Yoga is an exercise routine that improves balance and strength. In Chair Yoga the chair replaces the yoga mat and becomes an extension of your body allowing you to take full advantage of yoga’s fitness and health potential. Even if you are in a wheelchair, you can receive the many benefits of chair yoga–the integration of body, mind, and spirit that keeps the yoga practitioner healthy and vital. Chair Yoga allows you to practice many yoga poses, deep breathing techniques, and meditation. Chair yoga is one of the gentlest forms of yoga covering standing, seated and prone postures, improving musculoskeletal fitness and flexibility, building strength and relaxing your body and mind for overall health and well-being.
