Yoga Vista Academy made a assessment earlier in August for people to evaluate if they could figure out the beats to music and the ability to teach a Chair Yoga Dance routine. Amazing. This then led you to evaluate if you be interested in becoming a Chair Yoga Dance instructor.
I had been curious about this training, especially after taking the amazing Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care training with them. So I knew training would be awesome.
Sherry took you through different methods in evaluating music. Breaking it down to beats, to chorus/verse/intro/outro, listening and reading the lyrics, then coming up with backstories why one likes the song, and teaching the chorus to the students.
Part of the certification process is to do one of Sherry’s routines, and then come up with one of your own. You had to break down the lyrics and map out the moves according to the Chair Yoga Dance moves in the eight song library, provided to you in the training.
Here is the routine that I mapped, taught, and presented out on youtube.
Then I chose one of the routines in the eight song library, to teach back according to the instructions given for getting certified in Chair Yoga Dance.
