CHAIR YOGA

PRESENTED BY Leslie Paoletti,RYT

THURSDAY AT 1:00pm

Chair Yoga is a wonderful way to increase flexibility, build strength, and reduce stress! This class is for beginners, as well as those familiar with yoga.  We will practice our yoga poses on, or with the aid of a chair,  making it ideal for varying levels of mobility.  We will work to connect our mind, our body and our breath to increase our energy and improve our circulation.  The class will flow through breathing, practicing poses, and finishing with quiet relaxation.   (A yoga strap and two yoga blocks are helpful, but not necessary).

 

CHAIR YOGA HAS RESUMED
