CHAIR YOGA- No prior yoga experience needed -
Wednesday - 10:30 to 11:30 am
Yoga doesn't need to be complicated to be effective. This chair Yoga class is a fantastic opportunity to exercise for people who don't want or have difficulty getting down on the floor and prefer the support of a chair. It's also a class suitable for people who have difficulty bearing weight on their wrists following an accident or because of osteoarthritis.
How is a chair yoga class going?
We start the class sitting on a chair doing joint rotations, gentle forward bends, spine twists and stretching arms and legs.
When we stand, we practice balance poses with one or both hands on the back of the chair as support. For younger and more active seniors we’ll just use the chair as an optional prop.
We don’t lie down on our fronts or backs like in a regular yoga class.
Most of the time, classes include breathwork exercises to increase awareness of breathing and lung capacity.
At the end of the class, we always take the time to do a conscious relaxing.
Before starting a yoga practice, a general check-up with a doctor is recommended, especially for anyone who has not exercised for some time or who has ongoing health problems such as high blood pressure, heart condition or osteoporosis.
What do you need?
Comfortable clothing that does not restrict your movement. Don't wear anything tight around the waist. This will bother your stomach during some of the bending or twisting movements.
It's also nice to be barefoot so you can move your ankles and toes freely.
