A class designed for seniors and those with limited mobility but anyone will benefit from this hour. You won’t need a mat, only a sturdy chair. You will learn simple but effective meditation and breathing techniques that you can do at home to reduce anxiety and breathe more freely. You will also be guided through gentle movements to release tension in the muscles supporting the spine and shoulders as well as some balance and strengthening exercises using the support of the chair for safety and stability. Everything in this class is optional so you can do as little or as much as you like. You will leave breathing easier and feeling calmer and more at home in your body. Yoga can help to reduce depression, increase oxygenation and circulation in the body and improve sleep. No prior experience is needed. All ages and abilities are welcome.
