CHAIR YOGA

 

PRESENTED BY Maria Campbell 

THURSDAY AT 10:00am

This class is suitable for those new to yoga, as well as those who have previous experience, all are welcome! During the entire class we will use the support of a chair, ideal for those who have limited mobility due to various physical limitations and balance considerations. We will begin each practice connecting to our breath & a short meditation. Throughout the practice we’ll continue to focus on pranayama (breath work) to facilitate movement, which is known to increase circulation & blood flow, and help alleviate the discomfort of arthritis. Through various poses we will also work on improving flexibility, strength, and balance crucial in maintaining a healthy active lifestyle. An emphasis will be placed on fostering awareness of the mind-body connection with class ending in deep relaxation - savasana. (To assist your practice (2) yoga blocks & a yoga strap are helpful, but not necessary.)
