The goal of this course is to instruct you on the proper practice of Chair Yoga, and help you learn to facilitate classes knowledgeably and creatively, while also keeping the safety and security of your students as the top priority. As a Chair Yoga instructor, you will teach students of varying age groups and health conditions as well as in varying environments. Due to the inclusive nature of a Chair Yoga practice, our students will learn to assist many different student types (ex. Seniors, Office Workers, Students in Rehab, etc.). Through this program, you will develop an understanding of Chair Yoga practices and methodologies, as well as understand how to create Lesson Plans and facilitate them for any student that you teach.

This course covers dozens of postures and includes about 6 hours of videos, 7hrs of audio clips, about 600 photos, and 25+ example Lesson Plans to help make this course interactive and easy to understand.

Throughout this course, you will rediscover the asanas, refresh on adjustment and modification practices, develop a deeper understanding of using a Chair as your main prop, as well as refresh your understanding of contraindications. Pranayama techniques are also reviewed to help deepen your Chair Yoga practice along with further developing your understanding of anatomy and helping students with limited ranges of motion. We also dive into common health challenges that your students may have so that you can safely and knowledgeably teach students of all backgrounds. You will further your understanding of prop use, proper alignment, how slight alterations of a pose can enhance or reduce effectiveness, review safety precautions, and how the body, breath, and mind are all fundamentally linked. Sequencing and Lesson Plan creation, for a variety of health conditions (both physical and mental) are also covered.

Additionally, a refresher on the non-physical side of Yoga through studying Yogic Philosophy, relaxation techniques, meditation, and Yoga Teacher ethics are reviewed.

Why is it called, “Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box?”

In 1998, Aura Wellness Center started offering Yoga Teacher Trainings, lead by Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500, YACEP, called “Yoga Teacher Training Camps” – a full month immersion course.

By 2002, many of our local students had said they wanted to take a Yoga Teacher Training, however, due to family obligations, work schedules, and cost, it was impossible to take a month off and become a Yoga teacher. Dr. Paul Jerard started thinking about how to make an affordable, convenient, and self-paced training to work on anyone’s schedule.

He made these new courses with the same curriculum, materials, and lessons as an onsite training, so that a graduating teacher would have the same experience. These courses would be later shipped in boxes all over the world with a syllabus, teacher tips, exams, media, and books became known as the “Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box”.

Nowadays, many courses have shifted to online formats, especially due to increased shipping costs and greater convenience of receiving learnings electronically. However, we have kept the name “Camp-in-a-Box” in our courses, as it is what many people know us by, and it is part of our proud history of offering affordable trainings.
