EVERYBODY CAN DO YOGA

If you sit at a desk all day, if you are rehabilitating from injuries, if you have issues getting up from the floor and down to the floor, if you have arthritic joints/limited joint mobility, if you would just like a yoga class where you know you are not going to jump from one pose to another…then this is the class for you! This form of yoga uses a chair as a prop. We will practice either sitting in a chair or standing and using the chair for support. We will experience increased strength and flexibility. We will restore and increase our balance. We will breathe and relax. We will not be wearing shoes in class. Please do not eat a heavy meal for at least an hour before class.
