OMC proudly presents Chair Yoga, A Gentle Route to Greater Fitness for Your Mind and Body
If your doctor says you should exercise more, then Chair yoga may be an ideal place for you.
Chair yoga is an all-inclusive, gentle practice in which postures are performed while seated and/or standing with the aid of a chair. From those just beginning in their yoga practice, to those experiencing limitations in mobility or flexibility, to those simply wishing to focus on a gentle practice, chair yoga supports people of all ages, abilities, strengths, or experience levels.
As in classic, floor-based yoga practice, chair yoga provides remarkable benefits of increased flexibility, circulation, balance, mobility, respiration, strength, and body awareness. Pranayama breathing techniques and centering to promote focus, mental clarity, and relaxation are incorporated into the practice of chair yoga.
Come tune in to your body, mind, and heart, creating release, surrender, and calm. Move from your thinking mind to a tranquil heart.
