Chair Yoga Lesson Plan Bundle I
Instant Access ♦ Mac & Windows Compatible
Hello, I am George Watts, a BWY yoga teacher and the brains behind the online Yoga Lesson Planner. I am thrilled to introduce the Chair Yoga Plans bundle, which I personally created for my yoga classes. It’s an all-in-one solution for your chair yoga class, workshop, or one-to-one session needs.
Each plan comes in three versions: short, long, and stream. The short version is perfect for taking with you to class, as it contains only the essential information. The long version, on the other hand, is an in-depth guide that you can use to practice the plan before class or hand out to your one-to-one students. By sharing this comprehensive version, you’ll immediately showcase your professionalism and expertise.
Lastly, the stream version is a video stream of the lesson plan. It’s an excellent resource for those who prefer a visual guide or who cannot attend your class in person. Don’t miss the chance to take your chair yoga practice to the next level with these comprehensive lesson plans.
As a bonus, you’ll receive 20 chair yoga class handouts that I created for my own Chair Yoga classes. You’ll also receive my chair yoga marketing plan, chair yoga workshop schedule template, chair yoga workshop flyer and registration form template.
Below is an overview of one of the 6 chair yoga lesson plans that you’ll receive.
Class Title: Triangle Peak Pose & Exploring The Third Limb Of Yoga
Class Aim: To give a 60-minute chair yoga class with a build-up towards Triangle Pose (peak pose). Use the Triangle symbolism (number 3) to talk about the Third Limb Of Yoga (Asanas). The bundle includes a Three Limbs Of Yoga Class Handout that you can give to your students.
Class Objectives: By the end of the lesson students will be able to:
- Perform the chair yoga version of Triangle Pose
- State one or two benefits of Triangle Pose

You can use the 6 ‘chair yoga lesson plans’ as teaching aids and/or give them out to your students as class handouts.
Chair Yoga Class Marketing Tips
As the creator of the Chair Yoga Lesson Plan Bundle (that’s me up there in Doodle form), I want to help you promote your class or workshop to a wider audience. That’s why I’ve shared several of my chair yoga marketing tips to assist you in attracting more students.
To start, I suggest having an elevator pitch that describes chair yoga’s benefits. You can say something like: “The chair replaces the yoga mat and becomes an extension of your body, allowing you to take full advantage of Yoga’s mind, body, and spirit workout. You will learn to enjoy being on a chair and not see it as a limitation.”
Once you have your pitch, you can use it in your chair yoga flyers, chair yoga marketing plan, and chair yoga web page (which comes as a bonus with the bundle) to reach specific groups.
For instance, office workers who spend most of their day sitting at a desk can benefit from chair yoga. Practising a chair yoga pose every 30 minutes can keep their minds and bodies alert and flexible, increasing their job enjoyment and productivity while reducing absenteeism due to fatigue or illness.
For people with arthritis or chronic back pain, chair yoga can help reduce pain and stiffness, making it a great alternative to traditional yoga.
Chair yoga can also aid those with Type II Diabetes by controlling blood sugar levels and increasing muscle tissue. For people with disabilities, it can boost self-esteem and help them overcome additional challenges they face.
Additionally, chair yoga can slow down or even reverse osteoporosis, while also providing exercise alternatives for overweight individuals, reducing stress and comfort-eating.
Finally, the “Chair Yoga Lesson Plan Bundle” is an excellent resource for seniors, who may be at risk of falls, and want a fun and challenging workout. Even able-bodied people who practice chair yoga correctly will feel the benefits of this practice.
It’s also good to know a few one-liner benefits that you can tell prospects of your chair yoga classes.
So, here are 21 benefits of chair yoga:
- Increases flexibility and mobility
- Strengthens muscles, particularly in the core and lower body
- Improves posture and balance
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Enhances mood and overall well-being
- Promotes relaxation and mindfulness
- Boosts circulation and improves cardiovascular health
- Increases lung capacity and respiratory function
- Reduces inflammation and joint pain
- Improves digestion and bowel function
- Helps lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels
- Supports weight loss and healthy weight management
- Helps prevent falls and injuries in older adults
- Provides a low-impact exercise option for people with injuries or disabilities
- Enhances mental clarity and cognitive function
- Boosts immunity and supports overall health
- Can be practised anywhere, including at home, work, or while travelling
- Requires no special equipment, aside from a chair
- Helps to counteract the negative effects of sitting for long periods of time
- Promotes better sleep and reduces insomnia
- Provides an enjoyable and social activity for people of all ages and abilities.
Don’t hesitate to leverage these marketing tips and reach out to these groups to grow your chair yoga classes or workshops.
“I’m currently a BWY student in training to become a yoga teacher. One of our assignments is to create a 10 week course. I chose to base mine on PD and mobility disorders as my mum had recently been diagnosed with PD and I wanted to do something to help her. When I came across George’s website I was blown away. It has so much fab data, lesson plans, flyers, Booking forms and on and on and on. I truly would recommend his yoga kits to anyone and it was so easy to order and obtain – sheer bliss…it was instant. I placed my order, paid for it and within 5 mins the Chair kit was available to me. I’m still going through all the lovely documents in the kit but what I have seen and read so far it has really helped me get my head round structuring the 10 Chair yoga classes. Thank you George for all your great work.”
