Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga in which poses are performed while seated and with the aid of a chair. This yoga is suitable for all levels of abilities; standing is optional. It is an excellent class for beginners, seniors, individuals with recent injuries, balance or coordination issues, limited mobility and disabilities, and those who have difficulty or do not want to get up and down on the floor. Chair yoga helps reduce stress while increasing flexibility, range of motion, circulation and strength, balance and coordination, and lung capacity. This class incorporates breathing exercises, simple visual meditation techniques, gentle stretching, easy yoga postures, and a final relaxation.
