This class introduces a wide range of key postures that help build towards an experienced yoga practice. Warm up stretches and breathing exercises may be practiced seated on the floor, standing up, and lying down. Modifications to full postures and the use of props, such as yoga blocks and straps, are offered for assistance. Beginners yoga helps provide relaxation, improves flexibility, balance, posture, increases strength, and enhances self-awareness.
In Chair Yoga the focus is on warming up the body with small movements and breath awareness with the use of a chair for support. You may remain seated for the duration of class, or work towards a short, modified standing series with hip and heart openers, forward stretching, and balancing. The class finishes with gentle seated stretches and relaxation. All levels are welcome.
