Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga, it might not be what you are thinking. In today’s world of back breaking computer work, cross town commuting, texting, lifting, sitting...there are a lot of people who benefit from chair yoga. Stop for a second right now and check your posture. I’m willing to bet that your spine is curved, your belly is soft and your neck is pronating forward. If I’m right, you too could benefit from chair yoga.

 

Chair yoga is about realigning our bodies. It is not about easy, it is about accessibility. Keeping in mind we all have varying physical limitations, Chair Yoga will meet you where you are at. With endless modifications, chair yoga can be as gentle or as challenging as you make it. Chair yoga is available for corporate “wellness in the workplace”, Mindfulness in the classroom, senior

living facilities and so much more. Discover when your body is aligned and your in tune with your breath, how much more productive, stronger your body and clear your mind is.
