Adaptive Movement and Chair Yoga
Darcie and Kathryn talk about adaptive movement, non-dogmatic approaches for all abilities, and chair yoga. Chair yoga is more than using a chair for conventional poses. Creating an accessible class requires teachers to re-imagine the practice and truly learn to meet participants where they are. Darcie offers wisdom from over 15 years working with all levels of practitioners and training teachers.

More About Darcie
Darcie Clark has been a leader in Adaptive Yoga since 2006. Specializing in making the yoga practice accessible to people of all ages, body types, and abilities, she’s taught yoga in community centers, retirement homes, and workplaces. Since the launch of her online studio in March 2020, Darcie incorporates the use of a chair in many of her classes as a way to make them accessible to more people. For over 15 years, Darcie has worked with and learned from a range of private clients, some of whom have chronic health issues, movement restrictions, and use a wheelchair. In November 2020 Darcie began offering her course Adaptive Yoga: How to Teach Chair Yoga online to yoga and movement teachers. Her hope is for every yoga teacher to develop the skills to embrace a more physically diverse student community.
