About this event

Chair yoga is an inclusive and accessible form of yoga that can be practiced by people of all ages and abilities and incorporates all elements of a traditional yoga practice to support the physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of students.


This workshop will include a short experience of Chair Yoga and information about an approach to adapting Yoga to the chair so that the essence of Yoga is honoured. There will be time for questions and discussion.

This workshop will provide you with an opportunity to consider how to teach yoga to the large (and rapidly growing) proportion of the community that cannot or choose not to practice yoga on a mat.

There will be allocated time at the end of the session for questions/ discussion.

About the Presenter:

Robyn is a yoga teacher and therapist with more than a decade’s experience who teaches in a wide range of settings including school, community, corporate, aged care/dementia and correctional environments as well as with special needs (NDIS) clients.

She works one to one and with small groups as a yoga therapist, exploring physical, mental and emotional conditions with clients, co-creating tailored practices using the tools of yoga for health, wellbeing and healing.

Her chair yoga is especially suited to pre and post-natal women, people recovering from surgery and those in the corporate world so they can access yoga in an easier, accessible way.

She offers a flexible suite of yoga styles and levels to cater to all kinds of people and tailors her instruction to individual needs. Her clients often report feeling taller, stronger and sleeping well after just a few classes.

With continued practice, Robyn’s clients develop more self-awareness and self-regulation and ultimately, are empowered to practice for themselves without depending on her.

Robyn conducts yoga classes for people with dementia and always works to ensure she honours the person who is there, empowering them when, sadly, they are at a stage of life with very little power.

In 2020, Robyn was awarded a Churchill Fellowship for the exploration of yoga for cognitive stimulation in people with a diagnosis of dementia.

Robyn completed a four-year term on the Board of Yoga Australia, the peak body for yoga in Australia and is now a senior teacher, registered mentor and part of the Yoga Australia Council of Advisors.

She trains yoga teachers in her 50-hour registered chair yoga course.

Robyn also serves as a palliative care volunteer.
