Chair Yoga Health & Fitness- Sports,
Health & Fitness- Sports,
Health & Fitness- Other
This program will be geared towards people who need the assistance of a chair to develop their yoga practice. Seated exercises as well as standing postures with the use of a yoga mat (students must bring their mats) and a chair will be performed by student and teacher, in addition to a short meditation to begin and end the class. A focus on wellness and timing the movement to the breath to elicit the "relaxation response" will help restore health, flexibility, balance, and mobility to the students' bodies. In addition, yoga has been proven to have many mental benefits as well including reductions in stress, anxiety, anger, sick days from work, time in the hospital, and substance abuse. Conversely, there is a corresponding increase in health and well-being, immune function, empathy, compassion, focus, attentiveness, and more.
