Chair Yoga Classes in Oakville | Fall 2022
Finally a yoga class where you don’t have to sit on the floor!
Chair Yoga is for you if….
– You have difficulty sitting on the floor for long periods or time, or getting up and down
– Recently had knee or hip replacement (or considering it)
– Have arthritis or osteoporosis
– Want to hangout with a fun bunch of ladies
This isn’t your grandma’s chair yoga class – it’s similar to a typical yoga class but we use our chairs as props for a more gentler practice. Students are encourage to listen to their bodies and work with any limitations. We focus on flexibility, balance, core and coordination. We start and finish each session with a beginner style meditation to help ease anxiety and stress. Typical age of participants is late 50s to early 80s.
