The second half of the workshop will prepare you for teaching elders in their 80s and 90s. Learn seated movements and resistance exercises for strength as well as standing poses for balance. Julia will provide guidance for enhancing range of motion and sharpening students’ focus.

"I took Julia's chair yoga workshop in 2013, and I loved her teaching, delivery, and experience. I've been able to use it with my elder clients and with clients recovering from injuries or surgery. Thank you, Julia, for sharing your knowledge with us and dedicating your time to helping the elderly and physically challenged clients."--Soraya Riera, Piermont, NY
