Adaptive Chair Yoga

Top 10 Chair Yoga Positions for Seniors [Infographic]

Facilitated by Ellen Levine

Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 pm. ($15 per class or $12 per class if paid upfront)

Adaptive Yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair or standing using a chair for support and balance.

This style of yoga is a great practice for everyone, as it deepens flexibility and strengthens personal body awareness.   With the aid of a chair, the participant can learn many kinds of yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and ways of relaxation, often creating greater physical and mental fitness.

It has helped people with the symptoms of many health issues including hypertension (high blood pressure), anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, vertigo (medical), multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, osteopenia, carpal tunnel syndrome, clinical depression, and chronic pain. As well as helping healthy individuals maintain a level of health and vitality as we age.

Chair Yoga, although a gentle form of yoga, still incorporates all the principles of other traditions of yoga: breathing exercises, gentle introspective movements and quiet contemplation and meditation. Complicated maneuvers and complex movements are not present in a chair yoga class. Within these classes, you will cover standing (if available to the participant) and seated postures. for those able to reach the floor there are options to do some of the class on the floor.  For those unable to reach the floor, the floor is brought to the participant using the chair. These classes are structured so that both people with no familiarity with yoga as well as people versed in the yogic tradition can participate.
