Thank you so much!! I’m so very pleased with the online chair yoga course, it has been very insightful and greatly expanded my understanding of yoga asana. The online course webpage was so simple and easy to navigate. It had a nice flow and loads & loads of information and poses! I really enjoyed learning from home, at my own pace.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and learnt so much. Information that I can use for my Chair Yoga Classes but also for my regular yoga practices as well. Everything was explained so simply and was easy to understand, its also great that I can keep going back over information and re watch the videos when I need to. I would not hesitate in recommending this course to anyone who is looking to teach chair yoga or yoga for seniors.
