What is Chair Yoga?

Chair yoga is a gentle yoga class where we spend the class in the comfort of a chair and combine exercises, stretching, breathing, relaxation and meditation.  These classes improve strength, flexibility, range of motion, and overall mobility.  Like all yoga classes chair yoga helps people develop more self-awareness, self-regulation and self-care.

When we are balanced we feel better physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Who can do Chair Yoga?
