Chair yoga for everyone! This is great way to learn to practice yoga at the office, easily at home or while traveling. Chelsea Parcels will show you how you can use a chair to practice yoga anytime and anywhere.

Chair yoga is often misunderstood to be an age specific practice. However, the truth is we could all benefit from learning to practice this way. Most people spend long hours sitting at a desk, meetings, traveling in a car or a plane, learning to practice in this way will truly reward your mind,body and spirit! It can be done in short amounts of time to fit your schedule.
This workshop will have focus on numerous aspects of yoga! We will:
-use our Breath(pranayama) and connecting it with our poses(asanas).

-learn poses that have different levels(modifications) to fit your level from Beginner to experienced!

-explore using your dristhi (focus point) for concentration.
great for seniors,those who want to explore a new practice,those who work in a office and want to have yoga incorporated throughout their day.

The benefits:
Improved flexibility. Flexibility allows us to do the activities we need and love to do, from twisting while driving to bending over to play with children.

Better concentration. Incorporating breath work with the poses can help clear your brain of unwanted thoughts, improve mood and decrease stress.

Increased strength. Body strength enables us to withstand falls and injury and helps us with balance.

Reduced joint strain. Chair yoga reduces the strain on joints and muscles, which allows someone who is unable to stand for traditional yoga an opportunity to practice too.

Portability and convenience. You can do chair yoga nearly anywhere you can find a place to sit.
