Chair Yoga for Adults Adults 16 +

Chair yoga is a modified form of yoga where we practice on chairs. It is

designed for the middle aged or elderly to strengthen and tone muscles,

tendons, joints and glands. You won’t have to get up and down from the

floor but can benefit from postures performed on and around the chair.

Chair yoga is a wonderfully gentle way to keep in shape or get back into

shape. You will learn proper breathing so that your body is using oxygen

at maximum capacity which influences the flow of blood while you are in a

posture. The gentle movements, holding a pose, breath and blood move

to the various joints and systems providing a ‘squeeze and soak’ effect

which is all your body desires to feel good, heal, and offer a sense of wellbeing.

After the first class we will work with 1-3 lb. weights for part of the

class to increase strength and stamina. There will be a short relaxation

and meditation portion toward the end of the class. Come and try our new

chair yoga class and see how great you feel after just one class! Patty

McPhillips is a certified yoga therapist and student of yoga for over 25

years. Bring a mat and a small pillow or blanket. Do not eat for 2 hours

prior to class.

to bring your heart rate up to a safe level. Weight bearing exercises,

stretching, controlled breathing and relaxation complete the class. Please
