This practice involves gentle stretches and strength-building supported by a chair, coordinated with breath awareness, guided meditation, and a friendly welcoming atmosphere. These classes are intended for adults ages 55+ and for anyone who would benefit from the support of a chair during their yoga practice. There is no need to get up or down from the floor, and any standing postures are supported by the chair with the option to practice from remaining seated. 

Chairs, yoga blocks and straps are provided. I suggest wearing comfortable clothing that does not restrict your range of motion.
