Time: 9:30AM - 10:30AM
This 1 hour class is modified for seniors preferring to practice their yoga seated in a chair. Poses are done seated or using the chair for support during standing poses. Chair yoga is suitable for all ages, fitness levels and physical conditions.
As we grow older, muscles shorten, tighten and weaken. Lack of weight-bearing activity contributes to osteoporosis and lack of stretching leads to joint deterioration, arthritis and loss of flexibility. These can combine to create poor posture, back and neck pain and loss of range of motion which limit daily activity.
The mindful stretching, deep breathing and relaxation techniques learned through yoga will help increase circulation, relieve tension, improve range of motion and increase breath capacity.
Yoga classes with Sherill are gentle, slow-moving classes using safe and appropriate postures that harness the therapeutic benefits of yoga in a comfortable and nurturing environment.
