Instructor: Gina Komanac
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!
This chair yoga follows the Hatha Yoga style. The Hatha Yoga style introduce gentle stretches, deep breathing, relaxation, meditation and limbering of the joints. Hatha yoga can really help benefit students with all movement including focus on back/core strengthening. The balancing standing poses can help prevent injury. Stretches' with ankles, knees and hip help with mobility and greater flexibility. The standing poses for seniors help with balance and better mobility.
