    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.

    • Olney Yoga Loft, Olney MD

    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.

    • Westminster, MA - Young at Heart

    Restorative yoga is a form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with, at time, the aid of props (provided or bring your own). The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body. While some restorative yoga poses are beneficial to the entire body, others target specific parts of the body, such as the heart or the lungs.

    • Teaneck, NJ - Kavannah Yoga

    I am very excited to offer Samadhi for Seniors, a new program that is very dear to my heart.

    Here in the US, aging can be a stressful and even depressing process. Seniors are often either invisible or seen as a burgeoning market for various drugs to stave off the dreaded effects of old age. In our youth-oriented society, seniors are sometimes regarded as “dinosaurs” who are not in touch with the realities of today’s fast-paced high-tech world.

    In India, growing older is viewed very differently. There, older people are venerated for their wisdom and life experience. Old age is viewed as a wonderful opportunity to fully pursue spirituality. Now that the responsibilities of the "householder stage of life" are over, seniors can fully devote themselves to spiritual growth through yoga and meditation.

    Samadhi for Seniors is a program to allow seniors to engage in intense spiritual practice, with the goal of coming as close as possible to ultimate spiritual growth. We will be presenting the full array of yogic practices to our senior practitioners.

    Asanas (yoga postures) modified appropriately for seniors, whether frail or active

    Pranayama (yogic breathing techniques)

    Intense meditation

    Mantra Japa (yogic chanting)

    Sound healing

    Yoga Nidra (deep conscious relaxation)

    You will not need to become a Sannyasin (renunciate) or move to an Ashram, of course, as many do in India. The program will take place in a center in your own neighborhood, or in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

    I hope you will join us to deepen your spiritual experience, explore the wonderful dimensions that lie within you, and connect more deeply with yourself and others.

    • Teaneck, NY - Kavannah Yoga

    As we age, we often begin to develop specific physical, emotional, and spiritual issues, which can be greatly helped by yoga. At Kavannah Yoga, our philosophy is that when we reach “senior” status, we now have the opportunity to engage in a much more intensive spiritual quest. “Seniorhood” is an opportunity, not a burden! Of course, this is made more difficult as physical challenges arise. In our Yoga for Seniors class, the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of seniors will all be addressed.

    Chair yoga is beneficial for practitioners of all ages, experience levels, and fitness levels. While it’s beneficial for those who have difficulty getting up and down from the floor, it's also great for people who want to take a yoga break at their desk or in small spaces. 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. Open to ALL levels.

    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.
