CFN961 Chair Hatha Yoga (0-0-0)

If you are a senior, new to exercise or have a disablility that makes exercise difficult, chair yoga may be the answer. Chair yoga uses many traditional yoga poses and modifies them to be done from a chair or with the assistance of a chair allowing more stability and greater ease in doing the poses without the worry, while still getting the benefit of yoga. The Hatha yoga focused on in this class concentrates on breathing techniques that can help lower heart rate and blood pressure, decrease anxiety and nervousness and aid pulmonary function. In addition, the yoga postures can relieve stiff joints and muscles and help with balance and coordination.
