It is often challenging to find safe and grounded practices for students with mobility or balance issues. In a traditional asana class, our typical starting point is standing, kneeling, or lying on a mat on the floor. Chair Yoga utilizes the same mind-body principles as mat practice but from the safety of a chair. Join Carey Sims for a workshop exploring the benefits of Chair Yoga. Learn how to offer your students grounding, spinal awareness, strength building, and ease in the body and breath through Chair Yoga.
