Chair Yoga

Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. It is in the process of being recognized formally as a type of yoga distinct from other types, such as Iyengar Yoga or Ashtanga yoga. Often the poses, or Asanas, are often adaptations of Hatha yoga poses.

With a chair or two for support, this class challenges the body and mind through strengthening, stretching, relaxing and breathing. Flexibility, and muscle tone will continually improve as your mind, body and spirit work together in harmony. This class is for those who have issue getting up and down from the floor and prefer a chair for their main seat.

Yoga for Cancer

Cancer patients who practice yoga as therapy during their treatment often refer to their yoga practice as a life-saver. ... Whether faced with the scar-tissue of surgery or ongoing nausea and weakness from chemotherapy or radiation,cancer patients endure a long road of physical trials.

Whether you are a cancer patient, survivor, newly diagnosed, in treatment, gathering strength or thriving, yoga can further your recovery and help you feel whole again. ... But not all yoga classes are right forcancer patients and survivors.
