Chair Yoga Resources

Paloma Chavez

dickenson.jpgLast month we began to look into this adapted form of yoga practice. As we continued to research this area, we found that it has been around for awhile and has been accessed by all ages and ranges of mobility.

From those students who are being challenged by arthritis ,MS, recovering from a recent injury or for those seniors who are having a little extra trouble with floor exercises, chair yoga has become a valuable alternative.

So we gathered up a few more resources in this area. Although it may still be difficult to find a specific class in your area, typically a Gentle Yoga Class could be a good place to begin. Speak with the teacher about any limitations you may be experiencing prior to attending and they are likely to make some adjustments for you.
