February 13 @ 9:45 am - 10:00 am

Chair Yoga is the way to ​go when you are reluctant to get into the yoga clothes and get on the mat – challenge yourself with Chair Yoga.

Chair Yoga is a gentle yoga practice that adapts various traditional postures for practice in the chair or with the support of a chair. It  involves breath-work, meditation and gentle stretches; all of which release stress and tension from both body and mind. This form of yoga helps those who are aging or have disabilities but is also used in office settings to relieve stress right in our own office chairs, even during the workday. The practice increases flexibility, strength and body awareness. It soothes the nervous system and helps to calm the busy mind. It also decreases the potential for injury due to repetitive strain in the workplace!
