A gentle practice suitable for seniors, anyone who finds getting up and down from the floor difficult, and those looking to increase range of motion, build balance and increase flexibility gently and with support.
In Chair Yoga, all the poses have been modified to be practiced sitting on a chair, or using a chair for support. There is no getting up and down from the floor required. Expect to gently stretch and move all areas of the body. Our sequences include seated neck, shoulder and upper body stretching, some gentle twists, and energizing seated sun salutations to get us warm. We follow this with a short sequence of standing poses to build strength and balance (the chair is used to assist with balance, and the poses can be modified to be practiced seated if preferred). We finish with stretches and movements for the hips, legs, ankles and feet before ending with a lovely relaxation and short meditation
Mats are available to rent ($2) if you do not have your own
