This Chair Yoga / Office Yoga DVD is designed specifically for Yoga teachers who want to teach two fast growing populations and one smaller one. Office workers and seniors make up a vast population, no matter where you live, but this DVD also addresses the needs of the physically disabled population.
According to various studies, someone in The United States turns 50 every seven seconds. There are approximately 76 million Baby Boomers in The United States, so this is a Yoga teaching market with job security for decades.
Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500 gives inside information about Yoga teaching opportunities in every town. You will feel like you are present at our Chair Yoga Teacher Workshops. You will know where Yoga instructors should look for jobs and learn about common contraindications.
This DVD also includes standing postures, such as Triangle and Warrior variations, can be practiced seated, or standing, with the aid of a chair. Your students can learn to practice Sun Salutations or Vinyasa, (flowing postures), from seated or standing positions.
Chair Yoga and Office Yoga classes are needed for a variety of reasons.
- Some prescription medicines make balancing difficult.
- Seniors and Senior Centers want the benefits of Yoga
- This is great exercise for the handicapped population.
- Adult Day Care centers need solid exercise routines.
- Assisted living complexes are looking for these classes.
- Nursing Homes have Chair Yoga classes.
- Rehab centers want Chair Yoga classes.
- Physical Therapists, Physicians and Hospitals want to refer their patients to Chair Yoga classes.
- The corporate sector needs Yoga classes in offices and manufacturing facilities.
Contrary to popular opinion, Chair Yoga is not for seniors only.
Most of us take our good health for granted. The physically handicapped have no age boundaries and they are very enthusiastic students.
Due to trauma, or a debilitating disease, at any time, any one of us could become physically handicapped. Most of us drive cars every day; and unfortunately, there is always a risk of an auto accident.
Do you think all of the Chair Yoga classes will be in senior facilities – 10 years from now?
Chair Yoga classes will be in “top name” fitness centers. The fitness industry will not want to miss the opportunity to tap into a 76 million plus US membership market, that will visit them during “off peak” hours.
Forward thinking companies want to take care of their employees.
Therefore, look for Chair Yoga, Office Yoga and senior fitness to explode, in popularity, for the next two or three decades. These groups will be looking at Yoga for longevity, so it won’t be anything close to a “fad.”
Although governments will not adjust for massive senior and corporate health care needs, until it is too late, that doesn’t mean you can’t do something about it.
