Chair Yoga

Tuesdays 3:30 - 4:15 pm

In this class, JJ guides students with alignment cues for better posture, core strength, and flexibility all while sitting in a chair.  Sometimes students comment on how excited they are to get such deep stretches while sitting. Occasionally we get up and out of the chair and do yoga poses to the chair, or use the chair to help balance.


Level 2

Wednesdays 5:30 - 6:30 pm

In this class, JJ guides students with alignment cues for better posture, core strength, and flexibility that builds from week-to-week over the course of the session.  Each week brings a new focus, and handouts are included. Prerequisite: Completion of Level 1 or JJ’s permission.

All of JJ’s classes are breath-focused meaning there is a movement for the inhale part of the breath and a movement for the exhale part of the breath. Students will be reminded of the breath cues throughout and encouraged to begin to move their body in sync with the breath. When we are able to do this, great calm and mindfulness comes making your yoga movements like a meditation in motion.
