Gentle Chair Yoga + Tea with Lynne
September 19 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pmFree
No prior yoga experience is required, if you can breathe you can do yoga. These classes are gentle, welcoming and accessible to everybody. Chairs, mats and props will be provided.
Each session will focus on a theme such as body awareness, breathing, stress management, healthy posture and living from the heart. Approximately 45 – 55 minutes of yoga including a brief check-in, warm up and yoga postures, guided meditation will be followed by social time over tea and a light snack.
All you need to do is come with a willingness to learn and improve your body and mind, and to meet new people!
There are so many benefits of practicing yoga:
• Increased strength • Improved balance and flexibility • Improved breathing capacity • Increased circulation and confidence. • Reduced stress
Yoga encourages quiet reflection, relaxation, concentration and a sense of well-being.
