219 Darcie Clark: 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.
