About the Creator of Chair Yoga

Lakshmi Voelker

Lakshmi Voelker, E-RYT500, C-IAYT, YACEP, KYT, AY Ambassador is a certified Kripalu Yoga instructor, a member of the Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapists, and holder of other certifications.

With her chair yoga (often referred to as accessible yoga), Lakshmi was able bring adaptive fitness and exercise programs to those who could not benefit from traditional activities due to age or limiting physical/mental conditions or environment/location.

She created Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga in 1982 when one of her thirty-something students was stricken with arthritis and could no longer get down on the floor to practice Yoga. In 1999, Lakshmi authored and produced her widely acclaimed
“Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga™: The Sitting Mountain Series” CD/cassette.

Following the success of her CD, she then created the first in a series of innovative Chair Yoga Fitness and Exercise DVDs in 2007. She made breakthroughs in two areas: extensive step-by-step instruction of each class and providing multiple levels of flexibility so all poses are accessible.

Lakshmi now certifies teachers worldwide and offers Web Wellness Classes online.
