Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced from a seated position on a chair. The asanas or yoga postures are modified to fit a seated posture. There are a few standing postures to work on balance and bending in three planes of motion. The chair provides a stable foundation of support under the body as opposed to standing postures practiced in a flow yoga class. On occasion the class will work with reflexology of foot to improve balance, as well as tapping exercise for the hands to invigorate the heart and lung meridian for overall wellbeing.
