Chair yoga lets us get yoga benefits from the security of a firm chair. We still have to do the work, but we are seated on a chair or standing next to our chair with a hand on it for support. This makes the practice available to those of us who can’t easily get up and down from the floor, have had knee or hip replacements, suffer from dizziness, and struggle with balance — lots of us!
With practice, our bodies get stronger and more flexible. Our breathing slows and deepens. Our postural alignment improves. We begin to cultivate an inner field of quiet and self-compassion. All these benefits bring vitality to all of our systems and a feeling of being at home in our bodies.
Chairs are provided. Please wear comfortable clothing, in layers, for warm and cool conditions. Elastic waistbands are important so there is no breath obstruction. Sneakers are good, and shoes may stay on during practice. If you have yoga blocks, please bring them. No mat is needed.
