Exploring Asana in My Wheelchair with Cherie Hotchkiss

People who use wheelchairs, for a better quality of life, can practice asana in their wheelchair, along with the other limbs of yoga. Obviously, there are specific issues not covered in a traditional yoga certification. This class, appropriate for wheelchair users as well as teachers who share classes for this population, or would like to, will include wheelchair etiquette, safety, a 45 minute asana practice in a wheelchair and time for questions.

Yoga instructors who have never used a wheelchair, and invite people who do use wheelchairs to their classes, are encouraged to rent a wheelchair to experience this unique practice for themselves.

Recommended props: 

  • 2 chairs, preferably without arms, or 1 ideally a wheelchair (can be rented for a day from a durable medical equipment store)
  • 2 blocks and/or large bolster
  • 1 or 2 blankets
  • Second rolled yoga mat or same size bolster
