Course Description

Also known as seated yoga, Chair Yoga is ideal for the desk-bound, travelers, golfers, and those in rehabilitation or physically challenged. Chair Yoga will introduce you to a series of the most effective yoga stretches, all done from the comfort of your chair. You do not need to stand up to reap the benefits of yoga. Your body and your mind will thank you for learning about and practicing chair yoga! With seated yoga, “the numerous benefits include increased strength and flexibility, improved circulation, and experience with breathing and relaxation techniques,” as noted by Dr. Andrew Weil, today’s guru of healthy aging. NOTE: This unique program is offered in 1-hour segments of seated stretching and deep breathing to help maintain or build strength and flexibility while relieving the stress and tension associated with sitting for too long.
