Chair Yoga makes yoga possible for everyone! Especially for those with limited mobility due to pain, weight, pregnancy or advanced age. Chair Yoga is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. Traditional yoga poses are modified to make yoga accessible to those who can’t stand, or have trouble moving easily to floor positions.

This workshop consists of twists, hip stretches, forward bends, mild backbends, shoulder and neck rotations, and lengthening of the spine to improve posture. Aside from gaining flexibility, Chair Yoga is designed to improve muscle tone, breathing habits and balance. If you’ve been leery about trying yoga due to lack of mobility or balance, here’s your chance to get all the benefits of yoga in a gentle and supportive way!
