Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga

Chair yoga class offers all the benefits of yoga on a mat but without having to get on and off the floor. We will primarily focus on improving flexibility of the spine followed by the rest of the joints and muscles. There will be gentle movements with an emphasis on breath and mindfulness/meditation, improving breathing and overall health, well-being, and ability to focus. This class is great for those with sedentary occupations, limited mobility, recovering from injuries or surgery, or who are just new to yoga and need a safe non-intimidating starting point. The Arthritis Foundation has approved chair yoga to ease the aches and pains of those suffering from arthritis as well as providing many other proven benefits to health and well-being. 

The class is led by Whitney Arvin who will be accredited in the Foundations of Yoga Therapy in June after completion of an extensive teacher training program.  She has been a certified yoga instructor since 2010 and is committed to sharing its benefits whenever possible. 

The class will begin April 18th at 10:30-11:15 in the media room and run for a trial of 4 weeks.  If there is interest the class will continue regularly on the schedule each week- Tuesdays at 10:30.  It is $8/ drop in or $25 for all 4 classes. 

E-mail info@aldersgateum.org if you are interested.
