For ALL Yoga Teachers and Students!

Chair Yoga adapts traditional yoga poses so that they can be done with a chair for support, making yoga more accessible for all people.

Our society is aging and there are many people unable to practice a standard yoga class.

Chair yoga also provides a gentle but effective practice for those with mobility or disability issues.

The chair takes the place of the yoga mat, and poses are seated or supported by the chair. You get a warm-up, stretching and strengthening, whether you’re coming off a sports injury, challenged by the physical limits of aging, or have been sitting for too many hours at your desk.
