Chair Yoga provides a safe and welcoming space for those with limited mobility, who experience trouble getting up and down, or who want to explore a new approach to having a meaningful and powerful yoga practice.
Included are seven classes of varied length and content. The classes can be taken individually, or combined to create a personalized routine that works for you. Three of the videos are 10-15 minute movement classes filled with modified sun salutations, forward folds, and warrior postures. The intention behind each of the three classes is different: one is geared towards an energetic morning class, another is for unwinding at night time, and another is intended for any time.
The two 5-10 minute classes focus entirely on breath work and meditation. These are suitable for quick breaks to reset and recenter during busy days, or they can be added to the beginning or end of any of the other classes to amplify your mind-body connection.
And lastly, the two 20-25 minute classes allow us to spend more time in our practice. One is a more movement-based class where we use the chair to build strength and balance from standing instead of seated. The other class is restorative, allowing us to access the softer side of the practice with the chair or on the floor and with the support of comfy props.
Remember: props and modifications do not make it any less of a yoga practice. If you’re breathing, moving, mindful, and connected, you are practicing yoga.
