White Chair in an Empty Room

CHAIR-CENTREED PRACTICES

TWO VERY PRACTICAL CPD DAYS

CREATING MOVEMENT POSSIBILITIES

LIVE ONLINE  |  28 NOV 2021 & 9 JAN 2022 |  £220

Chairs have seen an upsurge of acceptance and use in all sorts of practice settings. They can be used thoughtfully for every body and every nuance of mobility. We've put together two very practical CPD days where we will additionally reflect on the somatic and proprioceptive experience of the body and its kinesphere when situated in a chair.

 

On Day 1 we will focus on being able to move in/out of a chair independently, and on Day 2 on being able to move independently in a chair, with and without wheels, with specialist input from our Guest Tutor.

  • Update your use of chairs in regular and specialist class settings.

  • Explore a somatic approach to adapting practices for the body and its kinesphere.

  • Consider chair management in a variety of class settings.

  • Reflect on specific experiences of wheelchair enabled bodies.
     

While these are stand-alone study days for teachers, they can form part of your elective content on our 300H teacher training programme.
