About this event

Description

Practice yoga using a chair instead of a mat! This class is designed for those who want to take a yoga class, but have difficulty getting up off of and down onto the floor. The chair is used in sitting postures to help stretch and warm up the body and open the shoulders and neck. This is followed by a series of standing poses, using the chair for support in standing and balancing, when needed. The exercises are specifically designed and sequenced for those who want to stay healthy, keep moving and maintain their independence as they age, as well as for those with limited mobility or movement disorders. These exercises will safely improve flexibility, strength and balance and will help to maintain mobility, without the impact and stress of traditional exercises. Beginners are welcome and no previous yoga experience is needed.


PLEASE BRING HAND SANITIZER TO CLASS FOR YOUR PERSONAL USE. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO USE THE COMMUNITY MATS, BLOCKS, RESISTANCE STRAPS PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN.
