Apologies for the late reply...(tech problems at this end! and time just flies on by...) I appreciate your post. Sounds like a wonderful chair yoga program you've developed. I am definitely interested--however, I live near Toronto and it would be a bit far to travel for the course (Boston is at least a 10hr drive+). I do think the release of chronic tensions seems to be a key for this group. I am intending on using it with a group of hospital in-patients (90% seniors) , most are wheelchair bound or have musculoskeletal and/or balance restrictions.
I tried a sample routine already with this group, and it seems many have postural limitations and struggle in the gentle postures. I have found getting them to be more active by perching on more of the edge of their chairs worked well to improve this. I am not sure if it was correct or not, but I was trying to get them to almost use their "sits" bones and feet to feel the weight shift and grounding...
I am definitely interested in sharing information with you as I've still not had much success finding information on this topic....(I am still at a yoga teacher training and won't be fully qualified till June)...Thank you for your offer to help and ideas...I'm definitely interested in hearing more!
