Chair Yoga - Class description:
If you want to experience the benefits yoga has to offer but are concerned about the level of fitness required to move around, bend and get up and down, then perhaps a Chair Yoga class may be for you!
Chair yoga is a slower paced class that incorporates traditional seated and standing yoga poses supported by a chair. The use of the chair as a prop can take away the worry you may feel to start a regular yoga practice. While most of the class activity is performed seated in a chair, for those who are able, some standing (with support) and floor movements may be given. For those who are unable, alternate poses appropriate for remaining seated will be given.
Yoga is for every body regardless of size, fitness, age or ability. The benefits of yoga are all there with chair yoga - strengthening of the body, relaxation of the mind, enhanced balance and coordination and improved range of motion all in a non-competitive, social environment.
