What is Chair Yoga?
Chair Yoga is a form of traditional Hatha Yoga performed with the support of a chair. Classes include both seated and standing postures along with breathing exercises and a concluding guided meditation. While many people tend to think of Chair Yoga as being strictly for senior citizens and folks with limited mobility, it can actually be an extremely beneficial practice for even the most experienced yogi or yogini, offering a new way of approaching and experiencing many traditional Yoga postures.
Like traditional yoga, Chair Yoga is a mind, body, spirit practice that offers many benefits that can help to ease many of the physical and emotional challenges a woman experiences throughout her life cycle. Some of these benefits include:
-Increased muscle and bone strength
-Enhanced immune function
-Enhanced mind/body awareness
-Improved hormonal balance
-Improved sense of empowerment
-Managing and healing the effects of trauma
