Wall and Chair Yoga Teacher Training Course

US Yoga Alliance CEU Unit


“Props help to perform the asana with ease...The student understands and learns asana faster on props as the brain remains passive...They help accurately without mistakes.” (In 70 Glorious years of Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar, page 391)

Wall Rope and Chair Yoga allows us to unfold the space of an asana, create new understanding and openings in asanas by guiding us the direction of movement, that may otherwise be too difficult to practice. Props let us stay longer in an asana, thus permitting deeper penetration and opening in inner body regions. Besides, Wall Rope and Chair can open the joints, esp the spine through anti-gravity actions.


How to use props, including the chairs, blocks, bolsters, belts and the Yoga Wall.

Sequences are taught as a series of poses on and off the wall that highlight specific methods of restoring overall health and flexibility.  

How to incorporate a prop into your personal practice and support student’s in theirs. Understand the deeper effects of a well-sequenced, prop based yoga practice.

Teaching methodologies will also be explored so that students learn multiple approaches to transmitting this information onto others.

How to create a safe practice environment.
