    Chair yoga is a general term for practices that modify yoga poses so that they can be done while seated in a chair.

Many of the basic body mechanics of the individual postures are retained, no matter the stance of the practitioner. Great fun for all!

        There are many levels of ability among the members of this class – members from raw beginners to those who have painted for more years than they care to remember. Most of the time, the same subjects (flowers, scenes, etc.) are taught to all levels, but the pace varies for each level. More time is spent with basic brush strokes, mixing of and loading of paints for the beginners and a greater variety of styles for the most advanced members.

        Chair yoga is a general term for practices that modify yoga poses so that they can be done while seated in a chair. These modifications make yoga accessible to people who cannot stand or lack the mobility to move easily from standing to seated to supine positions. Many of the basic body mechanics of the individual postures are retained, no matter the stance of the practitioner. Great fun for all!
