Can't get down on the floor? Well, you don't need to! Chair Yoga adapts yoga poses to your body through creative use of a chair. The chair replaces the yoga mat and becomes an extension of your body. The student is able to warm up their body safely and practice yoga with more support and stability. Poses are done seated on the chair or the chair is used for support during standing poses and balancing. Chair Yoga is suitable for all ages, fitness levels and physical conditions and especially beneficial for people with physical limitations. This is a 1 hour class.

If you have crossed out yoga for fear of falling or discomfort getting up and down from the floor, chair yoga can help you regain your confidence while deriving the benefits of strengthening, stretching, flexibility, balancing and proper breathing.

Therapeutic Yoga blends restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, breath work, and guided meditation techniques in a way that it is an excellent choice for those who need something gentle yet effective for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress. Students can expect to work on the floor and do some standing poses, but there will be props and/or chairs to assist those for whom standing is a stressor. Over the course of the session students will learn to bring breath, awareness and healthy movement into the body starting with the feet and working upward. Students of Therapeutic Yoga may benefit from improved balance, increased range of motion and reduced pain. Therapeutic Yoga is specifically designed for those students suffering from an injury, chronic pain or other condition which makes movement difficult.

This 8 - week class series (16 total sessions) can be taken by someone with or without prior yoga experience as long as they can, or are willing to try to sit on the floor. It is intended to build lifetime skills so the class builds in a basic structure that participants can repeat in home practice. Poses are repeated and reinforced to build skill and confidence, but new challenges are added as students become more comfortable in the class, familiar with yoga, and physically fit.
This specific program has been used in clinical research trials at John Hopkins University to determine its safety and efficacy for arthritis patients. In a 7-year randomized clinical trial, program participation was associated with improved arthritis symptoms, disease biomarkers, physical fitness, psychological functioning and quality of life.
