Chair Yoga

Crave yoga's benefits - but short on time? Why not fit in a yoga class on your lunch hour!

Chair Yoga takes you through a series of yoga poses, thus easing the tension in hands, neck, shoulders, back, hips, legs and feet, followed by yogic breathing and relaxation techniques to calm the mind. You will leave class feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. This is an all level class suitable for everyone.

Explore breathing exercises, as well as postures (standing, seated, and on the floor) designed to keep you relaxed and limber. This class is great for anyone who feels overwhelmed and stressed and wants to learn how to slow down; for people who sit at a desk all day; and for people with stiff, aging or injured bodies. Tame your stress and enjoy a better quality of life!
