Studio Chair Yoga

From March 02, 10:30 am until 11:30 am

A yoga practice suitable for seniors, anyone who finds getting up and down from the floor difficult, and anyone looking to increase range of motion, build balance and increase flexibility gently and with support.

PLEASE BRING A YOGA BLOCK IF YOU HAVE ONE, AND A BLANKET. 

What to expect:

Yogis using a chair: In this session yoga 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.
If you are not using a chair and can get to the floor comfortably,

Expect to gently stretch and move all areas of the body as well as increasing heart rate through supported movements with the breath and some strengthening postures.

Sequences include seated neck, shoulder and upper body stretching, some gentle twists, and energizing gentle seated or standing half sun salutations to warm up.
These are followed by a 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).
The session closes with stretches and movements for the hips, legs, ankles and feet before ending with a lovely relaxation and short meditation.

Price:

10 class pass: $100 ($10/class)
5 class pass: $55 ($11/class)
Single class pass/drop in $12
