I was on the live training with Maria on the 21st of March (2020). I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Thank you so much Maria.

I highly recommend the course to anyone interested in chair yoga and wanting to offer alternatives to less mobile people.

I found Maria's recent online chair training very informative and thorough, with the right balance of presenting, breaks and practice.

The course has been really useful to to broaden my knowledge while giving me food for thought about how to adaptation. Really was worth the investment.

I am Maria and I am Health Professional (BSc) and Yoga teacher and therapist. (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 offering instant access to the benefits of this wonderful practice without the need for extra space, equipment or (dare I say it) time.

Ian Gourlay, MS Society Aberdeen,

tells us about the impact chair yoga has in the MS community.

I have been teaching for the MS Society in Aberdeen for 3.5 years.

The most satisfying aspect of the job is to hear and see how the students benefit from the practices.

Recently it has been a real honour to be able to reach Multiple Sclerosis Patients not just from Aberdeen, but Scotland and other corners of the United Kingdom.
