Join Mary & Ageless Arts Yoga for Live Online Chair Yoga classes. We invite participants to sign in early and interact with Mary, Tracey and the other participants creating a sense of connection and community. There’s an opportunity to stay online after the class as well, to ask questions and discuss the various poses and flows or other topics of interest.
What you need…
You will require a screen (computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone). Internet access is also required as all classes will be delivered through a private link using the Zoom platform. A stable chair without wheels or arms, which fits your stature so that your feet can firmly touch the floor while you are seated on the chair. It’s important that the chair be stabilized so that it will not slip. Other yoga props often used are a yoga block and a yoga strap or suitable substitutes.
Most importantly, to benefit from the Chair Yoga class fully, was invite you to join classes with an open mind, a positive attitude and a willingness to try the poses and flows along with the slow deep breaths. All the while, paying attention to you body and only doing what feels safe and comfortable.
Why Chair Yoga?
The benefits of chair yoga are many. Mary offers plenty of modifications and options using the chair both as a seat and as a prop to support a variety of modified traditional mat yoga poses. Many clients enjoy the ability to explore poses that may not have been accessible to them without a chair.
We love Chair Yoga with Mary because:
- it’s accessible to everybody and every body
- with the aid of the chair you can explore both standing and seated yoga postures with confidence
- it increases your body’s strength and flexibility along with a sense of well being
- it’s convenient to experience the live online class in the privacy of your own home without the need to travel
- it’s “joint- friendly” and transformative bringing a state of mental calmness
- it’s a wonderful social community of like-minded people
