Chair Yoga
Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced while sitting in a chair.  It adapts traditional yoga poses so that they can be done making yoga more accessible for people who cannot stand for long periods of time.  As in traditional yoga classes, chair yoga helps to deepen flexibility, strengthen personal body awareness and improve physical and mental fitness. It has helped people with symptoms of health issues such as hypertension, anxiety, fatigue, the general effects of aging as well as those living with and recovering from illness.  As with all fitness classes, participants may want to consult their physician when starting a new exercise routine.
