Yoga Holistic Health Retreat – Chair Yoga Weekend

with Swami Sivasankariananda

December 20 - 22, 2019

Description

Every body can do yoga. Chair Yoga is safe and effective for all ages and levels of health and ability. It tends to be a gentler (and fun) class designed for those with an acute or chronic illness, healing from an injury, or with limited mobility. Practicing Yoga in a chair can be beneficial for:

  • increasing flexibility and relieving stiffness.
  • improving balance.
  • building body awareness and overall muscular strength.
  • building bone strength.
  • improving concentration and motivation/determination.
  • increasing energy and stamina/endurance.
  • developing confidence.
  • improving willpower and maintaining a healthy weight.
  • minimizing anxiety and hypertension.
  • fostering a positive attitude.
  • enjoying a sense of community.

 Classes includes focus on quality of breath and centering, breathing exercise for balancing energy, gentle warm-up stretching coordinating with the breath, followed by modifications of yoga poses appropriate for the level and goals of the participant. Classes are taught sitting in chairs (or wheelchairs) or using chairs as props.
