Hartford, CT: Chair Yoga @ Toivo by Advocacy Unlimited, Inc.
Aug 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This class takes traditional yoga postures and techniques and adapts them to be done while seated in a chair or while utilizing a chair for support. This is a great alternative for someone who may have trouble getting up and down off of the ground, someone recovering from an injury, or someone who uses a wheel chair. However, this gentle practice is open to everyone.

Instructor Bio: Michele Matthews is a 200 hour teacher training graduate from Sacred Rivers Yoga, and is also reiki 2 certified. She has been teaching chair yoga therapy since 2013. Michele is passionate about bringing yoga to those whom it may be otherwise inaccessible to.
