Chair Based yoga practices are effective and impactful and go beyond asana and pranayama in

addressing students’ imbalances plus they can open the doors to population in your community

that would have not otherwise benefited from the practices of yoga.


It is our duty as yoga teachers to be inclusive and offer access to the yoga and therefore the

benefits of this practice in order to have a positive impact in the lives of those we teach with

our gift of yoga.


If that can make a difference even to the life of one person, then we have done our job well and

chair based yoga offers the opportunity to do our job well.

The Instructor

Maria JONES

BSc, Yoga Teacher, Chair Specialist

I am Maria and I am Health Professional (BSc) and Yoga teacher and therapist. (YAP Teacher, RYT 500, E-RYT 200, YACEP) I am on a mission to empower others to deliver effective yoga classes to everyone through the use of the chair. The chair offers all the benefits of yoga without the need to get on the floor, whether you can’t or won’t. The chair also makes yoga accessible in the classroom offering instant access to the benefits of this wonderful practice without the need for extra space, equipment or (dare I say it) time.
