Chair Yoga is a gentle, non-traditional form of Yoga that reduces strain on limbs and joints. Postures may be done in the chair and/or standing with the support of the chair. Benefits of chair yoga at the Library include: improved strength, improved flexibility, improved coordination, improved stress and pain management, and an opportunity to meet people and socialize. Chair yoga can also lessen the impact of chronic illnesses and pain. This class is suitable for all ages, sizes and physical conditions since the movement can be modified to meet everyone’s needs. The exercises are designed to activate the feet, legs, arms and hands, back, neck region, eyes and brain and will improve circulation, deliver more oxygen to the cells and gradually increase mobility, enhance brain function and improve balance. It is recommended that you wear clothing that is easy to move in and to avoid eating two hours before class or eat a light meal as needed.
This class is being led by Yoga & Pilates For Health & Well Being owner Karen DiRenzo who is has completed 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training and is registered with Yoga Alliance.
