Chair Yoga for Healthy Aging
September 15th – October 20th, 2020
Zoom with Ann * Tuesdays at 11am
Pull up a chair to practice self-care! All ages and mobility levels are welcome. Learn calming breathing practices, refreshing stretches, and specific yoga poses adapted for the chair, including some standing poses. Cap it off with a relaxation practice and tips for how to take your yoga practice into your everyday routine.
Our 60-min classes are designed to develop and maintain the strength, flexibility, balance and agility needed to stay active as we age. We’ll also explore healthy aging topics such as joint health, strong bones, better balance, mental focus, improved posture, and more. And we hope to create a space where you feel supported exactly as you are, with expert guidance on how to progress safely towards your wellness goals in both mind and body.
We need stable routine, and we need fellowship. Join our Chair Yoga community for the entire fall session from September 15th-October 20th to receive specialized chair yoga feedback and personal practice tips each week. (Or drop in to individual classes as your schedule allows.)

The posture of yoga is steady and easy. It is realized by relaxing one’s effort and resting like the cosmic serpent on the waters of infinity.Patanjali
