Chair Yoga (Online)

Wednesday 9:00 am – 10:15 am

This chair class is for everyone! Put simply, a chair is just another prop. Like blocks and straps it allows the freedom to access the poses, support your body and to try new postures. The chair also provides more security to strengthen muscles and practice balancing, all while boosting your courage and enjoyment of movement.

Gentle Yoga (Online)

Monday 9:00 am – 10:15 am

In gentle yoga, the movement is slow, each movement is linked with breath. The warmup is longer preparing and nurturing the joints, muscles, and connective tissue. The slow and gentle movement allows you to explore your pain-free range of motion so you can come safely and comfortably in and out of the pose, depending on what’s right for your body on any given day.
