Here’s an opportunity for those of you who say you’re not flexible enough or can’t get on the floor to do yoga. Now you can still reap the many benefits of a yoga practice.
Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair or standing using a chair for support. The postures and movements are easily adapted to the chair and are suitable for almost everyone. Even those who are more “able-bodied” may be very surprised at what a thorough whole-body toning you feel at the end of the class. In addition, chair yoga classes are a more complete form of conditioning the body because they incorporate proper breathing techniques. The teacher covers beneficial breathing techniques along with beginning meditation that becomes a key aspect of reaching one’s optimum health. Deep breathing more fully oxygenates your body as well as massaging your organs. Following the breathing techniques, not only during your chair yoga, but throughout your daily life, can significantly enhance your health and well-being.
