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.

Hi! I am Maria and I am your course tutor.

I am Health Professional (BSc) and Yoga teacher and therapist. (RYT 500, E-RYT 200, YACEP)
I am a champion in chair based yoga and adapted yoga movement.
As a chronically ill person, I have not always been able to practice yoga with ease. Either in pain, or experiencing fatigue, stiffness and weakness in my body it has not been easy to find yoga classes that accounted for my limited abilities.
When I became a yoga teacher I quickly decided to develop teaching skills that make the practice available to those less able, older and chronically ill.
Let me show you how also.

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

I have been teaching for the MS Society in Aberdeen for 4.5 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.

A personal note…

Adaptation is key to the practice of yoga.

Only when yoga is adapted to one's abilities, wants and needs it can be engaging.

Only when the practice of yoga is adapted to target imbalances it can be effective.

Adaptation allows you to teach the student not the asana.

As a chronically ill person practising yoga I want to see teachers provide students with practices that become tools to manage life and health challenges and feel empowered.

Life does not stop after diagnosis of a chronic disease and life can be fulfilling with the help of yoga.

I hope you join me on this journey of empowering others through adaptation in the practice of yoga
