Chair Yoga

lower back stretch by practicalpedal.comJoin Kellie Burnett for weekly classes. This class is for people at all levels of yoga.

Some benefits of yoga are:

-Improved strength and flexibility
-Improved proprioception, which is a skill of knowing where your body is in space, and coordinating your movements accurately.  This is particularly important in preventing falls, since we are approaching winter time. For people with any disabilities or conditions, it may mean having greater control of your body and its movements.
-Reduction of stress and improvement of mental clarity.
-Opportunities to meet and socialize.
-Improved stress and pain management.

Fridays   2:00 - 3:00 pm
$40 for 8-week session; $10 per drop in.

In these classes, we will focus on warming up and moving the major joints in the body (there are 360 of them!) in a variety of poses in the chair along with gentle standing postures next to the chair to support balance. Matthew's classes are warm and welcoming- there is a place for you here!
