receive the benefits.

Using the 12 basic postures of the Sivananda sequence as the foundation, this course will teach you to practice yoga with a chair, incorporating breathing and relaxation methods to produce all the benefits of yoga done from the floor on a mat for people who are unable to get on the floor.
