Chair Yoga is simply yoga done on a chair and is often a great place to begin yoga for people who have weight challenges, disabilities, recovering from an injury, pregnant, or those who have a challenge getting down on the floor for various reasons such as age or being in a crowded work environment.
Chair yoga brings yoga's integration of the body, mind and spirit to those unable to practice traditional mat yoga. With Chair Yoga, the chair replaces the yoga mat so one can enjoy the many health and wellness benefits of yoga right on the chair in the comfort and convenience of their own home or office. Chair Yoga benefits those with arthritis, carpal-tunnel syndrome, chronic pain, diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, and osteopenia. Chair Yoga is also ideal for those who sit at a desk for long periods of time, and for those interested in learning ways to relieve stress by stretching and breathing during a busy work day. You will leave feeling free of physical limitations and with a profound state of harmony, balance, and healing with this innovative approach to traditional mat yoga. Suitable for all levels and abilities.
