Chair Yoga is a version of yoga utilizing a chair as the main prop. Chair Yoga makes yoga accessible to those who may not be able to participate in standing exercise and allows them the full experience of a yoga class while sitting in a chair or using the chair as a source of support. The body benefits from Chair Yoga through increased strength, flexibility and stamina. The mind benefits as yoga helps to improve concentration, calms the emotions and clears mental chatter. The spirit will benefit by experiencing expanded awareness and an encouragement toward peace, love and compassion for others.
In addition to engaging in physical movement or “asanas”, our Chair Yoga program will provide instruction in pranayama or “mindful breathing” and offer brief rounds of mediation and visualization.
