therapeutic chair yoga workshop

  • Therapeutic Chair Yoga Workshop I June 12–17, 2016
  • Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, Rhinebeck, NY

Intended for people living with medical conditions and those who treat them, this workshop teaches you how to safely use TCY to improve joint and muscle health, reduce pain, improve posture and balance, and reduce injuries.

Therapeutic Chair Yoga (TCY) offers an alternative yoga practice for anyone who finds floor yoga poses too demanding, including those suffering from mobility issues and medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, joint replacements, spinal stenosis, herniated disks, degenerative disk disease, SI joint derangement, piriformis syndrome, and sciatica.

TCY was originally developed for seniors and is now a component of the spinal care program at Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in New York City, where Terry Roth Schaff and her colleagues have used it to treat hundreds of patients.

Recommended Reading Terry Schaff, Yoga for a Healthy Spine; Loren Fishman and Ellen Saltonstall, Yoga for Osteoporosis (Norton) and Yoga for Arthritis (Norton).
