Pender Island Community Hall: 55+ Maintain Your Independence program

4418 Bedwell Harbour Road, Pender Island 

Drop-in $7 per class. 

This practice involves gentle stretches and strength-building supported by a chair, coordinated with breath awareness, guided meditation, and a friendly welcoming atmosphere for adults ages 55+. 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. If you find that your feet do not easily reach the floor from seated, you may wish to bring a couple chip foam blocks or a thick mat to help the floor reach your feet (contact for more info if needed).

*Please note that I am substitute teaching this class for November and December. It is planned to continue as an ongoing weekly drop-in with the regular teacher Joy come January 2023.
